Recognizing the hard-working men and women on the front lines during COVID-19.
Military AutoSource is very thankful to all the essential workers for everything that they’ve been doing on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic. We felt it was important to do our part to show our appreciation and say thanks to those who truly deserve it. We developed, Stronger Together, a social media contest sponsored by Toyota which ran this spring from May 4th through May 31st.
This contest invited the military community to nominate an essential worker from their local community overseas or even someone stateside who deserves to be recognized for their hard work. Entrants could nominate an essential worker by telling us a little about them for the chance to win a $200 VISA gift card for themselves and a $300 VISA gift card for the nominee. We had so many wonderful entries, we picked 3 grand prize winners.
