Military veterans make up more than 13% of the population of San Diego County, and San Diego County is estimated to have the third-highest number of veteran residents of any county in the nation. During the month of November, we wanted to find a way to thank our local veterans for the sacrifices they’ve made for us. So, we sent our helpful Honda people in blue shirts to local gas stations to surprise veterans and active Military members with FREE GAS!

We headed to gas stations throughout San Diego County – including San Diego, Lemon Grove, Carlsbad, Vista, Escondido, and Chula Vista – to give a pump of helpfulness to veterans and active military members. One veteran commented, “This is such a nice thing for you to do on Veteran’s Day!” We helped them with free gas to them regardless of what car they drove: “This is really cool that Honda is buying gas for all military members and not just Honda drivers. Thank you so much!”

Don’t worry – we also shared the love with our loyal Honda drivers, too – and they were so shocked! “I’ve seen your commercials and now I finally see you helpful people in person and I’m getting free gas? You made my DAY!” And “It’s so great you do this for Honda drivers. It makes me feel special!”

We helped hundreds of Honda drivers and veterans during the month of November, and will continue to help residents across San Diego County for the holidays, too!

We’ll be our helpful ‘elves surprising people with free holiday trees, helping families in need with gifts and decorations, helping homeless families with warm holiday meals, and more. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at SDHondaDealers to find out where we’ll be, or reach out to us if you need some help. We may just bring you a Random Act of Helpfulness.
