AutoBay.com helps ‘drive’ people to Habitat for Humanity’s vehicle donation program
AMERICUS, Ga. (March 13, 2006) — AutoBay.com, the new online shop for automotive listings and online vehicle searching on the Internet, is helping expand awareness of how people can help eliminate poverty housing by donating vehicles to Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for HomesTM program.
AutoBay's vertical search delivers results based on a user's input – giving the user tools to find and locate their vehicle of choice on the www.autobay.com Web site. AutoBay.com funnels search results direct from independent and syndicated Web sites, including local and national dealers, distributors and various listing sites.
Along with vehicle listings from major dealer groups, auctions, newspapers, classified sites, and specialty-niche sites, AutoBay.com provides information about the opportunity to donate vehicles to help Habitat for Humanity affiliates build homes in partnership with low-income families.
Monte Spence, an AutoBay.com managing partner, said, “This is a great opportunity for us show our support of such a worthy cause. We want to do more to help families in need, and we are happy to provide marketing support to aid Habitat for Humanity.”
Habitat for Humanity's work is accomplished at the local level by affiliates that bring volunteers together with families in need of housing to build homes, hope and community. Cars for HomesTM accepts donated cars, boats, RVs and other vehicles that are then sold to generate funds that benefit the affiliate and community where the donor lives.
“The Internet consistently generates a significant proportion of the vehicle donations offered to Habitat for Humanity each month,” said Marcia Rundle, director of Cars for HomesTM. “Autobay.com’s support helps Cars for Homes™ inform individuals who are searching for a new car how they can donate their used vehicle to support the mission of Habitat.”
