Boat Donation Pensacola, Florida: Uplift Lives While Getting Rid of Your Boat Woes

Did you know that your old boat that has become too costly for you to maintain can be a vital source of support for Americans who are struggling with poverty and unemployment? If you’re thinking of getting rid of your boat, consider handing it over to us at Goodwill Car Donations.

We are among the top humanitarian organizations in the country. For more than a hundred years already, Goodwill has been serving disadvantaged Americans and their families. These are the men and women in various communities around the country who are burdened by their disabilities, lack of education, skills, and job experience, and other personal issues. These hindrances make it most difficult for them to find decent and stable sources of income.

It is our mission to ensure that they get to live fulfilling and productive lives despite the unfortunate circumstances they find themselves in.


We Seek to Make Lives Better in Pensacola, Florida

Out of 52,334 residents in the City of Five Flags, 9,157 of them reported income levels below the poverty line.

Do you want to help your fellow Floridians get stable jobs to improve their living conditions? Your no-longer-needed boat is the solution!

When you hand it over to our Pensacola, Florida boat donation program, we’ll sell it through an auction and use the proceeds to help fund the life-changing programs of the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofits provide their beneficiaries with:

  • Job training and placement
