More than century of helping the community

How auto auctions fulfill Volunteers of America's founding goals in Central Ohio

We have grown to become one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive human services organizations, touching the lives of more than 2 million people each year in communities across the country (including more than 20,000 in Ohio), and proving that "there are no limits to caring."

We continue the legacy of the Booths every day by responding to the ever-changing needs of homeless men, women, and families, veterans, people returning from prison, people with disabilities, the elderly, and community members searching for affordable housing. Our organization is strengthened by the commitment of hundreds of employees, volunteers, and partners working toward effecting real change.

The Booths relied on the kindness of others to help their organization grow, and today our services and programs are funded entirely by donations from neighbors like you.

Do you have a vehicle that has been sitting idly in your garage, driveway, or in a storage facility? How about a boat, RV, tractor, or motorcycle (just about anything with a motor)? We'll arrange free same-day towing, and you might even end up making more off of your vehicle as a tax-deductible donation than you would from selling it privately. Your donations will help families, children, and veterans have a happier holiday in all of the Ohio communities we serve.

Just fill out our online car donation form, call 800-862-6030 to donate over the phone, or send the clear title to 5640 W. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio, 43228.
