The life of a veteran is not easy at all. Many of our troops who have returned home following the end of their peacekeeping missions abroad are now faced with challenges more daunting than the ones they faced in the battlefields. Following their discharge from the service, many of these new veterans are having tremendous problems in transitioning to civilian life.
The reasons for this are basically twofold: lack of job opportunities and insufficient, or lack, of government support. The problem is more severe to those who came home with missing limbs and other disabilities and with troubled minds due to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and depression.
Veterans with these service-related physical injuries and mental disorders badly need medical and other forms of assistance. With over 21 million veterans to attend to, the U.S. government cannot be expected to provide assistance to each and every one of our countryâ€™s struggling veterans. In fact, many are unable to get the benefits due them.
Itâ€™s a shame that many of our veterans are suffering after all the sacrifices they made, risking their lives and getting bloodied to protect our rights and our nationâ€™s security. Instead of welcoming and caring arms to greet them on their return home, many of them are mostly forgotten, left on the streets to beg for food, clothing, medical care, and shelter.
Some of these poor and troubled veterans can be found in this city, and itâ€™s now up to their fellow citizens to help them. That is the reason why we at Veteran Car Donations have set up our Lake Forest, California car donations program. The program serves as a convenient platform for Lake Forest residents to help the impoverished veterans in their city. With your car donations, you will be able to help our former soldiers regain their dignity and lift themselves up from poverty.
How You Can Extend Help to Needy Veterans
We have come up with a fast and simple way to generate funds for the benefit of our struggling veterans through our Lake Forest, California car donations program. Our three-step process has been designed to provide our donors with utmost convenience to make their donating experience as pleasant and as rewarding as possible. The process goes like this:
- First, you need to get in touch with us.
As soon as you made up your mind on donating your old, unwanted vehicle for the benefit of our veterans, call us at 877-594-5822. You may also go online and fill out our online donation form to get you started. We will need information like the year, make and model of your car, its overall condition, mileage and your contact details.Â If you can upload a photo of the vehicle, so much the better!
- Schedule your totally free towing.
An affiliate professional towing company in your area will come to pick up your car at your most convenient time and day. Take note that the towing service is totally free. If you prefer not to be seen during the vehicle pick-up, itâ€™s up to you. Just make sure to leave the vehicleâ€™s title and keys inside the car so we can have them. Weâ€™ll give you your donation or tow receipt that will free you from all liabilities on your car, thereby allowing you to cancel and stop paying for your car registration and insurance.
- Receive your tax-deductible receipt!
We will send you by mail your 100 percent tax-deductible sales receipt within days after the sale of your car at auction. The receipt will indicate 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. If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you are eligible to take a deduction of the fair market value of the vehicle up to $500 without further documentation. If your vehicle was sold for more than $500, you can claim that exact amount as your tax deduction.
