I have been with this organization as a volunteer for going on four years. I have seen many people helped by vehicles being awarded to change their lives for the better,so they can once again regain their independence.
I joined in 2010 and was in need of a vehicle myself at the time, I was able to acquire one on my own, and stayed to help others in any way I could/.
I have met many wonderful friends while there, and have to say, this charity has changed my life, by giving me a sense of purpose. I truly feel worth while and like I am making a difference in others lives.
Today I was very excited, as yet another deserving member got what we members of Free Charity Cars have come to call "The Call"; this is when a member is chosen to receive a vehicle that has been donated in their area. It is always wonderful to me to see someone helped dur\e to this charity being there first of all to help, and to the generosity of someone whom has donated a vehicle to empower someone's life.

I cannot think of a thing I would change; except maybe find a way to promote more efficiently to bring in much needed vehicle donations

An amazing organization, I am so proud to have had an opportunity to be a part of. So many people have been helped by this amazing organization, and thousands of others waiting for the one person out there whom will make a donation of a vehicle, to empower someone to have a fresh start in life. A hand up, not a hand out! All information is available on site about this amazing charity. Take a moment and read some of the stories, a donation can help change someone's life for the better.

On the site, I am known to everyone as StillKickin. Since 2010, I have been an active participant on Free Charity Cars. I joined needing a vehicle, then was able to obtain one out of pocket, so I stayed to pay it forward for the many thousands of people whom are still there for a car. Many handicapped people also whom need handicapped accessible vehicles,
During this time, I have been so blessed to have met many friends, and learned much also.I have seen many people helped with the gift of a donated vehicle.
This changes lives so much, as without transportation, it is so hard for disabled,out of work people to get a job, further their education, or just meet their basic everyday needs.
Since FCC is at the mercy of the donating public, being they are a 501c non profit organization, many donated vehicles are needed. Any information, regarding tax deductions possible, etc; can be found at The Original Free Charity Cars website, all phone numbers to talk with someone there can be found.
Thanks for your consideration!

The only changes I would make cost money to do, such as more publicity and advertising,which is hard with a limited budget as a non-profit.

I am a volunteer member of this wonderful charity.I joined in 2010, as I was in need of a vehicle. Shortly after, I was able to purchase a used vehicle.I stayed on with this charity to help others achieve their dream of car ownership,being I knew how hard it can be with nothing to drive and get you around just to meet your basic everyday need.
I have seen this amazing charity help many people in that time,by awarding donated vehicles by the public, to these members.
Unfortunately, there are not enough needed vehicles, and many more are needed,but the charity is at the mercy of the donating public. I urge anyone who reads these reviews, to pleas visit the charity's page, and read about the charity and some of the applicant's.

I have been a volunteer member of this wonderful charity since 2010. I started out needing a car, but was able to get one on my own, so I stayed on to help others by giving them my votes, or help whenever they needed.
I have seen many wonderful things happen while here,and met some amazing people.
The man that started this charity, Mr. Menzies, is amazing! His story is amazing.The staff of this charity are amazing, and go out of their way to help.
I have to say, it is sad that there are so many thousands of people who need the help of a vehicle so they can just be able to meet their own needs, go back to school, etc; and this all depends solely on donations of vehicles from the public.Free Charity Cars needs donated vehicles badly so they can help some of these people in need. Once in a while, about an average of one or two a month, someone is helped. That count is down, as people are,understandably ,getting tight.
I am asking all who care about others, to please check out this organization, and read some of the members stories. It is heartbreaking,how many are in such need. Donations are tax deductible.
You can read about them through their own website which has a section "About Us",and they also are linked to all the social network sites.Their Facebook page is amazing.
God willing, there will be some people who see and read about them, and maybe donate their vehicles,extra ones of course,and give some of these people hope. The charity has not given up, the volunteers have not given up, and I beg the public to please not give up on us either.
Thank you!
