Car Donation Long Beach, California: Help the Needy by Getting Rid of Your Clunker

Are you sick and tired of seeing your old auto take up space and gather dust in your garage? If you don’t know what to do with it because towing is quite expensive and reselling it looks like more trouble than it’s worth, here’s an option that’s a sure winner: Simply donate that clunker to us at Goodwill Car Donations through our Long Beach, California car donation program.

This will surely relieve you of the headache of wondering what to do with your unwanted car. At the same time, your charitable contribution will go a long way in improving the living conditions of the disadvantaged folks in your area, which will consequently contribute to the growth and progress of your city.

How Long Beach Will Benefit from Your Car Donation

Long Beach is a flourishing city in the state of California. It hosts the second busiest container port in the United States and is among the world’s largest shipping ports. The city also sits on an oilfield.

Nevertheless, not all the people in the city have fat wallets. Out of its estimated population of 462,628 as of July 2019, 18.1% were categorized as persons in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Many of these Californians are those who are suffering from disabilities, lack of skills, job experience, or education, welfare dependency, and other hindrances that prevent them from living self-sufficient and productive lives.

When you donate your old car to our cause, we can use that vehicle to provide much-needed assistance to your city’s less fortunate residents.

We will auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to support the critical programs and services of the Goodwill organization serving your area. This nonprofit provides its beneficiaries with:

  • Job placements
  • Career workshops
  • On-site and virtual skills training
  • Youth services and mentoring
  • Education opportunities for youth with developmental disabilities
  • Family strengthening services
  • Other critical community-building support services

With all these services that your car donation can help sustain, you will be able to uplift the lives of the needy people in your area by enabling them to harness their potential through the power of work and learning.

Reap These Benefits from Your Long Beach, CA Car Donation

The disadvantaged residents of your city will not be the only ones who’ll benefit from your donation. You’ll also be a beneficiary of your own donation. Here are some of the perks you stand to receive when you make a Goodwill car donation in Long Beach, CA:

  • We’ll make sure you get the highest possible tax deduction for your donation. We’ll do this by making sure your donated vehicle is sold at its highest possible price. Take note that the selling price of your donated vehicle serves as the basis for the amount of tax write-off you can claim.
