I have a vehicle to donate
Do you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV or boat taking up valuable space in your driveway? Car donations support Habitat for Humanity’s local and global mission of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness and save you the time and energy of finding a buyer.
By donating a car to our vehicle donation program, you can help Habitat for Humanity of Lynchburg build houses in partnership with families in need of a hand up, not a hand out. Your donated vehicle will help us finish the homes we have in progress.
It is quick and easy to donate automobiles, trucks, boats, RV’s, motorcycles, construction equipment and other vehicles – running or not! Plus, you may be eligible for a tax deduction. (Consult your tax advisor or the IRS for details.)
To donate a car, truck, boat or RV to Cars for Homes – Habitat’s official car donation program, call 877.277.4344 toll free or visit www.carsforhomes.org and let us take care of the rest. It’s a convenient way to support Habitat for Humanity of Lynchburg and create more space in your driveway!
