Day in and day out, our soldiers put their lives on the line when they were deployed in war-torn countries to help eradicate terror and militant groups that could potentially threaten the American homeland. During their time in the field facing enemy forces, they could not help but think that each passing day could be their last.
Now that many of our troops have arrived home following the end of their mission and their subsequent discharge from the service, it is sad to note that they continue to face hard times when they clearly deserve a break from troubles considering all the sacrifices that they did for our nation.
Yes, they are supposed to get benefits from the government. However, many fail to receive such benefits. Compounding their problem is their difficulty in finding jobs so that they could support themselves and their families.
Where will our veterans turn to when they need support? Who will be there to give them the support they richly deserve?
This is where Veteran Car Donations comes in. We are here to provide and fill in the gaps in government service.
Here in this New York town, we have set up our Huntington, Long Island car donations program to encourage residents to join us in extending assistance to the struggling veterans in your own town. By donating to us your old and unwanted cars or other vehicles, you will be uplifting the lives of our former soldiers, giving them hope of a brighter future.

Our Fast and Simple Car Donation Process
Donating a car to our Huntington, Long Island car donations program is pretty easy. We guarantee a fast and simple car donation process.
You can start the process by filling out our online donation form or calling us at 877-594-5822. Tell us your personal contact details and your vehicleâ€™s year, make, and model. Tell us your preferred time, date, and location for your vehicle pickup.
Weâ€™ll arrange for a licensed towing company in your area to haul your car away for free. During the pick-up, the towing company will give you a towing receipt that will release you from all liabilities on the car youâ€™re donating from that point onward. This will allow you to de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage, thus saving you money.
We will send your donated car to an auction house. Within 30 days after the sale of your vehicle, we will send you by mail your 100 percent tax-deductible sale receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return. If your vehicle was sold for less than $500, you are eligible to take a deduction of the fair market value of the vehicle up to $500 without further documentation. If your vehicle was sold for more than $500, you can claim that amount as your tax deduction.
