In America, many of our veterans wait for approximately 125 days before their benefits claims are processed at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Worse, after waiting for such a long time, many of their claims are either denied or returned for one reason or another. You can just imagine the frustration and anguish of a veteran who is jobless, with no source of income, and with no savings to fall back on when he finds out that he wonâ€™t be getting any assistance from the government.
Even worse are those veterans with service-related physical disabilities and mental issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and depression who have been left on their own to survive without government assistance.
Among our countryâ€™s population sectors, our veteran community is among those that have a large percentage of its members suffering from joblessness, poverty, divorce, homelessness, and depression. This is a very embarrassing situation for our country, especially considering that our veterans are generally considered as our nationâ€™s heroes for risking their lives and making enormous sacrifices in pursuit of their mission to defend our rights and protect our nationâ€™s security.
Although the government is striving hard to provide more support services to more veterans, the sheer number of our former troops and the insufficient funding for them make it difficult to fully address the issue.
This is the reason why we created Veteran Car Donations. We are an organization that works tirelessly to help gather funds to support our nonprofit organization partners in delivering various free services to our veterans. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our generous donors.
How Your Car Donation Will Benefit Our Veterans
With your Apex, North Carolina car donations, you would be helping us and our charity partners — Homes For Our Troops, Soldiersâ€™ Angels, Serving Veterans, Inc., and Heroes on the Water â€“ in our mission to look after the welfare of our countryâ€™s heroes. The proceeds from the sale of donated vehicles will enable our nonprofit partners to sustain and even expand the services that theyâ€™ve been providing to our needy veterans. These services include:
- Mental and physical healthcare
- Transitioning assistance after their return home from overseas deployment;
- Building mortgage-free and specially adapted homes for those who are homeless and those who suffered severe service-related injuries and are now handicapped, respectively;
- Job training programs for those who are jobless
- Grief counseling sessions to the spouses and families of those soldiers who were killed in action
- Educating veterans of the government benefits they are qualified to get and how to get them.
Our Fast and Simple Car Donation Process
We purposely made our Apex, North Carolina car donations process to be quick and easy for the convenience of our valued donors so they could save time and effort. There are only three easy steps to get your car towed at zero cost to you:
- Step 1: Visit our website and fill out the online vehicle donation form.
You may also contact us at 877-594-5822. One of our friendly donation specialists will assist you throughout the car donation process. We will ask for your vehicleâ€™s information such as its make and model, your preferred time and date for pick-up, and your vehicleâ€™s pick-up location.
- Step 2: Weâ€™ll assign an affiliate tow company in your area to pick up your car.
We will be the one to pay the towing fee. The tow company will then pick up your vehicle on the date, time, and place you specified. The towing company will give you a donation receipt showing that your vehicle was picked up. This releases you from all liabilities on the car you donated from that point onward You can now de-register it, dispose of its license plates properly, and cancel its insurance coverage. That receipt also allows you to take the minimum tax deduction without further paperwork.
- Step 3: We sell your car at auction and then send your tax deduction via postal mail.
Within 30 days after the sale of your car, we will mail you the 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt of your donated car, which shows its final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return for the next tax-filing season.
