Donations for Vets!

Hey neighbors!

It is that time of year when everyone starts to think about giving, whether is is giving gifts to friends and family or making a charitable donation to one of the local charities.  This is the season when you see people outside many of the stores collecting money for one group or another.  As a family we try to be careful when and where we give donations.  I want to know that we are giving where it is actually needed and where the people who need it are actually receiving it.  You hear too many times about money being used inappropriately or not going to the people they claim it is for.  Anyway, have any of you heard about donating cars for vets?  I just recently heard about them and it sounds like a good idea.


I think this is an excellent solution for getting rid of your old car and helping someone at the same time!  You donate your car that you have decided you no longer need.  The car is sold for the best price possible and then the proceeds are used to help veterans.  What a tremendous use of your old vehicle! Instead of having it sent to the junkyard, put it to a good use. Donate it to an organization that will use it to benefit our veterans. Our vets deserve our support.  They gave so much for us we should give something back when we can.

On a side note, be sure you check out the organization you are considering donating to and verify that your funds are actually going to the vets, not being shuffled off elsewhere or being used to pay the organizational employees.  It is so easy to make an impulsive, spur of the moment decision.  So when you decide to give to a charity take a little time and research the group you are giving to.

Have you given to any charities this year?  How do you decide what charities to donate to?

We donate locally, we quit donating to the organizations that call on the phone, my thoughts are if they hire a professional fundraiser to make the calls, the charity will not get 100% of our donation.. which is why we donate locally. Our donations locally are for our Food Share Ministry that we volunteer and give a set amount each month too, our local VFW posts bulletins for vets and families that are in need of an item.. I have seen the flyers for the "Cars for Vet" on the board. It is a nice program and will keep it in mind if I ever have a vehicle to donate.
