While many people continue to donate their unused vehicles every day, there’s no such thing as being too charitable. In part one of this two-part blog series, we will look at a few reasons why you should donate your car to us.

You’re Buying A New Car

One reason to consider donating your car to Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County is rather simple — you’re buying a new car! While buying a new car is a fun and exciting time for the recipient of the vehicle, it’s important to remember others who may not be so fortunate. When donating your car to the Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, you’re helping out many people in many ways. It helps families gain access to necessities like food, clothing and household items. Additionally, it helps gives people mobility to find gainful employment, as well as provide transportation to seniors who are in need of special care and assistance. You can enjoy your new car even more knowing that your old vehicle is being used to helping people in need.

It’s Not Worth The Trade In

Another reason to donate your car to a charity like Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County is tied to buying a new car. It’s common for someone purchasing a new car to trade their old car towards the purchase of the new one. While this is a great way to offset the cost of the new vehicle, in some cases, your car isn’t worth very much. Because of this, trading in your old car won’t make much of a difference in the overall price of your new car. What will make a difference, however, is donating it to charity, where your car will be put to good use by helping many people improve their lives.

You’re Not Using Your Current Car

Whether you’re fortunate to own multiple vehicles, prefer another means of transportation like biking, or simply don’t want to deal with the many responsibilities that come with owning a car, many people have perfectly operational vehicles sitting in their driveways and garages that are going unused. Letting a car sit dormant for long periods of time can lead to a variety of issues, from battery troubles to rotted-out parts. There’s no reason for you to have to deal with this inconvenience, especially if you’re not using your car. A great way to solve this is to simply donate your car. Not only will you be freed of the many responsibilities (or, in some cases, inconveniences) that come with owning and maintaining an automobile, you will also be providing a helpful service to people in need.
