There's a volunteer organization that's been helping families for more than a century! "Volunteers of America" provides life-changing services for millions of people in need, through a variety of programs. They rely on contributions to help fund their work, and one of the easiest ways to give, is by donating an old vehicle, which they'll pick up with their trusty tow trucks!

William Raihl, Chief Advancement Officer for Volunteers of America talks about what your money and donations go to when you support Volunteers of America.

Last year Volunteers of America helped 2 million people in need. Here are just a few of the programs you help fund when you donate a car:


• Feed the hungry almost 500,000 hot meals a year
• Emergency shelter for 312,000 vulnerable woman, children and men
• Shelter and job training for 7,700 homeless veterans
• Long term care, housing and services for over 210,000 forgotten seniors
• The joy of Christmas for thousands of children through Adopt-A-Family
• Youth programs transforming the lives of 150,000 children
• Community programs enjoyed by over a million people
• Treatment for 31,000 addicts.
