Give the Gift of a Car Donation to Charity

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone across the nation. While recovery is going on, the process can be slow and hard for many of us. Many wonderful charities have also been affected by shutdowns and loss of needed donations.

In the spirit of giving, a lot of people are finding ways to support and help others during this time. There are opportunities to reach out and help those in need virtually as well. At DonateACar.com, we make gifting a vehicle to charity an easy and fast way to make a significant difference.

Do You Have a Loved One Who Has Been Affected by Illness or Disease?

Consider donating an unwanted car to charity on behalf of your loved one. What better way to show your support than to help a charity which assists so many others in a similar circumstance?  Here are some popular charity picks:
