Over the years, the United States government has been providing our military men and women assistance after retirement, but there are still thousands of our troops in need of help. Our retired troops are experiencing great difficulties in returning to civilian life, with tens of thousands of them unable to find jobs to support their families.
You can help save them from a life of misery by joining our Antioch, California car donations program. Donate your car to Veteran Car Donations and we will turn your donation into something that would help transform and save the lives of our unsung heroes.
Thousands of our troops who served in either Iraq or Afghanistan have returned home and have been diagnosed with either post-traumatic stress disorder or clinical depression. Some 20 percent of our soldiers who were deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan are suffering from mental trauma and could not find gainful employment.
Poverty, Unemployment, Homelessness: Our Veteransâ€™ Major Problems
Over 1.4 million of our veterans are living below the poverty line while another 1.4 million are just above the line, according to a U.S. Senate report in November 2011.
More than 39,471 of them are homeless, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Official reports say that 3.6 million of our veterans are classified as disabled. These disabilities hinder their employment. The stress and hardship of having such misfortune sometimes transition to depression, leading to suicide in worst cases.
What Your Donations Can Do for Our Retired Troops
With your car donations in the area, we will be able to implement programs that would enable these retired troops to find jobs and get over their depression, saving their future and their lives.
We will forward the proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicles to our leading military and veteran non-profit organization partners. They will, in turn, use the funds to finance programs meant to promote our veteransâ€™ welfare. Specifically, their main objectives include the following:
â€˘ Support programs to help our retired troops gain full-range access to benefits available to them
â€˘ Provide educational assistance and job and skills training for our veterans
â€˘ Finance the construction of specially adapted mortgage-free homes for veterans who suffer from physical disabilities
â€˘ Support programs to educate the public about the struggles faced by our troops after retirement to raise awareness and gain more support for our veterans
These programs are implemented by our non-profit partners. They include the Eagleâ€™s Watch Foundation, Got Your Back Network, Homes for Our Troops, Soldierâ€™s Angels, and Serving Veterans, Inc.
