Donations for Veterans

Hey neighbors!

Have any of you ever made a specific donation for veterans?  Have you heard of people donating cars for veterans?  I have never done this, but I can see where it would be a great idea!

Many times in our throwaway nation, we don't even consider donating our older items to someone who might need them.  More often than not when we decide to get rid of something we either throw it away or sell it if it is worth anything.  Now, don't think I am any different than you.  Normally we sell if we can otherwise it goes in the trash.  We do occasionally take boxes of clothing or toys to a donation center.  We have occasionally donated items to a family in need, but I have to honestly say I have never considered donating larger items.

There is an organization that accepts donated vehicles and then uses them to raise money for vets.  You can call or email them for more information.  They will come pick the vehicle up if necessary.  You will receive a receipt for the donation of your auto and they will help the vets with the money from the sale of the auto.  They really make it easy for you.  Call and set up a pick up date.  They will pick the vehicle up and you receive a receipt for the fair market value.  If you can't find your title they will even work on contacting the DMV for you to find the title.  Once the vehicle is sold the money goes to charities for vets that they work with.  They take vehicles in all kinds of condition.  So next time you are thinking about finding a new home for your car, consider donating to an organization that helps vets.

So neighbors, have any of you ever donated a vehicle or large item to an organization like this?  How did it go?  It is always best if you are going to donate to just check the company out before donating.  You want the organization you are donating to to give as much as possible to those you are trying to help.

Thanks for visiting At the Fence!  I look forward to seeing you again soon!
