While donating time or money may not be possible you can still help by donating a car to your local chapter. The car doesn’t have to be in the best condition, it doesn’t even have to run, they will still accept your vehicle donation. The vehicle donation program helps the American Red Cross get the emergency materials needed in dire situations and be able to respond at all. The proceeds from your vehicle donation will go towards funding for these materials as well as emergency preparedness which can help minimize the impact of a severe natural disaster. Every form of donation is appreciated and will be put towards good use. When you donate a car you are helping the American Red Cross provide people with emergency essentials including blankets, food, water and shelter if necessary. So don’t wait and keep that old car you aren’t even using anymore donate your car to charity and help your community stay safe and prepared.
