Car Donations Are An Ideal Way of Contributing To Charity

This is the time of year where people are giving back to the communities they live in. Whether they donate a new toy to a toy drive, donate canned goods to a food shelf, or serve dinner at a soup kitchen, they are making a difference. However, one of the biggest ways you can give back is through car donation. Car Donations are an ideal way of contributing to charity and here’s why.

Car donations are a wonderful way to do something useful with that old car you”ve had sitting in your backyard for what may seem like an eternity. It’s hard to know what to do with an older vehicle. Who really wants it? Do you try to sell it? What will you get out of it? Will it require added expense to fix it up before you can sell it? Or, will you have to pay to just have it towed out of your sight? Donating your car to a charity solves all those problems for you with comparative ease.

Typical end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are gross polluters. Cars over 13 years old create 75 percent of all the pollution produced by automobiles. Not only does recycling your vehicle help the environment, it also motivates the production of thousands of other goods—everything from new cars to bridges, elevators, even garden mulch!

Cars are one of the most recycled products in the U.S. Each year, the steel industry recycles more than 14 million tons of steel – or, the equivalent of 13 million cars. Recycling steel uses about 75 percent less energy than producing new steel, so recycling ELVs saves about 85 million barrels of oil that would otherwise be used in the production of new steel. Furthermore, steel is one of the few materials that can be recycled repeatedly without loss of quality or strength.

2015 is coming to an end, and it’s a great time for getting rid of the old and bringing in the new. This is the perfect time to get rid of an old car, running or not, that takes up space in your driveway or garage. Maybe you have been meaning to sell it or trade it in, but why bother when you can have somebody else do all the work for you, while giving the car to a great cause?
