Penske in the Community

Giving Back is in Our DNA

Associates helping community

Penske's bright yellow trucks are a beacon of hope when disasters strike.

We work behind the scenes with major relief agencies to transport emergency relief and supplies. We support our customers and local non-profit groups with rental vehicles to help them deliver items to those in need.

We've supported hundreds of charities over the years, including Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity, Support Military Families, Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Clubs, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Salvation Army and the American Red Cross, among others.

This video highlights a small sample of how we truly are people helping people move ahead.
