Ready to say “donate my car” after all that driving?

Whether the Memorial Day Parade was your trailer’s last journey or the trek from barbecue to barbecue finally wore out your truck’s motor, please consider donating your vehicle to Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio.

Even if it’s not running, we can arrange free same-day towing to come get it. Additionally, you might make more money off of your vehicle as a tax-deductible donation than you would by selling it.
