Help Out Disadvantaged People in Your Area

A great addition to your last-minute summer bucket list is to help people in need. Why wouldn’t it be? If you want to help out, you can donate a car to us at Goodwill Car Donations.

Our mission at Goodwill is to help our fellow Americans who are burdened by disabilities, lack of skills and education, poverty, and other personal circumstances that prevent them from accessing opportunities for employment and living the good, abundant, and happy life that they can only dream of.

We sell all vehicles donated to us through auction and use the proceeds to fund the critical community-based programs of Goodwill nonprofit organizations all over the United States. Through such programs, these nonprofits deliver services such as job training and placement, mentoring, career development, youth employment, disability benefits support, and other community-building solutions.

All Goodwill programs are aimed at empowering the disadvantaged men and women in our nation’s various communities by giving them the capability to overcome their limitations and use their full potential to achieve their life goals. With the set of skills and knowledge they derive from our programs, they get the opportunity to qualify for decent, good-paying jobs that can take care of their needs and those of their families.

Thanks to our car donors, these once idle and dependent individuals will eventually become self-reliant and productive members of the American workforce, contributing to the growth and progress of their community and our nation.
