Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. An eyesore in your eyes may be a picture of perfection in another pair of eyes. Never is this principle more true than when you donate a car to charity. Maybe the old clunker that has been sitting around since your son or daughter graduated from college and moved out of the house has become a nuisance and you have been thinking about calling someone to tow it away. If you don’t already know about car and vehicle donation programs, make that call to Goodwill, instead of calling a junkyard.

If you have an epiphany late at night, you can call the D.C. chapter of Charity Dispatch, at 800-506-0172. They will answer the phone 24/7 and assist Goodwill with the logistics of donating your car, with the resulting funds acquired from selling the vehicle at auction going to assist many of the less fortunate in life. Rest assured the D.C. chapter makes the whole process painless, and seamless, with your vehicle being picked up within a couple of days, and most often within 24 hours of your call. There is no charge for towing your car, as opposed to many junkyards who might charge you just to tow the vehicle away.

That ugly vehicle that has been taking up driveway or garage space, when donated, will look like a new showroom beauty in the eyes of the charity when they pick it up. The smile on their face will also brighten your day. A car donation, even an ugly one, is really a beautiful sight.
