|CHARLESTON, WV - The American Red Cross West Virginia Region is launching a vehicle donation program from November 15th to December 31st, 2013 that converts unneeded vehicles into Red Cross donations to help those in need.|
"People may think their old vehicle is worthless but the donation could be priceless to someone in need of Red Cross services in our community," said Erica Mani, CEO of the WV Region. "This program turns clunkers into compassion and care."
The program offers an easy donation process with convenient, free pick-up and towing and a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles. The program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, tractors, farm equipment and more, in any condition - even salvaged.
The program provides individuals with an opportunity to easily dispose of a vehicle while supporting the work of the Red Cross. The proceeds received from the sale of donated vehicles provide help for the Red Cross to carry out its humanitarian mission. Vehicles donated through the program will not be used or distributed by the Red Cross. They will be sold by Insurance Auto Auctions.
The Red Cross is proud that 91 cents of every dollar goes to fulfill our humanitarian mission. The Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40% of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
To donate a vehicle, contact the Red Cross online at http://www.redcross.org/cardonation or call 1-855-927-2227 to make arrangements.
Representatives will pick up your vehicle at a time that's convenient for you at no cost. They will then sell the vehicle and provide the donor a tax receipt on behalf of the Red Cross. Contact your tax professional for details about tax deductions for vehicle donations.
