Absolutely, yes! Car donations help food banks with thousands of donation dollars each year! One foodbank gives some feedback what this is like for their charity…
Fighting hunger one car at a time
Every vehicle donation counts. Every one! And last week the Calgary Food Bank reached out to talk about just how much car donations help food banks:
“Thanks to generous community members like you, the lives of over 290,000 individuals were improved last year.”
Car, truck, van, SUV, and motorcycle donors like you helped raise thousands of donation dollars for the charity!
“Your support helps provide fresh, healthy foods…To have community members join us in ensuring no Calgarian goes hungry is truly humbling. We are incredibly grateful and fortunate to have you as part of our team!”
Car donations help food banks by turning your clunker into canned goods!
So, how does this work exactly? Your local food bank is accepting all kinds of donations! Canned goods, hygiene products, fresh foods, breads. Visit the food insecurity charity in your town to find their wish list.
Cool, hard cash is always welcome. Your local volunteers and charity staff can stretch food dollars by making bulk purchases. Giving money goes a long, long way to helping combat hunger!
And then there’s giving in other ways. This is where we come in: your donated vehicle will be transformed into a monetary gift! We do this by either re-selling or recycling your unused/unwanted vehicle. The net proceeds from the sale are sent to your charity of choice. There is no cost to them for this care! Free for you; free for your charity!
You are also invited to contact and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! From there, you’ll be able to keep up to date on our program as well as see posts that showcase our amazing donors and charities across the country!
