Our locally based programs help millions of people a year. That’s why Volunteers of America is the best place to donate car, truck boat or RV

To you it’s an old car. Tough to sell, maybe even an eyesore. To Volunteers of America your old car represents hundreds children who won’t go hungry tonight, new life and a new job for a homeless veteran, therapy that can break the cycle of domestic abuse…and so much more. Last year tax-deductible car donations like yours helped us provide life-changing programs for 2 million people. Best of all, we do it all through locally run programs found in every area of the country. So when you donate your car or truck it’s quite likely you’ll be making an impact on a person in your community, or even your neighborhood. Local impact – it is one of the essential differences that makes Volunteers of America the best place to donate. Car, truck, boat, RV or even golf cart, we’ll pick up your unused vehicle fast and free. You’ll get the maximum tax donation and lucky people close to you get the help and hope they need. It’s a win, win, win situation.

Here are just a few of the locally based programs that make Volunteers of America the best of the charities which accept automobile donations

Why donate? Car and truck donations support community programs that reshape young lives

Volunteers of America provides high quality, innovative services for disadvantaged and disconnected children and youth. Through our caring staff and dedicated volunteers we ensure the social, emotional and academic development of young children, and empower older youth to be physically, emotionally and mentally healthy and ready to enter adulthood. Our programs provide a continuum of care and support for young people through prevention, early intervention, crisis intervention, and long-term services.

Donate car or truck and help provide emergency food, clothing and shelter for people in your area who desperately need it

Volunteers of America’s emergency services help individuals and families overcome personal challenges to lead productive, healthy lives.

Our approaches to intervention, rehabilitation and prevention work together to ensure that people in crisis don't stay that way. During emergencies, Volunteers of America addresses immediate needs, offers long-term support when necessary and educates with prevention outreach programs.

For over 115 years Volunteers of America has had a history of providing basic needs such as food and clothing. Food pantries and clothes closets can be found across the nation in various locally based Volunteers of America programs.

Our programs include community-based efforts like the Snohomish County Food Bank Distribution Center in Western Washington, which serves over 12,000 families each month, distributing over 3,000,000 pounds of food a year. Impact like this is what makes Volunteers of America the best place to donate car, truck, RV or boat.

Your charity car donation provides local homeless men, women and children with a stable foundation to build a new life.

When you donate car, truck, RV or boat you help Volunteers of America in our work to prevent and end homelessness for individuals and families. Volunteers of America reaches out to homeless people through street outreach and mobile outreach services. When we help the homeless, whether they are young people, aging veterans or families with children, we stay along side them for as long as it takes for them to be self-sufficient — providing assistance that ranges from paying their first month’s rent to offering permanent supportive housing so that people with disabilities can become stable and productive members of communities like yours.

Donate a car and help us provide real help and a powerful voice for homeless veterans nationwide, and in your community

According to the most recent statistics, 75,609 veterans are homeless on any given night and twice as many experience homelessness during a year. Right now, the number of homeless Vietnam veterans is greater than the number of service persons who died during that war. Already, veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are appearing in the homeless population.

Volunteers of America is committed to ending homelessness for those already on the street and preventing others from becoming homeless. Volunteers of America provides a wide array of well-designed and managed locally-based services to meet the specific needs of homeless veterans.

Nationally, Volunteers of America is an outspoken advocate for homeless veterans. In October 2006, the organization, along with the Corporation for Supportive Housing and the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, convened a policy leadership dialogue on the issue, producing a report, titled "Ending Homelessness Among Veterans Through Permanent Supportive Housing." Participants called on the 110th Congress to act quickly both to create more permanent supportive housing for disabled veterans and to target resources to increase income support, employment, health, and housing programs that assist all veterans.
