The Freedom Ride is one of several events that Nuvision hosts and/or participates in throughout the year to recognize and support veterans, active-duty military, first-responders, students and families-in-need. Just last month for Memorial Day, Nuvision gave away more than 11,000 gallons of free gasoline, along with free car washes and lunch, to veterans and active-duty military at separate events in Huntington Beach and Cheyenne, Wyoming. Throughout the year, Nuvision promotes financial literacy with a college scholarship and essay program, and its employees routinely donate clothing and food to homeless and underprivileged families.
