Donated Ford Fills the Shelves

A loaf of bread, a packet of spaghetti, and a flat of canned soup. How much does it cost to feed a family these days? Food insecurity is on the rise. You’ll be amazed on the impact one donated Ford Mustang can have on filling hungry bellies!

That rough-and-ready Ford might be worth more than you know!

Have you been following the auto industry news this past year? It has been all over the map! Twelve months ago vehicles, old and new, scrappy and running smooth, were worth a cool mint!

Things are leveling off now. ‘Good news for buyers. ‘Less hearty news for sellers. Either way? Helpful news for charities across Canada.

Whatever your vehicle make and model, it has value to the charity you love. Ford, Honda, Dodge, and Toyota alike: metal on wheels and powered by an engine? Its net worth can mean care for the sick, help for the vulnerable, and food or shelter for those in need.

Ford Mustang donor restocks the pantry

When a car, SUV, truck, van, or motorcycle is donated through Donate a Car Canada, it’s all about the donor. Every donation is reviewed, case-by-case. Each donor has choice of charity. In fact, they can choose any Canadian charity!

Recently, one Ford Mustang donor chose their local food bank as the recipient. In fact, at the time of this writing, we are processing 6 vehicle donations for local food banks! A Dodge minivan, two Hondas, a Toyota, a Nissan, and a Suzuki are all being recycled or re-sold to help feed Canada’s food insecure.

The donation outcome for the charities? It will vary from province to province, and by process. This is another reason each vehicle donation is a stand alone. The year, make/model, mileage, and overall condition of every vehicle is examined. Location determines scrap metal values, as well as the scope of anticipated re-sale outcomes.

When a vehicle is re-sold it can earn thousands of dollars for the chosen charity. This was the case with Bette’s Ford Mustang: she raised over $6,000.00 for her charity!

If a donated vehicle is recycled, the donation outcome can vary. In some parts of Canada we see such donations in the hundreds of dollars. Not bad for a scrapper; so very good for the receiving charity!
