Show That You Care for Our Heroes, Our Veterans
Choosing to donate a vehicle to veterans in Galveston, Texas is a fitting action to take to show that we care for and value our veterans, our heroes who fought for us to protect our rights and our nationâ€™s security.
You might thinking that youâ€™re just disposing of an old and unwanted car, but to us inÂ Veteran Car Donations, every vehicle donated to us is an expression of compassion and desire to impact the lives of our struggling veterans.
Based on the United States Census Bureau, as of July 2016,Â the areaÂ had a population of 50,550, with 3,301of them listed as veterans.
Even though our discharged soldiers are no longer facing enemies with guns in some foreign battlegrounds, they face â€śbattlesâ€ť in their own homeland as they try to transition to civilian life. Because of the â€śbaggageâ€ť they brought along from their tours of duty overseas â€“Â physical injuries, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, depressionÂ â€“ they canâ€™t find jobs no matter how hard they try. Even those with no physical or mental issues are also unable to find employment because of other factors like insufficient education and lack of civilian job experience.
With no source of income and with government benefits due them too long in coming and too little to make a significant difference in their lives, these veterans quickly get mired in poverty, ending up in the breadline or out there in streets, begging passersby for food, clothing, medical care, and shelter.

How to Donate Your Car
How can I donate my car to veterans? You can start your Galveston, Texas, donation process by filling out ourÂ online donation formÂ or calling us at 877-594-5822. Tell us your personal contact details and your vehicleâ€™s year, make, and model. Tell us also your preferred time, date, and location for your vehicle pickup.
Weâ€™ll arrange for a licensed towing company in your area to haul your car away for free. During the pick-up, you will receive a towing receipt that will release you from all liabilities on the car youâ€™re donating from that point onward. This will allow you to de-register your vehicle, dispose of your license plates properly, and cancel your insurance coverage, thus saving you money.
We will send your donated car to an auction house. Within 30 days after we sold your vehicle, we will send you by mail your 100 percent tax-deductible sale receipt, indicating your donated vehicleâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of yourÂ tax deductionÂ claim when you file your itemized federal tax return. If your vehicle sells 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, our letter will notify you of the final selling price. You can claim that price as your tax deduction.
