Fort Worth, Texas Car Donations: Our Impoverished Vets Badly Need Assistance
Our nonprofit organization has partnered with theÂ leading military and veteran non-profit organizationsÂ to provide assistance to our veterans, including those in Fort Worth, Texas, who are having great difficulty in transitioning to civilian life.
Over the years, the United States government has been spending millions of dollars to help veterans after their retirement. But despite this, thousands of our retired troops are still languishing in poverty and badly need assistance.

- About 20 percent of Americans who commit suicide every year are veterans.
- Some 3.6 million veterans have physical disabilities.
- Veterans comprise 10 percent of Americaâ€™s adult homeless population.
