Donate a Vehicle and Help Children Heal
One Car = One Week for our Families
If you think that old car in your driveway isn’t worth much, think again! By donating your car, truck, boat or RV to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley, you can help provide a “home away from home” for families of children receiving life-saving medical care far from home.
Through our partnership with Cars, a national vehicle donation program, the process of donating your vehicle is simple and quick.
- Donate your vehicle: Visit carshelp.org or call (855) 227-7435. Enter in your contact information as well as information about your vehicle (year, make, model and approximate mileage).
- Cars picks up the vehicle: At no cost to you, Cars will tow the vehicle to the local auction. Or, if you prefer, you can drop off the vehicle yourself.
- Your vehicle is sold at an auction: Cars cleans the donated vehicle to make sure its top notch for the auction. This will help you get the highest sale price.
- You get the sales receipt to file for a tax deduction: Not only will you make a difference in the lives of the families we serve, you may even get a tax break! Laws vary by location, so ask a tax adviser about your specific opportunities.
We receive the proceeds: The cash your donated vehicle sells for at the auction will go to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley.
