Give Back to Our Nationâ€™s Heroes
When you donate an old and unwanted vehicle to us at Veteran Car Donations, you wonâ€™t just rid yourself of an unwanted possession. Itâ€™s one of the simplest ways to reach out to the men and women in your city who courageously fought for our freedoms and security. Youâ€™ll be playing a crucial role in addressing their problems and improving their living conditions.
For several years now, weâ€™ve been working hard to help our troubled veterans transition into civilian life as smoothly as possible. We do our best not just to provide them with their basic needs but to also turn them into self-reliant and dignified residents of their community.
Our car donations program in Youngstown, Ohio aims to support former service members in Steel City who are faced with various challenges that prevent them from living decent and fulfilling lives.
When you donate a vehicle to us, youâ€™ll be helping many Youngstown veterans receive essential care and benefits.
Weâ€™ll auction off your donated vehicle and pass the proceeds to our nonprofit partners, helping them deliver a range of life-enriching programs and services for the benefit of needy veterans residing in the city.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Youngstown had an estimated population of 65,469 as of 2018, with 36.2% of the locals classified as persons in poverty. The city had 4,112 veterans.
Weâ€™re not sure how many of these veterans are living miserable lives, but we can surmise that theyâ€™re not few. One thing weâ€™re sure of is that once we sell your donated vehicle, the funds will help our charity partners in providing deserving veterans with various benefits, including free access to quality health care, counseling and psychotherapy services, job opportunities, housing assistance, financial aid, scholarships, and family support.
