Support Our Veterans by Joining Evanston, Illinois Car Donations

Are you looking to find ways to get your hands off a vehicle you no longer want? Veteran Car Donations can get your old beater out of your garage as quickly as possible once you decide to take part in our Evanston, Illinois car donations program. Aside from enjoying your own share of rewards – including enjoying our free towing service and a top tax deduction – your donation will greatly benefit the veteran community in your local area.

The Veterans in Evanston

Evanston is an independent city that boasts of a thriving business economy. No wonder, Evanston is considered as one of the richest North Shore communities adjoining Lake Michigan.

According to the United States Census Bureau, as of July 2018, Evanston had an estimated population of 74,106 residents, with 1,843 former military servicemen and women among them.

Some of these veterans still bear the wounds they suffered in battles, which they courageously fought so that all of us can live the lives we lead today. Some of them were lucky enough to have experienced a smooth transition from the military into the private sector.

However, many others are still struggling with various unique challenges that many civilians may not be able to understand. Many of our troops who came back home from combat duty overseas and were subsequently separated from the service are finding it difficult to re-establish their roles in their respective families and communities. They also have great difficulties in finding stable and rewarding jobs.

A good number of these veterans are still suffering from service-connected injuries and disabilities as well as unaddressed mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), anxiety, and depression.

Even though the government has established veteran-focused programs over time, its efforts are simply not enough to cater to the needs of every veteran.

The Impact that Vehicle Donations Make to the Veteran Communities

Veteran Car Donations functions as an online platform for the vehicle donation programs of our IRS-determined 501(C)3 nonprofit partners that are working hard for the welfare of our nation’s heroes and their families. Our job is to sell donated vehicles to the best auction houses within our nationwide network so that we can generate funding for the critical programs and services that our charity partners deliver. When you take part in our Evanston, Illinois car donations program, you’ll help us provide the following benefits to our struggling veterans:

  • Free mental healthcare services for veterans who have untreated mental health problems;
  • Mortgage-free and specially adapted homes for those who have serious mobility problems due to major service-connected disabilities;
  • Mortgage-free homes for those who are homeless;
  • Educational scholarships and tutoring support for those who want to pursue higher education;
  • Job training and mentoring for those who are jobless;
  • Grief counseling for active-duty military personnel, veterans, and military families;
  • Basic needs assistance for returning troops who are transitioning back to civilian life.

You can become a hero to our heroes today. All it takes is an unwanted clunker and a heart for those who served to protect our freedom and security.
