As our nationâ€™s troops return to their respective hometowns following the completion of their tours of duty overseas, it is not rare to see those who have been discharged from the service having great difficulty in transitioning to civilian life.
These new veterans face new obstacles that for many of them are even more difficult to hurdle than the ones they faced in the battlefields.
These are the veterans who could not find a way to support themselves and their family because of inability to land a decent job and get government benefits supposed to be due them. These are the veterans who are still struggling with their service-connected physical disabilities and mental illnesses such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), anxiety, depression, anger issues, and many more.
Life has become so miserable and painful for some of our veterans that they have resorted to using illegal drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms. Some who could not take it anymore have been forced to take their own lives. Others have been forced to live on the streets, joining Americaâ€™s homeless people who beg for food and money on our streets and sidewalks.
Our former servicemen and women have fought and risked their lives for us. They endured so much hardship and made plenty of sacrifices to defend our rights and protect our nationâ€™s security. Theyâ€™ve done invaluable service to our nation, thatâ€™s why theyâ€™re called our nationâ€™s heroes. Thatâ€™s why they donâ€™t deserve the kind of treatment theyâ€™re getting today.
This is the reason why Veteran Car Donations is here. Together with our nonprofit organization partners, we have committed ourselves to improving the lives of our veterans by filling the gaps of services that the government could not provide.
We have launched vehicle donation programs all over the United States â€“ including our Chino Hills, California car donations â€“ to generate funds that will be used by our charity partners to deliver vital services to our struggling veterans in the area.
How Your Car Donations Will Benefit Our Veterans
Your participation in our Chino Hills, California car donations will enable our charity partners to sustain and even expand the services theyâ€™re delivering to our veterans and even to our active-duty servicemen and women as well as their families. Here are some of these services:
- Mortgage-free housing assistance for homeless veterans;
- Custom-built homes with no mortgage for veterans who have physical disabilities as a result of the serious injuries they suffered in combat;
- Medical treatment for veterans who are suffering from physical and mental health conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, depression, anxiety attacks, and many more;
- Skills and job-related trainings to provide veterans the qualifications needed for employment;
- Educational and mentoring scholarships to allow veterans to graduate from college;
- Grief counseling, therapy, and other means of support for families of soldiers who were killed in action;
- Educate veterans on the full range of government benefits due them and how to get such benefits.
How to Get Started with Your Car Donation
Weâ€™ve designed our Chino Hills, California car donations program with our donorsâ€™ convenience and satisfaction in mind. This is shown in our fast and simplified car donation process that consists of just three easy steps:
First, you either fill out our online donation form or call us at 877-594-5822. We will need the following details from you:
- Your contact information
- Your carâ€™s year, make, model, and mileage, and VIN
- Condition (in running condition or not)
- Title availability
After we validate the information you shared, weâ€™ll ask you your preferred time, date, and location for your carâ€™s pickup. Weâ€™ll assign a professional towing company to haul off your car. Before they pick up your car, they will hand you a tow receipt, a document that releases you from all liabilities on the vehicle you just donated, allowing you to cancel and stop paying for your carâ€™s insurance coverage and registration.
Once your car is bought at auction, we will send you by mail your carâ€™s fully tax-deductible sales receipt. That document bears the final selling price of your car. The stated amount will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claims when you file your itemized federal income tax return for the next tax-filing season.
The Types of Vehicles We Accept for Donation
Nearly every type of vehicle is welcome in our Chino Hills, California car donations program. If the car you intend to donate is not in good shape, if it has scratches or dents, or if it has not run for several years, we will still be happy to take it off your hands.
Here are just some common vehicle types that we often receive as donations:
- Golf carts
If the vehicle youâ€™re donating is not on this list, please contact us. Chances are, weâ€™ll still accept it.
However, we canâ€™t process for donation stolen or abandoned vehicles because they lack the prerequisite for selling them at auction â€“ title or proof of ownership. We also have to turn down offered vehicles that are so worn out that they have little cash value.
