American Red Cross Vehicle Donation Program Turns Clunkers into Compassion and Care

The American Red Cross launched a vehicle donation program with Insurance Auto Auctions (IAA) that converts unneeded vehicles into Red Cross donations to help those in need.

The program with IAA began July 15 in all 50 states.

“People may think their old vehicle is worthless but the donation could be priceless to someone in need of Red Cross services,” said Nigel Holderby. “This program turns clunkers into compassion and care.”

The program offers an easy donation process with convenient, free pick-up and towing, and a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles.

To donate a vehicle, contact the Red Cross online at redcross.org/cardonation or call 855-927-2227 to make arrangements. IAA representatives will pick up your vehicle at a time that’s convenient for you, at no cost to you. They will then sell the vehicle, give the proceeds of the sell to the American Red Cross and provide a tax receipt on behalf of the Red Cross.

The program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, tractors, farm equipment and other types of vehicles, in any condition—even salvaged.

The Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.

Contact your tax professional for details about tax deductions for vehicle donations. For more information, visit redcross.org/cardonation.
