Donate A Car In Temecula, California

U.S. veterans are heroes who made numerous sacrifices to defend our liberties and protect our security. Unfortunately, many soldiers return home with mental and physical disabilities that make civilian life difficult. Government services are also not as accessible as many veterans need them to be.

Despite the numerous efforts the U.S. government makes to assist veterans, thousands do not receive the necessary support. Instead of waiting for changes to occur, we’ve decided to take action and do our part to help veterans in need.

We invite you to show your appreciation for local veterans by donating a car to Veteran Car Donations. Since 2015, we’ve been using the funds from donated vehicles to support nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving veterans’ lives. When you donate your used vehicle to us, we’ll find the best opportunities to help your fellow Temecula residents who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Take part in our Veteran Car Donations automobile donation program to support heroes near you today.

The Challenges Faced By Our Veterans

Our veterans continue to face enormous challenges. Their unemployment rate, for instance, remains a problem and is constantly higher than the civilian unemployment rate.

Another challenge many veterans face is mental trauma. The rate of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans varies by era but has never been lower than 10%. Here are a few statistical rates per era:

  • Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan 2001 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq 2011 – 11 to 20 percent PTSD cases among troops
  • 1990 Gulf War or Operation Desert Shield, Saudi Arabia – 12 percent
  • Vietnam War 1955 to 1975 – 30 percent

Some veterans resort to suicide due to loss of control over their mental faculties.

One of our programs for veterans in Temecula provides grief counseling sessions to active and retired troops joined by their families. We aim to educate their families how to support them through this state.

Vehicle Donations: Donors’ Benefits

Do you have an old car, riding lawnmower, boat, RV or any other vehicle lying around? Are you wondering how to dispose of it without taking too much of your time and money? Donate an RV or other vehicle, and Veteran Car Donations will help you make the most out of your old vehicle!

Selling it might not be the best idea. Chances are, you might need to do a lot of costly repairs to make it worth selling or it may take a lot of time to process the paperwork. Our charity car donation program takes your car, boat, truck, RV or other vehicle as it is, so no need to worry about repair fees and documents.

Our organization accepts almost all types of vehicles from motorcycles and family vans to recreational vehicles and farm equipment in running or non-running condition. We accept cars and trucks from nearly all automobile companies, including Toyota, Tesla, Honda and more.

The best part is that when you donate a truck or other vehicle and itemize your taxable income, you can lower your taxes. Our donors can receive a tax deduction based on a portion of the car’s cash value when it sells.

The Car Donations Process

Donating your vehicle to Veteran Car Donations is a breeze. Our experts take the responsibility of processing everything after we gather information. Just follow these three easy steps and get your vehicle towed at zero cost to you.

Step 1: Either you fill out our on Veteran Car Donations or give us a call at 877-494-4662. You will be attended to by our friendly phone representatives.

Step 2: We will verify the information you provided and will make arrangements with a local tow company to pick-up your vehicle at no cost to you. The tow truck company will contact you within 24 to 48 hours and provide you further information about the towing process.

Step 3: The local tow company will pick-up your vehicle and will hand you a receipt to release you from liability.

After this process, your vehicle will be taken to auction. Once sold, Veteran Car Donations will mail you a letter to inform you of the final selling price of your donated car and to send you your tax receipt, which you will need to be able to claim your top tax deduction.

When Temecula veterans return to civilian life, they may encounter challenges such as poverty and unemployment. Veterans make up about 7% of Temecula’s population. The poverty rate among veterans is about 5%, while the disability rate is around 22%. Temecula strives to support the local veteran community in numerous ways. The Veterans Memorial at 28250 Rancho California Road is a space for citizens to honor local veterans and reflect on the sacrifices they made.

Support for veterans is offered at the Temecula Vet Center at 40935 County Center Drive. This organization plays a significant role in helping veterans get the support and solutions they need for success. It offers a comfortable, non-medical setting where veterans can seek help. Temecula offers these resources and others to combat the many challenges veterans face when returning from service. The community is joined to honor and assist local military members.

The closest Veterans Hospital for Temecula veterans, the Jennifer Moreno Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, is located in San Diego.
