At Charity Cars, it is our mission “to engage in activities that will uplift humanity.” Our primary means for doing this is through automobile donations from people such as yourself. Your automobile donations are picked up, running or not, at a place and time convenient to you from one of our affiliated towing companies. We can pick up anywhere in the United States and can typically arrange pick up within 24 hours of your initial call to us.
We screen our applicants looking for people to whom the gift of a car or truck can make the most positive impact. We help the working poor, some of whom could take a job, or a better paying job, if they could only get a reliable means of transportation to and from the workplace. In rural areas, for example, public transportation may not be sufficient if it even exists. Sometimes the work itself being pursued requires an automobile.
For others, automobile donations mean the ability to make many necessary medical appointments for themselves or a loved one. Some of our applicants are looking for a means to transition from government or charitable assistance to a more independent and productive life, or they are trying to rebuild their lives after a natural disaster or domestic violence. We’re in the business of helping others and providing a hassle-free and enjoyable means for people like yourself to partner with us to strengthen your community and lend a hand to your neighbors in need.
Since 1996, we’ve taken automobile donations in this way to help the needy. Our efforts have been covered on the Good Morning America program on ABC as well as the CBS News and Montel show. People magazine covered our charitable efforts in an article, and we are very proud to have been honored with the Walt Disney World Outstanding Community Service award.
