Everyone knows that a soldierâ€™s life is dangerous, demanding, and difficultâ€”particularly to a soldier assigned to combat duty overseas.
However, to some veterans, that is not even the hardest part of their lives. Whatâ€™s even more difficult than life in the battlefield is the life of aÂ discharged soldier facing so many tough hurdlesÂ in his bid to return to a peaceful and productive civilian life.
There are various reasons why some veterans canâ€™t find good enough jobs that will enable them to support themselves and their family. The hurdles include lack of civilian work experience, no college education, and service-related physical injuries and mental disorder. Making life even more difficult for these veterans is their inability to get the government benefits due them for one reason or another.
With no one to turn for support, these veterans sink deeper into poverty, leading to homelessness. The once mighty warriors have been reduced to beggars, sprawled on the sidewalks begging for food, clothing, and shelter.
Seeing these impoverished veterans is truly heartbreaking. How can this happen? How can these former soldiers touted as theÂ nationâ€™s heroesÂ for defending and protecting our rights and security be reduced to what they are now?
These veterans can be seen almost anywhere in America, including here in thisÂ city. That is why we atÂ Veteran Car DonationsÂ have set up our Pleasanton, California car donations program to serve as a convenient platform for the people of this city to show mercy and compassion to these veterans who have done so much and sacrificed a lot for our country.
By donating your old unwanted cars to us, you would lift up the spirits of these former soldiers and encourage them to lift themselves and begin living productive lives.

Our Fast and Easy Car Donation Process
We at Veteran Car Donations have established a fast and easy process for donating vehicles to our Pleasanton, California car donations program. There are just three steps in the process, and it starts when you call us at 877-594-5822 or when you fill out ourÂ online donation form. One of our friendly donations specialists will ask you about your carâ€™s make and model, your preferred time and date for pickup, and your vehicleâ€™s location.
The second step is the towing of your vehicle. Before we take away your vehicle, we will issue you a donation receipt that will release you from all liabilities on the car youâ€™re donating. With this receipt, you can now de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage.
The third step is the sale of your car through auction. Within 30 days after your car is sold, we will send you by mail your 100 percent tax-deductible sales receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of yourÂ tax deduction claimÂ when you file your itemized federal tax return.
