With a gargantuan population of over 20.4 million American veterans, it is not surprising that the U.S. government is unable to cater to the needs of many of them. This is precisely the reason why Veteran Car Donations exists: to help provide for the needs of those who have been left out in the cold, unable to receive government benefits.
Many of our veterans find it challenging to transition to civilian life. They have difficulty searching for stable jobs, thus failing to meet even their basic needs. Moreover, some of our discharged troops are still trying to recover from the trauma they experienced during their deployment overseas.
Some of these suffering veterans are living among us in this town. They are among those who our nation regards as heroes for putting their lives on the line to fulfill their mission of protecting our rights and our countryâ€™s security. Thatâ€™s why we have set up our Orange Park, Florida car donations program. This serves as a convenient platform for the people of this town to show their appreciation and gratitude for the sacrifices done by these former warriors who spent the best years of their lives serving our nation. They richly deserve your car donations that somehow serve as a partial repayment for the blood, sweat, and tears they shed for our nation.
How Our Veterans Will Benefit from Your Car Donations
When you donate a vehicle to our Orange Park, Florida car donations program, the proceeds from its sale will be used to fund programs for our veterans that provide the following benefits to our veterans:
- Mental and physical healthcare
- Transitioning assistance after their return home from overseas deployment and subsequent discharge or retirement from the service
- Building mortgage-free and specially adapted homes for those who suffered severe service-related injuries and are now handicapped
- Job training programs to increase their chances of getting a job
- Grief counseling sessions to the spouses and families of those who perished in combat
- Educating every veteran of the government benefits that heâ€™s qualified to enjoy
About Orange Park, Florida
Orange Park is a town in Clay County, Florida, and a suburb of Jacksonville. The town got its name because its founders wanted to develop a fruit-growing industry. However, the farmersâ€™ crops were destroyed in the Great Freeze of 1894â€“95. Farmers from other areas were able to make a recovery, but not those in Orange Park.
The Florida Winter Home and Improvement Company earlier established the town in 1877. Â This company obtained a large piece of land at Laurel Grove so as to establish a retreat as well as a small farming community.
Orange Park has various historical sites as well as local museums. Some of its popular places include the Museum of Science and History, the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, the Yellow Bluff Fort Historic State Park, and the Kingsley Plantation.
The Little Talbot Island State Park is a new barrier island where guests can discover Gopher tortoise, hawks, and owls. There are also provisions for biking, fishing, camping, canoeing, and picnicking.
In a data released by the United States Census Bureau, as of July 2016, there were 8,783 people residing in Orange Park. Of this number, 1,385 were veterans.

Aside from this, there are other great perks you will receive when you donate to our Orange Park, Florida car donations program. They include:
- Maximized tax deduction
You will receive a maximized tax deduction for your carâ€™s value or fair market price. We at Veteran Car Donations will work hard on our end to give you the most value for your donation, refurbishing your car before we sell it so it can fetch a higher price during its auction.

In most cases, we accept donated vehicles regardless of their condition.
- Get extra garage space
Donating your vehicle means that you could get it out of your garage in no time, free of charge, and you get the extra room for that new automobile that youâ€™ve been itching to purchase.

Weâ€™ll handle all the documentation related to your donation — from title transfer to your tax-deductible receipt issuance.
