Here’s How You Turn Your Clunker into a Lifesaver

Are you wondering what to do with that old clunker that’s been sitting in your garage for months now? Have you finally given up on costly maintenance and repairs?

Worry not because we have the perfect solution for you: When you hand over that clunker to us at Veteran Car Donations through our Augusta, Georgia car donations program, we’ll quickly remove it from your property at no cost to you and convert it into something life-changing for the struggling veterans in your community. 

We offer vehicle owners the perfect way to get rid of their old beaters while supporting a worthy cause. We’ll auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to support our charity partners in delivering various transformative programs for veterans in need.

Our Veterans’ New Battle 

Many of our veterans are reeling from various issues. Our former servicemen and servicewomen, particularly those who were exposed to combat and traumatic experiences, have to overcome plenty of challenges as they transition to civilian life. Here are those challenges:

  • Lack of skills

Veterans are highly skilled in combat and other areas relating to their military service. Unfortunately, many of their skills are not among those needed in the job market. As a result, veterans find themselves ill-equipped to fill positions. They miss out on employment opportunities despite their willingness and drive. 

  • Homelessness

A sad reality is that thousands of our veterans experience homelessness because they cannot afford to find decent housing. According to a study made in 2017, on any given night, over 40,000 vets spend their days and nights in the streets with no roof above their heads. 

  • Mental health and suicide

Many of our former troops experienced traumatic events during their tour of duty overseas, and these events adversely affected their mental health. As a result, not a few of our veterans have been diagnosed with service-connected post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There is also a good number of our vets who are suffering from depression and anxiety. Left untreated, these mental health woes have pushed many sufferers to their breaking point, leading to suicides.

  • Disabilities

Some veterans reel from permanent disabilities due to service-related injuries. These prevent them from functioning normally and keep them from getting jobs. 

Life-Changing Programs

By donating a vehicle to our Augusta, Georgia vehicle donations program, you’d be supporting a wide range of programs developed to provide veterans with the best quality of life after their service. 

Our partner IRS-certified 501(C)3 nonprofit organizations have crafted these programs to benefit a good number of veterans all over the country depending on their needs. 

One of these programs can help a vet in your community: 

  • Treatment of those suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health challenges;
  • Various forms of assistance to veterans confined in military hospitals;
  • Programs to help veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment that suits their abilities;
  • Financial and other forms of aid to destitute, low-income, and homeless veterans;
  • Therapeutic activities to help veterans rehabilitate and reintegrate themselves into society as well as relax and enjoy the company of their loved ones to strengthen family ties; and
  • Sponsorship of events that encourage companies and organizations to give back to the veteran community.
