Even after returning home from the battlefields abroad upon the completion of their combat and peacekeeping missions abroad, our soldiers still face tough challenges. To many, the challenges are even much more difficult to hurdle than those they experienced during combat missions.
These soldiers have subsequently been discharged from the service and are now facing great difficulty in transitioning to civilian life. For many of these new veterans, the main problem is their inability to find jobs that could provide for their needs and those of their family. They rely on government benefits, but sadly, these are often delayed for months. Some do not get to receive benefits at all after their applications for these benefits get rejected for one reason or another.
Many of them canâ€™t find suitable jobs because they lack educational requirements, having enlisted in the military when they were still in high school and as such had no college background. They also canâ€™t find use for their military background in a civilian society.
Worse, some incurred service-related physical disabilities and mental disorders such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and depression.
Our Veterans Badly Need Help
Some of these veterans have fallen deep into poverty and have become homeless in their own country, forced to beg passersby on the sidewalks for food, money, clothes, medicine, and shelter.
These veterans, these heroes who fought to preserve our countryâ€™s liberties and protect our security, now badly need assistance just to survive.
Thatâ€™s the reason why we at Veteran Car Donations are intensifying our fund-generation campaign all over the country for the benefit of our veterans. Our car donation programs are everywhere â€“ in big cities and small towns like here in Southold, Long Island, New York. We want to exhaust all means to provide more assistance to our veterans.
By donating your old unwanted cars to Southold, Long Island car donations program, you will be able to help our impoverished veterans get back on their feet and hopefully live normal and productive lives.
Donating a Car to Us Is Easy
We devised our Southold, Long Island car donations process to be as quick and easy as possible.
- First, get in touch with us.
Call us at 877-594-5822 or go online and fill out our online donation form. We will need information like the year, make and model of your car, its overall condition, mileage and of course your contact details.Â If you can upload a photo of the vehicle youâ€™re donating, so much the better!
- Schedule your free towing.
We will make an arrangement with a licensed towing company in your area to pick up your car at your convenience. The cost of the towing service is on us, and you donâ€™t even have to be there during the pickup. The towing company will give you a donation or tow receipt showing that your vehicle was picked up. This releases you from all liability from that point forward. You can now de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage. That receipt also allows you to take the minimum tax deduction without further paperwork.
- Receive your tax-deductible sale receipt.
Wait for your 100-percent tax-deductible sale receipt. We will mail this to you within days after the sale of your car at auction. The receipt will indicate 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 the exact amount as your tax deduction.
