Hurricane Katrina disrupted the lives of many, many thousands of Americans, not only in New Orleans, but across the Gulf States. Goodwill Industries, through the generosity of the millions of Americans who pitched in what they could during this horrific national disaster, did an amazing job of helping ease the burden placed on all those so severely affected by the hurricane, much like they did in the aftermath of 9/11. Car donation programs are fast becoming one of the best ways for people to raise money to help people in need.

Car donation not only benefits people out of work and needing food, clothes, and shelter, it also provides a tax deduction for the individual or group donating the car. The best part of the process for those who selflessly donate an unwanted car may well be the tremendous feeling of well being that undoubtedly occurs when you help your fellow man, knowing that a child or family will have a place to sleep and enough food to eat in this country that, like the rest of the world, is going through tough economic times.

If you would like to assist Goodwill, whose 500,000 volunteers work tirelessly for the benefit of the less fortunate, one of the best, and easiest, ways is through car donation. Millions of cars in this country sit idle, gathering rust and serving no purpose whatsoever. A call to your local Goodwill chapter will start the very simple car donation process.
