In 2010 I was laid off from my job of 10 1/2 years and lost my Grand Marquis at the same time. Carless and jobless in Rochester NY is not a good position to be in - downtown and surrounding areas served by the limited bus service leaves very few jobs available. The best are in the suburbs, out of reach if depending on the bus. I started on FCC then. Shortly afterwards I realized what a great charity it is. It's structured as a nurturing community that helps each other out in the goal of having a car donated. I met very good people on the site, and loved the communal feel of it. After a couple years I still didn't have a car and had a very lousy job making barely minimum wage. I had given up on getting a car from FCC, but liked the community so much remained active ( except when my internet was down). Last month I received a call from them saying they had a car for me! And it is a gem... a Subaru Outback, 2002 with only 69,000 miles. It 's much , much nicer than I ever expected. Already I have had several job interviews I would have never been able to get to without a car, and have went to full time at my part time job - a significant increase in my income and only possible with a car. I can't say enough good things about this charity, and will support it any way I can . Thank you , Free Charity Cars, and Brian Menzes, the mastermind behind the ingenious design .
I have been a member of Free Charity Cars for almost 3 years. Its a wonderful organization!! So many kind hearted members with helpful, uplifting, and encouraging attitudes assistng one another in the journey to self sufficiency.

I started on FreeCharityCars.org on April 11, 2014. The number of people who have become friends that vote for me each and everyday they are able is very humbling. I have had a few transfers of votes to help me as well. My story is that I am on mental disability and I have arthtitis in my left help as well as thin bones. It is difficult to walk any distance and we have to walk for we don't have a car. I think of all my friends as family and we send messages to each other. Either well wishes, congratulations, Happy BIrthday, depending on their status each day. This is the greatest place to get help and there are wonderful folks who are willing to help you. I love FreeCharityCars.org and all the voters. This is the greatest place to help getting a car.
I learned of the charity in needing a car myself. My current vehicle is inoperable as the engine is seized up. Here in rural Maine, only a handful of communities actually have public transit. I am not fortunate to live in one of those communities or even close to one. I am a former firefighter and also worked with the Dept of Defense in Maine with the Navy. I was disabled due to that service and have a wife and two sons (8&9) to care for as well. I am working with vocational rehabilitation to get retrained into a different line of work - but need a car to do that. Wont you please visit www.freecharitycars.org and vote for my family? (user name "dstubenrod"). I have not yet received a car and need an automatic as I have a lag brace on my left leg.
I am new to the FCC (Free Charity Cars Organization). I learned about them through a recipient of a new car!!! She was so excited to tell me about her experience with FCC that because of my need for a car, I decided to join as well. They are a very caring organization that helps people in need to get back their independence! The work they do is amazing. I have had such an awesome experience in the last week that I have joined, becoming friends with members and reading about their trials and tribulations being without transportation just like me. There are many members still on the sight after they received their cars helping people out and being so grateful about receiving their cars. Please help this organization to continue to do this great work that they do! Thank you
Thank you for providing me an opportunity to share about how great 800CharityCars.org is to me. I found this charity one evening while I was looking for someplace to receive assistance to obtain a vehicle. I am 51 years old and considered a senior by the University of Texas in Austin where I was studying Astronomy/Physics. My thought was to graduate with a degree in about a year and half, find a job and to establish myself in a science career. The funding ran out. Apparently there is a $60,000 limit on the amount of loan money from the government. I was only able to obtain 3 semesters and one summer at UT because I began my education at a two-year college then transferred to the 4-year college. Now I am close to being homeless. I have no car which makes it difficult to find a job and then to keep the job. Without transportation, life is exceptionally difficult. People with cars rarely stop to consider what it would be like without a car. Think about it. If there were not places like 800CharityCars.org, there would be a lot of people without the tool they need to give them a chance to survive in life. It was with great relief to consider that there might be hope for my future through 800CharityCars.org. I am working hard to build my portfolio on 800CharityCars.org so I can earn a car. The best thing about it is that EVERYONE on the site works together and cares about each other. That is what makes this organization so different from other organizations, especially if you are alone in the world. Giving a car to someone in need is like giving them a tool to make a better life for themselves. It is kind of like giving them a hand up so they can improve the quality of their life. If you have a car to give, please give it. If you can donate to 800CharityCars.org, please do so. Every contribution gets someone closer to self efficiency and moving forward to a better life. Thank you so very much.
Great site connecting with caring people sharing same struggles as myself. It makes me feel as though I'm not alone we all support each other!
I've been a member of Free Charity Cars for over a year. This site consists of loving, caring people who not vote for each other, but are there to provide love and support to each other. We pray for each other and check in to make sure our FCC family members are doing well.
This site gives hope to so many. Those who have received vehicles have had their lives changed by the generosity of our donors. God bless the donors, the FCC staff, and all my fellow members of FCC.
I have donated my old (non-working) car so that they can sell it and use the money to purchase a vehicle for the next person on the list. I'm also a member who is looking to eventually earn enough votes to get a vehicle. This is a fabulous service. The people who vote for other members are THE BEST! Thank you all, and God bless you!
I signed up with FCC at the beginning of 2014. I had some difficulty understanding what I needed to do to receive a charity car, as well, as how I could help others. FCC is a very "user friendly" website and the staff has been remarkably attentive to helping guide me on problematic issues and questions. This is a wonderful charity whose mission is very important to assisting others to a level of self sufficiency.
