John Deere Partners with National Mall, Provides Honor Edition Gator Utility Vehicles for Special Event Support

John Deere partnered with the Trust for the National Mall to support events on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., including November’s Veterans Day ceremonies commemorating the men and women of the U.S. military. The company provided three of its XUV835M Honor Edition Gator Utility Vehicles (Honor Gators) to be used by onsite staff throughout the ceremonies. In addition, one Honor Gator will remain with the National Mall as a donation to support future events, John Deere reports. The Trust for the National Mall is the nonprofit philanthropic partner of the National Park Service dedicated to restoring, preserving and enriching the National Mall.

“John Deere, with support from the Atlantic Tractor dealership, is proud to donate an Honor Gator for use in the planning and execution of these beloved national celebrations and observances on ‘America’s Front Yard,’” the company stated in a press release.

Maureen McCormack, go-to-market manager, Gator Utility Vehicles, stated: “This Veterans Day, John Deere is reaffirming its commitment to the military and our veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect this country. Our support of the National Mall will help preserve some of the nation’s most important reminders of our past, while reaffirming our outlook on the future.”

“Veterans Day is an important time on the National Mall when we reflect on the immense sacrifices that the men and women in our nation’s military have made for our country,” said Catherine Townsend, president and CEO at The Trust for the National Mall. “The Trust for the National Mall is honored to have the continued support of John Deere in caring for America’s Front Yard, and in keeping the nation’s most sacred and historic grounds in pristine condition for all to admire for years to come.”
