Okeechobee, Florida Car Donations: Help Disadvantaged Folks Overcome Barriers to Employment
Are you still keeping an ancient car in your garage? Are you still trying to repair or maintain it even if it continues to give you trouble on the road despite the numerous repairs it has undergone? If you think the repairs are not worth it anymore, you can always get rid of it. However, you need to do it the right way.
Although you can always dump it in the junkyard and get a pittance for it, that certainly is not the best option for you. You would even have to spend money to pay for the towing service to bring your clunker to the junkyard. The token payment you would receive from the junkyard owner would not even be half the price of the towing fee you would have to pay. In short, you lose big time!
Reselling your beater may at first seem like a good idea. But are you up to long hours advertising your car and negotiating with prospective buyers? Also, to get a better chance of getting your car sold, you would need to make it look better, which means spending lots of precious money on car repairs, repainting, and refurbishing.
What we can highly recommend is for you to simply donate your old battered vehicle to us at Goodwill Car Donations. By giving it away to our Okeechobee, Florida car donations program, we will not only dispose of your unwanted vehicle quickly and at zero-cost to you, we will also shower you with rewards, including an equitable tax deduction, for teaming up with us.
What’s even better is that your car donation will go a long way in improving the living conditions of the men, women, and children in your city who are burdened with disabilities, lack of skills, experience or education, and other personal circumstances that pose as barriers to opportunities for employment and living a good life.
We auction off all vehicles donated to us and use the proceeds to fund the programs and services being provided by Goodwill organizations to the underprivileged residents of the area. These programs and services include:
- Job training and placement
- Job-link centers
- Beyond jobs program
- Career development and counseling
- Youth services, including high school/high-tech, youth mentoring
- School for students with developmental disabilities
- Income-sensitive housing for senior citizens and people with disabilities
- Family strengthening services
- Vehicle assistance program
These life-enhancement solutions would enable your disadvantaged fellow city residents to find suitable jobs that pay decent wages, regain their dignity, ably support themselves and their families, and achieve their goals in life. Moreover, their productivity will help in spurring the growth and progress of your community, city, and the country in general.
At the end of the day, you’ll have the privilege to claim that you did your part in making all these happen by simply donating a vehicle, which you no longer need anyway.
How Goodwill’s Car Donation Program Works
Our Okeechobee, Florida car donations process is amazingly fast, efficient, and convenient. It consists of just three simple steps:
- Reach out to us.
Fill out our online donation form, which you can find on all pages of our website, including this page. A faster option is to give us a call at our toll-free 24/7 hotline 866-233-8586. Tell us your contact information and key details about the vehicle you’re donating such as its make, model, year, VIN, title availability, and general running condition.
- We pick up your vehicle.
We give you the option to schedule your vehicle pickup based on the date, time, and place most convenient to you. If you want us to pick up your donation in the quickest time possible, we can do it within 24 to 48 hours after your call. Take note that we can pick up your vehicle even if it’s located outside your property.
- Receive your tax deduction receipt.
We’ll send your vehicle to one of the best auction houses in the city. Within 30 days after your vehicle is sold, you’ll receive from us by mail your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt. The final selling price of your vehicle will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal income tax return for the incoming tax-filing season.
