Although Americaâ€™s veteran population has dipped to 19.5 million from nearly 22 million in 2010, that number is evidently still too high for the government to be able to attend to the needs of many of them. The estimated number of veterans comes from the latest U.S. Censusâ€™ American Community Survey done in 2016.
Upon their return home from the wars and their subsequent discharge from the service, many of our former troops found themselves facing problems more serious than the ones they faced when they were out in the battlefields facing the enemy. These are the veterans who could not find any decent job to support themselves and their families and who are unable to receive the full benefits due them from the government.
TheÂ transition to civilian lifeÂ is even worse for those who came home with physical disabilities as a result of the serious injuries they suffered on the battlefields. Some also came home suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and depression.
Unable to find support, a number of these veterans have sunken deep into poverty and forced out of their homes to join Americaâ€™s population of homeless people. You can find them on the streets and sidewalks, begging passersby for food, money, clothes, medicine, and shelter.
Why We Owe Our Veterans a Debt of Gratitude
We owe these unfortunate fellow Americans an immense debt of gratitude for theÂ sacrifices they did for the sake of our nation. They fought for us and helped preserve our freedom and protect our security during the time they were sent in harmâ€™s way to confront Americaâ€™s enemies in some foreign war zones. Thus, it is only right for us to extend them as much assistance as possible.
One thing is clear: We can do something to ease the suffering of our veterans, particularly those who are living here in The Woodlands, Texas. By donating your old and unwanted vehicle to us at Veteran Car Donations through our The Woodlands, Texas car donations program, you can bring much-needed assistance to the poor veterans in your community.

How We Ease the Suffering of Our Veterans
We at Veteran Car Donations sell at auction the vehicles donated to our The Woodlands, Texas car donations for veterans program. We then turn the proceeds over to our trustedÂ nonprofit organizationÂ partners. These are Homes For Our Troops, Soldiersâ€™ Angels, Serving Veterans, Inc., and Heroes on the Water. These non-profits use the funding that came from you to provide the following services to our veterans:
- Mental and physical healthcare
- Transitioning assistance for newly discharged troops
- Building mortgage-free, specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans
- Job training programs for veterans with no civilian job qualifications
- Grief counseling sessions to the spouses and families of those who were killed in action
- Educating veterans on the benefits theyâ€™re eligible to get and how to get them
How to Donate a Car in The Woodlands, Texas
If you want to donate a vehicle to veterans, the process we have devised is quick and easy for the convenience of our donors. There are only three easy steps to get your car towed for free:
Visit our website and fill out ourÂ online vehicle donation form. You may also contact us at 877-594-5822. 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.
After verifying the information you provided, we will make arrangements with a professional tow company in your area to pick up your car. We will 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 tow receipt. This document releases you from all liability on the car you just donated from that point onward. You can now de-register your vehicle, 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.
We sell your car at auction. Within 30 days after the sale of your car, we will mail you your 100 percent tax-deductible sales 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 for the next tax-filing season.
