Save and Transform the Lives of Our Struggling Veterans
Thousands of our troops retire from the service each year, and many of them face serious problems during and after transition back to civilian life. Our Tallahassee, Florida vehicle donations program is meant to address these problems.
Here in Tallahassee, there are more than 8,000 veterans â€” including more than 2,000 who fought in the Vietnam War and over 3,800 who fought in the First Gulf War or Second Gulf War. The biggest age demographic is between 35 and 54, with more than 2,200 of the areaâ€™s veterans in that range. Despite their sacrificial service, these veterans face challenges: More than 11% are at the poverty level, and over 24% deal with disabilities.Â
With the funds we generate from your donated vehicles, we atÂ Veteran Car Donations are able to provide funding for the programs of our nonprofit organization partners. These programs are meant to provide our veterans â€” our retired troops who fought for us to defend our nationâ€™s security and freedoms â€” the gratifying life they deserve after retirement.
We quickly transfer the proceeds from the sale of your Tallahassee, Florida donations to our military and veteranÂ non-profit organization partners. The funds are then used to support their strategically planned programs for active and retired troops to help them during and after the transition to civilian life.
3 Major Problems Our Veterans Face After Retirement
Our Tallahassee, Florida car donation program seeks to enable our charity partners to provide the services to our veterans that our government could not provide. The services they provide tackle theÂ major problems faced by our veterans, including:
UnemploymentÂ â€“ The unemployment rate for veterans was once placed at 13 percent, but this dipped to 11.2 percent after a year. Yet this rate remains higher than the countryâ€™s civilian unemployment rate, which is at 7.3 percent. It is estimated that only 40 percent of our troops have prepared for a post-service career.
Post-traumatic stress disorderÂ â€” An estimated 20 percent of U.S. soldiers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan were found to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or clinical depression upon their arrival back home. The worst cases of this have seen soldiers committing suicide.
HomelessnessÂ â€“ Roughly 26 percent of the countryâ€™s homeless population have served in the military. After their retirement, veterans have a hard time looking for a job, especially those who suffered disabilities and those who have fallen to substance abuse like drugs and liquor. These former soldiers sometimes end up living on the streets.
