Red Cross kicks off vehicle donation drive
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The American Red Cross West Virginia Region has launched its "Don't Park It! Donate It!" vehicle donation program that converts unneeded vehicles into Red Cross donations to help those in need. The program will run through Dec. 31.
The program offers an easy donation process with convenient, free pickup and towing and a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles. The program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, tractors, farm equipment and more, in any condition -- even salvaged.
The proceeds received from the sale of donated vehicles provide help for the Red Cross to carry out its humanitarian mission. Vehicles donated through the program will not be used or distributed by the Red Cross, but will be sold by Insurance Auto Auctions.
To donate a vehicle, contact the Red Cross online at www.redcross.org/cardonation or call 855-927-2227 to make arrangements. Representatives will pick up the vehicle at no cost at a time convenient for the donor. They will sell the vehicle and provide the donor a tax receipt on behalf of the Red Cross.
Contact your tax professional for details about tax deductions for vehicle donations.
