One of the best ways to give yourself and the former military servicemen and women in your community a huge favor is by donating a car to our Sandy Springs, Georgia car donations program.
Parting ways with your 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton isnâ€™t easy, but keeping up with the cost of owning an old car is even more difficult for your wallet. Then again, letting go of a clunker youâ€™ve been emotionally attached with is not even half as challenging as being discharged from active military service and facing an uncertain future in the civilian society.
All About Sandy Springs
Sandy Springs is the second largest city in Atlantaâ€™s metropolitan area and the sixth largest city in the state of Georgia. It was formally incorporated in 2005. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the cityâ€™s population estimate as of July 2016, is 105,703, including 4,060 veterans.
The Irony of It All
As soon as a soldier gets back home after the end of a combat or peacekeeping mission abroad, we envision him getting a heroâ€™s welcome and then smoothly reintegrating himself into civilian life where he would find a job that would sustain his needs, maybe even get a new house that he deserves after barely surviving the war. Sadly, this isnâ€™t often the case. More and more former soldiers find life outside the military harder to face than the wars theyâ€™ve fought in overseas.
Countless soldiers who came home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other mental health problems are languishing in the streets of our cities, begging for food or money. Others who have severe service-connected disabilities are drowning in depression and helplessness. Itâ€™s ironic how these honorable veterans lived through wars but end up in destitution in the country that they fought for.
What Your Car Donation Can Do to Help Our Nationâ€™s Heroes
We at Veteran Car Donations have partnered with registered 501(c)3 nonprofits with the aim of ending veteran homelessness, unemployment, untreated mental health issues and other problems that most former G.I.â€™s go through after deployment. The Sandy Springs, Georgia car donations we receive will help provide funding for charity programs that address our veteransâ€™ needs.
Among the services provided for our former military servicemen and women are the following:
- Building permanent mortgage-free housing for homeless veterans;
- Building secure, specially-adapted homes for those with severe service-connected injuries;
