Good Time on the Fourth of July | Goodwill Car Donations

The Fourth of July is one of the most anticipated holidays in the United States. It’s the celebration of the time when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, following the struggles and sacrifices of the American Revolution.

Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States. On this day, parades, fireworks, and concerts are held to commemorate this major milestone in our nation’s history.

You can celebrate our Independence Day in many different ways. Goodwill Car Donations shares some suggestions on how you can have fun while showing your patriotism on the Fourth of July.

Kids will have fun creating artwork inspired by the American flag. While they’re doing their projects, you can share tidbits of information about why the holiday is a significant milestone in our nation’s history.

You and your family can also watch documentaries about little-known historical facts about our country.

Celebrate Independence Day By Reaching Out to Your Disadvantaged Fellow Americans

Our Founding Fathers envisioned a free nation where citizens enjoy equal opportunities. Unfortunately, that remains a pipe dream, particularly for disadvantaged Americans who are struggling to break free from poverty. They include the men and women in your community who are burdened with disabilities, lack education, job experience, or essential skills, and other limiting personal issues, such as having criminal records or a welfare mentality.

On Independence Day, how about reaching out to your underprivileged fellow Americans by helping provide them with opportunities to achieve financial independence so they can live productive and fulfilling lives?

You can do that by simply donating an unwanted vehicle to us at Goodwill Car Donations.

Our team will put your vehicle up for auction and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits cater to disadvantaged Americans, using the funding we give to provide them with job and livelihood opportunities, skills training, vocational services, scholarships, financial aid, disability benefits, family support, and other types of vital support services.

While helping the disadvantaged members of your community with your car donation, you’ll also get outstanding rewards yourself. These include getting our fast and free professional towing service at a date and place of your choice anywhere in the country.

Your gift will also entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

Moreover, your donation will allow you to savor the satisfaction of serving your community by helping empower your less fortunate neighbors through work and learning.

We take nearly all types of vehicles, including those that are no longer in good shape. Head over to this page to get a list of the types of vehicles acceptable to us.
