Cars for Homes: Donor and affiliate testimonials

Featured donor story: how a food truck gives back

Your vehicle donation to Cars for Homes impacts families in need of decent, affordable housing.

Testimonials from donors:

“You guys did a great job with my car donation. The process took less time than getting my morning coffee! Helping a charity felt great and the tax deduction ended up being bigger than I expected.” 

“The process of donating was easy: a visit to the website, a simple form, a couple of phone calls to helpful, responsive people. The tow truck was prompt. The paperwork was easy. The follow-up has been very reliable. Habitat is all the right things: people joining with people to create homes, as well as communities, pride, confidence and caring. We are so grateful that our old car could provide a little bit of help to that wonderful process.”

“I was moving and needed to get rid of an old car that had been sitting in my driveway forever. A friend suggested I donate my car to charity. I completed the form online and before I knew it a towing company arrived to pick up my car.”

“It was a pleasure to be able to participate in Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program. My 86-year-old mother who recently passed away had requested I donate her beloved Jaguar to Habitat when she ‘flew away,’ as she called it. A longtime supporter of Habitat and other service programs, I was happy to carry out her wishes. My mom was the type of person who believed each citizen has a responsibility to give back to their communities. She taught me to do the same.”

“I could not believe I could donate my junk car and help a charity. It had been in an accident but you still towed my car away for free, I even qualified for a tax deduction. Thanks!”
