Wells Fargo knows buying a vehicle is one of the most expensive purchases most people make and budgeting for a vehicle may not be easy for everyone, especially for returning heroes who are focusing on transitioning back to civilian life. We are pleased to work with Lejeune Honda Cars to support Military Warriors Support Foundation’s Transportation4Heroes program to help combat-wounded veterans and Gold Star Spouses.
Since 2015, Wells Fargo has donated more than 50 vehicles and financial mentoring, valued at over $1.5 million, through our Sponsored Vehicle Donation Program to support combat-wounded veterans, Gold Star families, and military-and-veteran-related nonprofit organizations in collaboration with auto dealerships across the country.
Jesus Vasquez joined the military in 2001, in hopes of finding a way to support his family after the loss of his father to cancer. After boot camp, Sergeant Vasquez became a Recon Marine and later served in the Marine Special Operations Battalion. Throughout his military career, he was stationed all around the world and deployed to countries like Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other Special Operations humanitarian deployments. After 11 years of serving in the Marine Corps, Sergeant Vasquez was medically retired and received many awards for his bravery and service, including a Combat Action Ribbon with Gold Star, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal and more. Now, he lives in Rocky Point, North Carolina with his wife and four children and enjoys family time playing games and going to the beach.
Since 2015, Military Warriors Support Foundation has awarded over 100 payment-free vehicles through their Transportation4Heroes program. In addition to vehicles, they provide family and financial mentoring to combat-wounded veterans and Gold Star Spouses. Through all of their programs, they have enabled their Hero families to pay off over $23 million in personal debt.
