Give Back to our Nation's Heroes Through Rochester, New York Car Donations

What if we told you that you could effortlessly get your hands off your old and unwanted car while you give back to our nation’s heroes? If you’re interested in making a lasting impact on the lives of our needy veterans who made huge sacrifices and risked their lives for the love of our country, consider taking part in Veteran Car Donations’ Rochester, New York car donations program.

The Real Story Behind Most Transitioning Veterans

Our former military personnel who are transitioning to civilian life will inevitably go through the challenging process of adjusting to the work, culture, language, and priorities in the civilian sector. As they jump into unknown territory, many of them will have to deal with various service-related physical and mental problems, inability to find stable employment, and other readjustment issues. In other words, while their life in the military was demanding, the lengthy process involved in their return to “normalcy” is even more difficult.

Although the government has been going to great lengths to meet the needs of transitioning veterans, there remains a yawning gap of service that needs to be filled. For this reason, Veteran Car Donations operates vehicle donation programs for the benefit of our veterans on behalf of IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that we have partnered with. By auctioning off the vehicles donated to us, we are able to generate funds for our charity partners. The aid we give helps them sustain their delivery of various veteran-focused programs and services to their beneficiaries.

Thanks to our donors, needy veterans and their families are able to receive the following benefits:

  • Mortgage-free homes that are specially adapted for veterans with serious combat-related injuries;
  • Free mental healthcare for former troops who have been diagnosed with service-connected mental issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury;
  • Educational scholarships and tutoring support for veterans who want to pursue their college education;
  • Job training and mentoring programs for veterans who want to expand their skill sets;
  • Grief counseling and psychosocial support for the families of soldiers who were killed in action;
  • General transitioning assistance for those who recently separated from the service upon their return home from deployment;
  • Orientation programs to educate veterans and their families on the full range of benefits that are available to them.
