Those of us who were born only yesterday would probably believe that when our nationâ€™s victorious troops come home from the foreign wars they fought, they would be received with warm embraces and promises of a good life ahead as their fitting reward forÂ their bravery and heroism.
Sadly, this is farthest from the truth.
As it is, many of our troops come home following the completion of their tours of duty abroad without even a whiff of rejoicing and expression of gratitude for the invaluable services they rendered to our nation. And thatâ€™s not the worse part yet.
After they have been discharged from the service, many of our former soldiers are left to fend for themselves. The good carefree life that they dream of after their military days are over turns out to be just that â€” a dream. They now have to deal with unemployment, lack of support, service-related physical disabilities, mental issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, poverty, and homelessness. The pain, desperation, and misery become too much for some, forcing them to resort to coping mechanisms such as alcoholism and substance abuse. Those who canâ€™t take it anymore take the extreme measure â€“ suicide.
To be sure, the government is doing all it can to provide benefits to as many veterans as possible. But their sheer number â€“ at least 19.5 million veterans going by the latest conservative count â€“ and the disproportionate amount of government resources make it hard, if not impossible, to provide services to all needy veterans.
Hence, whatever heroic deeds our veterans have done are forgotten. Sometimes, they receive lip service. People extol their heroism on the battlefield â€“ but thatâ€™s just about it. They are made to believe that thereâ€™s no reward for bravery.
Letâ€™s Bring Back Hope to Our Veterans
However, we can all change that. You can bring real hope back to them by donating your car toÂ Veteran Car DonationsÂ through our Yuma, Arizona car donation program.

Our Quick and Easy Car Donation Process
Our Yuma, Arizona car donations process is amazingly quick and easy, saving you time and effort. There are only three simple steps to get your car towed at no cost to you:
Step 1:Â Visit our website and fill out ourÂ online vehicle donation form. You may also contact us at 877-594-5822 to let us know you want to donate a car to veterans. One of our friendly donation specialists will ask for the make and model of the vehicle youâ€™re donating, your preferred time and date for pick-up, and your vehicleâ€™s pick-up location.
Step 2:Â After verifying the information you provided, we will make arrangements with a professional tow company to pick up your car. We will pay the towing fee. The tow company will then pick up your vehicle on the date, time, and place you specified. The towing company will give you a tow receipt showing that your vehicle was picked up. This releases you from all liability on the car you just donated. You can now de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage. That receipt also allows you to take the minimum tax deduction without further paperwork.
Step 3:Â We sell your car at auction. Within 30 days after the sale of your car, we will mail you your 100 percent tax-deductible sales receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal income tax return for the next tax-filing season.
The Types of Vehicles We Accept for Donation
We at Veterans Car Donations acceptÂ nearly all types of vehiclesÂ in our Yuma, Arizona car donations program. They include:
