Capture the Essence of This Holiday by Honoring Our Military Heroes
While many of us are looking forward to enjoying the Memorial Day weekend with BBQ parties, epic sales, and beach trips, let’s not forget what the holiday is truly all about: paying tribute to our nation’s courageous men and women who sacrificed their lives to preserve our freedom and protect our security. We might not be where we are today if it weren’t for their bravery and heroism.
How about spending Memorial Day on the 30th of May with your family while doing things to honor our fallen heroes?. Find time with your loved ones to pause and reflect, brush up on our history, and reach out to the surviving families of our war dead as well as our active-duty troops and veterans alike.
To help you make the most of this special day with your family, Veteran Car Donations has rounded up five meaningful ways to celebrate Memorial Day:
- Put together care packages for deployed troops, veterans, and military families.
Show your support to our service members by goods for them through Operation Gratitude, This nonprofit charity delivers care packages to deployed U.S. service members overseas. It also hosts several events during the Memorial Day weekend. You can also host a neighborhood drive to collect goods for the benefit of our soldiers, veterans, and military families.
- Support veteran-owned businesses.
Did you know that 2.5 million small businesses in the United States are owned by veterans? If you plan to go shopping or dining out this Memorial Day weekend, why not visit a couple of them? You may want to refer to the Veteran Owned Business Directory for a comprehensive list of veteran-owned businesses across the country.
- Help your kids write gratitude notes.
Remind your little ones that Memorial Day is much more than just taking a break from school by having them pen appreciation letters to active-duty and reserve service members as well as veterans. Then, bring these letters to any A Million Thanks drop-off location for a speedy delivery.
- Volunteer in your community.
Volunteering your service to support the needy is one of the best ways to echo the spirit of Memorial Day. You may volunteer your service at your local soup kitchen, teach orphans day-to-day work and life skills, or care for a senior resident of a nursing home at least for a day. Emulate the deeds of the men and women we honor on Memorial Day by doing something selfless for our fellow Americans, especially those in need.
- Donate to a charity that supports our troops and veterans.
Another way to give back to our heroes is by donating to military organizations and nonprofits that support our troops, veterans, and their families as well. Choose a cause that matters most to you — either homeless vets, wounded soldiers, or grieving military families. Give whatever amount you’re willing to give.
You can also donate non-cash items. For instance, some military and veteran nonprofit organizations accept vehicle donations.
Here’s How Your Auto Donation Can Transform the Lives of Our Vets
If you have a car that you don’t drive anymore, you can use that to extend a helping hand to the struggling underprivileged veterans in your community. All you have to do is turn over that vehicle to us at Veteran Car Donations, We’ll use your donation to improve the lives of our former service members residing in your area.
Our team will put your vehicle up for auction, with the proceeds going to our veteran-focused nonprofit partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are dedicated to helping veterans who are suffering from poverty, homelessness, unemployment, disabilities, and illnesses, including mental health conditions.
Our nonprofit partners use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with free medical care, psychotherapy services, financial aid, housing assistance, family support, educational scholarships, employment opportunities, and many other benefits.
You will also benefit from your charitable contribution since you’ll get to enjoy our free pickup and towing service anywhere in the United States. You’ll also love our quick, simple, and convenient donation process where you don’t have to do any paperwork.
On top of that, you’ll have the privilege of claiming the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.
However, these material rewards are nothing compared to the joy of knowing that you’re helping uplift the lives of our nation’s heroes.
We accept almost all vehicle types, including those that are no longer running.
