Donate Vehicles for Change!
Have you ever wondered if that beat-up, rusty piece of machinery that’s been clogging up your driveway for ages now could ever be useful to you again? As you take a look at your clunker, you’d probably think about the years it has served you well and how attached you’ve become to it. However, at some point, you’ll need to realize that, like most of the things you love, a time will come when you must learn to let that vehicle go.
Serving Those Who Served Us First
Today, we encourage you to take a moment to think about the brave men and women in our armed forces who volunteered, made sacrifices, and risked their lives to preserve and uphold our country’s ideals of freedom, democracy, and peace.
These are our nation’s heroes who deserve to live happy, contented lives after their separation from the service.
Ironically, however, many of them live miserable lives due to service-connected disabilities, mental health issues, lack of jobs, and homelessness due to poverty.
Did you know that although our government continues to take all necessary measures to ensure their welfare, there’s still a yawning gap of service that needs to be filled?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that as of 2017, the number of unemployed U.S. veterans was over 370,000 while the unemployment rate of vets with service-connected disabilities was at 4.3%. Furthermore, the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) states that as of 2015, the nation had over 47,000 homeless veterans, not counting thousands of others who are at risk of joining the ranks of the homeless if the government and the private sector fail to provide them the much-needed housing solution.
The Good News: You Can Donate Vehicles for Change!
The good news is that although your trusty old truck may have finally hit the end of the road, you can still turn it into a powerful tool that can change and uplift the lives of our needy former military servicemen and servicewomen as well as their families. If you decide to donate it to us at Veteran Car Donations, you’ll help fund the programs and services that out IRS-registered 501(c)3 nonprofit partners are delivering to promote the welfare of our heroes. With our combined efforts, deserving veterans will have free access to the following services:
- General transitioning assistance for those who get separated from the service
- Mortgage-free and specially adapted homes for those who are homeless and those who have severe combat-related injuries
- Education scholarships and tutoring support for those who want to pursue higher education
- Orientation programs to inform veterans and their families of the wide range of benefits available for them
- Grief counseling for the families of fallen heroes
- Free mental healthcare for those who are struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) and other mental health issues.
