The American Red Cross are an amazing charity set up to help members of society in all areas. No matter of creed, race, or location. They are always looking for donations to be able to help those in need, and this article contains info to tell you how you can help if you donate a vehicle to them.
So, if you have a car that is parked dormant and hasn’t been used for a very long time, then donate it! You can turn your car into a donation and offer help for a great cause. It is very easy to donate your old vehicle (or new one if you are feeling particularly generous!); all you need to do is contact the Red Cross via their contact info found here http://www.redcross.org/support/donating the choice is yours. The form will ask you to provide information about the make and model of the car and of course the year it was manufactured.
If you are worried about having to arrange for the car to be dropped off somewhere, there is no need. The Red Cross will even arrange for a member of staff to come out and collect your vehicle, taking it off your hands, and starting the first step toward your good cause. It will cost you absolutely nothing. The car will then be put up for sale, at the highest possible price; to prove that the donation was legitimate they will even send you information about the sale, and a tax receipt.
So that this program can run successfully, they have partnered with Insurance Auto Auctions, and they will literally take any car, in any condition. It doesn’t matter if the car moves or not, it can still be transformed into a donation to help the needy. They take all forms of vehicles, farm equipment, SUVs, boats, trucks, vans, RVs, motorbikes, jet skis, tractors, and a lot more besides!
Your donation will help towards eliminating suffering of your fellow human beings, and it is a great way for you to be able to do your bit in society to help those in need.
