Although the U.S. government has been providing aid to our veterans through the years, many have not received aid or the aid received has not been enough, leading to poverty.
Our nonprofit organization, Veteran Car Donations, seeks to cover for the governmentâ€™s lapses to ensure our veteranâ€™s welfare. This is the underlying reason why we have initiated our La Habra, California car donations program.
Through your generous vehicle donations, we seek to provide substantial assistance to our former troops, who are considered our countryâ€™s living heroes for defending our freedoms and protecting us from those who want to do us harm.
Despite our troopsâ€™ bravery and self-sacrifice, many of them are now struggling after returning home for good from their deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here are the problems theyâ€™re facing and the solutions we are providing:
Our Veteransâ€™ Problems and How We Are Trying to Ease Them
Problem:Â Unemployment is the leading problem among veterans. According to official records, the official unemployment rate of post-9/11 veterans is 10 percent. This is 2.7 percent higher compared to the general unemployment rate of civilians in the United States. Given that there were soldiers who returned home disabled, another 3 percent has been added to the official veteran unemployment rate.
Solution: The military and veteran nonprofit organizations that we have partnered with have programs that provide scholarships, skills enhancement, and job training for veterans.
Problem: Disability and homelessness are making life very difficult for many of our veterans. Returning home with a serious injury is causing depression among our retired troops. Soldiers who suffered serious injuries are not able to work and end up living on the streets.
Solution: Our La Habra, California car donations program provides our troops with medical aid and helps build mortgage-free specially adapted homes for physically handicapped veterans.
Problem: Our troopsâ€™ mental health was greatly affected by the harsh and life-threatening situations they encountered during combat missions. Records show that 13 to 20 percent of the troops who returned home showed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Worst, some of them committed suicide.
Solution: Veteran Car Donations provides grief counseling sessions to active military personnel, veterans, and their families as well.
These are just some of the programs that we are undertaking the benefit of our veterans and their families. With your La Habra, California car donations, we will be able to sustain our support for our retired troops.
Benefits for La Habra, California Car Donors
Our veterans are not the only ones who stand to benefit from our La Habra, California car donations program. Our donors themselves will receive perks when they donate their vehicles, too.
After your old unwanted vehicle is towed, you can file for a top tax deduction that will lower your taxable income when you file your itemized income tax return.
Donating your vehicle will actually save you money since you donâ€™t have to spend for costly repairs, which your prospective buyer will likely require if youâ€™re planning to sell your car. Our La Habra, California car donations program accepts almost all types of vehicles whether in running or non-running condition.
The best reward of all that awaits you is the sense of fulfillment in having done something good for your fellow Americans, and living heroes at that, who are trying to eke out a living.
