Our veterans have gone through thick and thin trying to protect us and our country from danger. When they were still active-duty soldiers deployed in a war-torn country where American interests were at stake, they dealt with hardships every single day. They went on life-threatening missions and saw their comrades wounded or killed in battle even as they badly missed their loved ones back home.
They were eventually sent back home at the end of their tour of duty, with some getting discharged or retired. Some came home unscathed and were able to readjust to civilian life. But many others were not so lucky. Some were killed in combat while others came home scarred for life by the horrors they witnessed on the battlefield. Some were severely injured and came home on crutches or wheelchairs. Others were diagnosed as victims of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and traumatic brain injury.
These brave servicemen and women put their lives on the line for us, to protect our freedom and our nationâ€™s security. They were hailed as heroes and protectors of the American people.
Sadly, however, the accolades turned out to be mere lip service. Many of our â€śheroesâ€ť failed to receive the honor and benefits due them. All their exploits were forgotten. And now they wallow in poverty, unable to find decent jobs because of various military-related circumstances.

A Very Easy Way to Donate
Our Lakewood, Colorado car donations process is very easy. In just three simple steps, you can make the lives of the veterans in Lakewood better!
- Step 1: Call us at 877-594-5822 or fill out our online donation form.
Tell us your personal contact information as well as a few details about your donated vehicle: its year, make, model, mileage, VIN and general comments about its running condition.
- Step 2: Tell us your preferred date, time and place for your vehicleâ€™s free pick-up.
Once you tell us the date, time, and place where youâ€™d want us to pick up your vehicle, weâ€™d coordinate with a licensed towing company in your area to get the job done. You donâ€™t have to pay for towing and you donâ€™t even have to be present on the day of pickup. Weâ€™ll give you a towing receipt that will release you from all liabilities on your car, thereby allowing you to cancel and stop paying for your car registration and insurance.
- Step 3: Wait for the arrival of your tax-deductible receipt in your mailbox.
We work with certified 501(c)3 nonprofits and, such, your donation would enable you to obtain maximum tax deductions. Days after we sell your car at auction, we will mail to you your tax-deductible sales receipt. If you itemize your taxes on your federal tax return using this document, youâ€™d get to claim your tax reward.
