Put a Homeless Family on the Road to Success

April 25, 2013

A New Life for your Car = A New Start for a Family in Need

Your used car could provide a critical lifeline for a homeless family journeying toward self-sufficiency. 

car-donation-flentall4Providing safe, reliable cars for our families, mostly single moms, is one of our biggest challenges.  Each family needs a car to get to work, take kids to school activities and doctor appointments, go shopping, etc.  Many of our moms also attend evening classes.   
 
We are in desperate need of donated cars right now.  Would you consider donating yours?  Donating your older model car is a great idea because:
 
– You can take the retail value of your donated car as a tax deduction since the car will be given to a Bridge family.  If you donate your car to an agency that sells the car, your deduction is only equal to the selling price, which is much lower than retail value.

– It’s easier to donate your car than to sell it on your own.

– You’ll feel great knowing you’ve helped a local homeless family!

If you’d like to donate your car or have questions, please contact me at karen.stewart@bridgecommunities.org or (630) 545-0610 ext. 17.
