What if we told you that you can quickly and conveniently dispose of your old vehicle without having to spend a dollar on anything? When you take part in our Elgin, Illinois car donations program, youâ€™ll set yourself up for the easiest way to get that money pit out of your driveway. We at Veteran Car Donations will use your boneshaker to support our former servicemen and servicewomen who are facing tough challenges in their effort to reintegrate themselves back into the civilian sector.
The veterans living in Elgin will surely benefit from your charitable contribution. According to the United States Bureau of Census, as of July 2018, there were 3,587 veterans among Elginâ€™s estimated population of 111,683. Furthermore, according to Data USA, most of these vets served during the Vietnam War.
The Challenges of Transitioning to Civilian Life
Did you know that one of the most challenging moments in a service memberâ€™s life is when they transition into the private sector? Not only do most of them have a hard time fitting themselves back into their families as they re-establish their roles in them, but they also find it difficult to get civilian jobs that could match the skills and experience they developed in the military. Whatâ€™s more, many of our troops who were deployed in conflict areas overseas came home with untreated mental health issues, which eventually led some of them to engage in alcohol and substance abuse as a coping mechanism.
How Your Giving Affects the Lives of Our Heroes
We at Veteran Car Donations support our IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit partners by auctioning off the vehicle donations we receive and using the proceeds to help fund their critical programs and services. The funding helps our charity partners in providing needy veterans will the following benefits:
- Mortgage-free and specially adapted housing benefits for veterans who are suffering from severe combat-related injuries and disabilities;
- Mortgage-free housing benefits for those who are without homes;
- Free access to mental healthcare facilities for those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues;
- General transitioning assistance for returning troops;
- Educational scholarships and tutoring services for those who wish to earn college degrees;
- Job training and mentoring services for those who want to secure stable and decent jobs;
- Grief counseling for active-duty members, veterans, and their families who are grieving the loss of loved ones;
