An old unwanted car donated to our Reno, Nevada car donations program could bring new hope to a suffering veteran, helping him rise up to regain his dignity and start building a better future for himself and his family.
Today, we give you the opportunity to show your gratitude to our heroes and appreciation of the sacrifices they made so that we could continue enjoying freedom. Quite frankly, they need more than the usual â€śthank you, veteransâ€ť banners that we put up on Veterans Day.
By donating a car you no longer use to Veteran Car Donations, you will send this powerful message to our former servicemen and women: They are important. Donate a vehicle to charity that you donâ€™t need to give our nationâ€™s heroes what they need.
Nevadaâ€™s Veterans: A Quick Look
You can find Reno, Nevadaâ€™s largest city, in the northern part of the state right by the Sierra Nevada Mountainsâ€™ eastern slope known as the Truckee Meadows.Â Based on the July 2016 data released by the United States Census Bureau, the city had a total of 245,255 residents with 16,515 veterans among them.
According to the State of Nevada Department of Veterans Services as of 2015, the estimated number of veterans in Nevada was 243,900 to 350,000. Majority of them fought in the Vietnam and Gulf wars.
Why Do the Vets Need Help?
Weâ€™re talking about former military service members who forsook their college education to fight for this country; those who took bomb blasts and as a result, have permanent physical disabilities; and those who struggle with untreated Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) brought forth by their unspeakable experiences in the wars they fought overseas.
These are the brave men and women who are currently faced with the challenges of the lack of education, homelessness, unemployment, service-connected disabilities, and mental health problems. Unfortunately,Â transitioning out of the military after their discharge from active service is far from easyÂ for most of the veterans.
How Can We Help Them?
Even as the government is doing all it can to meet the wide-ranging needs of our veterans, various private and nonprofit organizations that are committed to ensuring our heroesâ€™ welfare are also carrying a share of the load.Â Veteran Car Donations, along with its charity partners, is among this group. We take care of the fundraising aspect while our nonprofit partners attend to the delivery of services to our needy veterans.
Together, we strive to sustain and improve the following veteran-directed programs:
- Mortgage-free housing for those who are homeless;
- Specially adapted homes for the severely disabled;
- Educational scholarships for those who lack education;
- Employment seminars and job training programs for the unemployed;
- Free medical care for the physically and mentally ill;
- Psychological support for the families of the fallen;
- Information drives on the complete list of veteran benefits;
- Public awareness programs on the needs of the veterans.
Our nonprofit partners get the funds for these services from the proceeds we collect from the sale of donated vehicles through auction. Rest assured that your Reno, Nevada car donations will exclusively benefit the veteran community in The Biggest Little City in the World.
