The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada was the recent recipient of a car donation.
Canada’s seniors are a wisely compassionate example of how to turn a tough life change into adaptive support.
Senior donates for Multiple Sclerosis charity
When it comes time to surrender a driver’s license, so many effects ripple out into a senior’s lifestyle. The loss of independence and control over scheduling and mobility are a major life change.
When it was time for her to make that major adjustment, one of our 96 year old donors opted to gift the Multiple Sclerosis Society .
Cecilia purchased her Mercury Grand Marquis in 1989.
At the time she was told that it had never seen snow, spending the winters in Florida. She kept it in immaculate condition.
When it came to let the car go, Cecilia wished the proceeds from the sale of the car to benefit others.
And that they did! That faithful ol’ Marquis rolled up from its underground parking stall and on to our cooperating auction house. The Multiple Sclerosis Society received a hearty gift of $1861.25 in Cecilia’s name.
We evaluate each vehicle donation, case-by-case. An older model vehicle may well be a lightly driven and well-maintained car. We will always give attention to the details provided by donors. We ensure that we assign the process that will best serve in your region of the country. This is especially true where we know that a senior may have been the one to have their hands on the wheel.
What this means for you
Your car, truck, van, SUV, or motorcycle donation can help any Canadian charity! The tow is free. Your charity of choice will receive the net proceeds from the processing of the vehicle. And you will always receive a tax receipt for your gift!
