As they returned home from overseas deployment, our countryâ€™s soldiers found themselves fighting another battle: the battle to find stable jobs and live in decent homes with their families.
Many returned to their homeland and were subsequently discharged from the service due to physical disabilities, mental issues, and other reasons. These are the veterans who are now having difficulty adjusting to civilian life â€” our heroes who are now confronting just as manyÂ struggles in their homelandÂ as in the battlefields in war-torn countries where they were deployed.
However, we are not powerless to express our gratitude and support to our veterans. The easiest and most convenient way of extending a helping hand to them is by donating your vehicle to us atÂ Veteran Car DonationsÂ by way of our Anaheim, California car donations program.
Your car donation will aid our dedicatedÂ non-profit organization partnersÂ that are providing various support services to our veterans and their families. Simply put, you have the power to create a significant difference in the lives of our veterans by helping improve their living condition with our donation.
Once you decide to take part in our Anaheim, California car donations program, we will auction your vehicle. We will promptly transfer the proceeds from the sale to our charity partners. The funding will help subsidizeÂ programs for our veteransÂ that offer education scholarships, tutoring, job training, transitioning assistance, mentoring, grief counseling, and adapted homes.

Supporting the Veterans in Anaheim, California
In a data released by Census.gov, as of 2015, there were 10,886 veterans in Anaheim City, with 2,560 of them having disabilities. Some of these veterans are unemployed and homeless. The majority of the cityâ€™s veteran population served during the Vietnam War, with veterans of the First and Second Gulf Wars making up most of the remainder. This means most of the cityâ€™s veterans are older, above the age of 65. Of the veteran population, roughly 8.5% live in poverty. The need for services that support these individuals in great.Â
Witnessing first-hand the situations of veterans in Anaheim is very disheartening. OurÂ unsung heroesÂ fought selflessly to preserve the peace and protect our freedoms and our nationâ€™s security. While they had every opportunity to stay with their loved ones at home, they chose to enlist in the U.S. armed forces and became our nationâ€™s guardians and warriors to defend us against those who seek to do us harm.
They gave our country strength and hope. For this, they deserve all the help that we can provide them with to improve their living situation now that their military career has come to an end.
