What your car donation means

One in five homeless adults is a veteran. This number is so disproportionate that the number of homeless Vietnam-era veterans is even larger than the number of service persons who died during that war. At Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio, we've made it our mission to change that statistic. Here in Cleveland, we see the faces you could be helping every day. These are the veterans who served our country, but now they need a little help form you. By donating your automobile in Cleveland, you are directly affecting positive change in the lives of the individuals and communities that we serve. Donate your car, truck, boat, motorcycle or RV to receive not just a tax deduction, but the chance to change someone's life today.
