Back on the Road 2020
Time for our fourth annual Back on the Road!
C&A is once again selecting two veterans living in the Eldersburg/Sykesville area who could use a little extra help getting or keeping their vehicle going. Whether its for travel to work, finding work or transporting their family around—we’re looking to get them back on the road.
The selected veterans will each receive up to $2,500 of auto repair or maintenance services at no charge. All work will be done to our high standards with our full 24 month/24,000 mile warranty—they will just see an amount due of zero.
We will not advertise their names unless the veteran approves. Everything can be submitted anonymously if you prefer. We may broadly announce what work was done but not who it was for or any identifying images of the vehicles.
Nominations are open from Thursday, November 5th, 2020 at 7:00pm through Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 at 11:45pm.
Selections will be made Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11th, 2020. We will contact the nominator directly and can begin work as soon as it convenient for the nominee.
