From the war-torn countries where they have been deployed, a number of our troops have returned home with physical disabilities and mental disorders â€“ the tell-tale marks of the brutalities of the war that they fought. These are the soldiers who came home with missing limbs and who have been diagnosed as suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and depression.
Following their discharge from service, these former soldiers are now in serious trouble. With their condition, they expectedly could not find suitable jobs to be able to feed themselves and their families. Some have not been able to receive government benefits due them for one reason or another.
Research shows that only a handful of mentally troubled veterans have sought medical help. Many have grown distant from their family, peers, and community, adding to the emotional baggage they carry. The lack of support, feeling of isolation, and mental anguish have forced many of them to turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as alcohol and drug abuse. Combined with poverty and homelessness, their situation poses a serious problem not only to themselves and their families but also to their own community.
These deeply troubled veterans are not hard to spot â€“ theyâ€™re almost everywhere, including here in Laguna Woods, California.
While this reality cannot be changed overnight, there are certain steps we can do to help them. Letâ€™s not forget that these are the veterans, our heroes who fought for us to protect our rights and the nationâ€™s security. We owe them a debt of gratitude and more.
This is the reason why Veteran Car Donations has set up our Laguna Woods, California car donations program. This serves as a convenient platform for ordinary citizens to extend their assistance to our struggling veterans, our nationâ€™s heroes.
Our Fast and Simple Car Donations Process
To give our donors a most pleasing donation experience, we have come up with a fast and easy Laguna Woods, California car donations process. There are only three easy steps needed for you to be able to make a difference in the lives of the suffering veterans in your city.
Visit our website and fill out our online vehicle donation form. You may also contact us at 877-594-5822. One of our friendly donation specialists will assist you through the process. We will ask for your vehicleâ€™s information such as its make and model, your preferred time and date for pick-up, and your vehicleâ€™s pick-up location.
After verifying the information you provided, we will make arrangements with a professional towing company to pick up your car. We will pay the towing fee. The towing company will then pick up your vehicle on the date, time, and place you specified. You will receive a donation receipt that will release you from all liabilities on the car youâ€™re donating. You can now de-register your car, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage.
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 tax return for the next tax-filing season.
