Over 200,000 veterans will sleep on our nation's streets tonight. However, we believe that no one who put his or her life on the line to defend our country should ever have to face the devastating reality of being homeless. They sacrificed so much for us, so we here at Cars Helping Veterans feel like it is the least we can do to give back to our country's heroes.
Our story began in 2010 in Detroit, Michigan: The motor-city capital of America. A place with much to offer but also much in need. This inspired our cause to see vehicles as more than just a means of transportation. Our country is littered with vehicles that are not in use for one reason or another. Your unwanted vehicle is utilized for our US Veterans, and we make it easy for you to do so.
To create an impact, we became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and focused on making strong connections with the long-standing organizations that have made a difference with our service men and women. With the proceeds from your donated car, we will support groups like the Purple Heart, Soldiers Angels, Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and Intrepid Fallen Heroes. We even make it possible for you to choose which charity you want the proceeds to go to.
Our primary vision is to make donating your car as easy as possible so we can start helping veterans faster. We are a modern organization that was built online to maximize efficiency. Our Donation form is quick and simple for anyone to use. After you’re done, we will take care of the rest and you’ll receive your tax deductible donation receipt.
