Local veterans gifted with newly refurbished cars
Veterans Day is Sunday but Thursday was a special day for two veterans in our area.
They're now both parking newly refurbished cars in their driveways.
Progressive Insurance sponsored the nationwide event, handing out keys to more than a hundred veterans.
In Portland, Sarah Kemp and Angela Schultze were honored Thursday.
Both say this gift will have a huge impact on their lives.
"More freedom. I can get to my doctor's appointments; I can get to my therapy appointments," said Schultze.
"Being a single momma and in grad school, I can't do what I need to do without a reliable vehicle," Kemp said.
Both want to pay this new gift forward. They're looking for ways they can use the cars to help other veterans.
