‘Tis the Season for Giving, But Do You Know What The Greatest Gift of All Is?


Holiday season is officially here...and you know what the means: time to start shopping for all those gifts on your list! Presents for your closest family and friends. Trinkets for your coworkers, clients and colleagues. There are so many people to consider when diving into spirit of holiday giving. But what about something special for the ones who have sacrificed so much for us? Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio has the perfect way to give back: an automobile donation. Here are 5 reasons why you should donate your car in Columbus this season as the perfect holiday gift.

A New Home for Your Old Car

Does your family have more than one car? Does that second vehicle mostly just take up space in the garage? Why not put it to better use and donate your car to Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio? When you donate your car in Columbus, you support programs in your community in ways you never thought possible.

A Positive Impact on Veterans and Families in Need

The holiday season is a difficult time. Many out-of-work veterans suffer from mental illness and addiction. And all too many are homeless. Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio offers programs to assist veterans in the restoration of their self-sufficiency. The money from your auto donation directly supports these services and goes a long way in providing treatment, counseling, and housing for veterans in need. Additionally, Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio assists families and children in communities all over Ohio. They offer services like crisis prevention, early intervention and other long-term services.

A Little Something for You

Donating your automobile not only benefits your community, but it helps you out in a few ways, as well. For starters, your donation could earn you a sizeable tax deduction (that will serve you well for next year’s holiday shopping). And then there’s the gift that money can’t buy: happiness. Studies suggest that making charitable donations can actually lift a person’s spirits! So not only will you bring joy to the many people in need, but you can also enjoy a little extra cheer for yourself this holiday season.
