My name is Jacki. I am a 46 yr old mom with a special needs child. I walk several miles to work. I ♡my job and I want to keep it, but it is not always easy in this Portland weather . Life would be easier if I had the freedom to go to all the required appointments for my son and take him fun places, if only there was a way. This will be my first car and my first driver's license ever.I believe it is never too late to follow your dreams. Please help me make this dream a reality for a mom with a child on the Autism spectrum. Much love and respect to this awesome charity and those who make it happen for people in need. ♡Jacki
I am a mom of 11 year old boy who doesn’t get to enjoy school extra curricular because of no transportation. I am also a daughter of a terminally ill mom. I would love to have a reliable car to help my son and mom engage in a better life. Thank you in advance for any donations.
I waited over 24 hrs. for their contracted towing service to pick up the car and was told after calling, it would be 2 hours, they just got too busy to show up. Finally came next day after several more calls. Then i get an invoice that says it won’t be given to a needy person but sold at auction. No indication that an older car still in excellent condition, also with new tires car and passing recent state inspection would not qualify for this gift. Too late after transfer to find their apparent very narrow criteria for donation vs. auction.Ask for criteria BEFORE!
Charity Cars, Inc. is a wonderful organization that helps people in dire and desperate need for a new car for transportation purposes to places like Medical and Doctors Appointments, Jobs and places of employment, schools for them or for their children and important errands like to the store or market to buy food and groceries. I have joined this organization to see about getting a new car to be able to take my Father who is 85 years to his needed Doctors Appointments as well as help me obtain a job and/or steady employment to help bring some needed money to my household. Charity Cars, Inc. is a great program that will help people to not let not having a car for transportation keep them down.
Hi! My name is Ana E. Moreno, I moved to Florida from Puerto Rico after the pass of hurricane Maria. It's been hard for me and my family to find a car. I can't go to work without a car so I feel like I'm stuck and I'm not progressing because I also want to study I want to be a doctor to help those in needs,my mom can't do her stuff without a car, it's difficult for us to move around without a car. We don't have our own play to stay and it's really difficult staying at my grandma's one bedroom apartment and one of my brothers it's staying at another family member house, I just wish someone could help us for this time. I promise I'll pay it forward, Than you!
I'm a 52 year old grandmother raising my three beautiful granddaughters ten eight and six and I need help with a vehicle to get them to the counseling did Dr the dentist grocery shopping laundromat daily needs doctor's appointments and if anyone could find it in your heart to help me I would be very appreciative we need a vehicle so very desperately I don't mind raising my three but grandbabies I love them they're my heart but it'll be a lot easier if I had a vehicle where I could get them where they got to go thank you. Had a beautiful it's a 94 Ford Ranger and it's not running any longer and I don't have the money to invest in it but I am in desperate need of transportation to take care of my grandkids they've been through enough
My name is Toni and I live in Tupelo ms where there's no public transportation here so I'm trying desperately to get a vehicle to gain back my independence. I'm a dialysis patient which takes alot of my time an doing simple things like grocery shopping or picking up my meds is always difficult. I have great friends who take me places I need to be such as doctors appointment and even have taken me 3 hours drive to my transplant review! I don't even have extra money to give for gas. I feel terrible about it. Just awful feeling
This helps people that are in crisis and of need of a car get a car so they can become productive citizens and eventally pay it forward to someone less fourtunate. Or donate of cars to receive them at prices made affordable.
I do two or three times a month, give a donation to families and for myself, instead of buying extra stuff that is not needed, like shoes or fast food ect. I am broke and we have nothing but if I can help just one family then maybe it will come back for us and 10 fold. That's what my Mom and Grandmother used to say and now I believe it. God Bless and Happy Easter all!
Review from JustGive
My name is Julia and I am new to this site and have found myself with this huge smile on my face to read the reviews and stories of the life changing acts of caring and making a difference to make so many peoples lives better.
Even to just make one isolated person feel that up lifting experience that they were no longer trapped in isolation, depression, and loneliness, and could just be able to drive to the store for groceries and smile at someone in the grocery store.
This organization and its stories restores my faith and believe that there are still good people out there that care and can make a difference in someones life.
This is my life i live on disability have lost all that I have worked for all my life my home my car my dignity. I have become very isolated which only adds to my disability and its many debilitating effects and tolls it takes on me daily. I do not get out to doctor appointments which means i do not get the medications i should be on to help, and i literally sleep my life away. I wake up eat and go back to sleep, I do not have TV cannot afford to pay for TV....lol living on SSDI, (nothing income=homelessness) moreover I will be homeless on May 15, 2017. I feel as if i have lost all hope and then find this site and well it restored my hope that there may still be a chance for so many in my situation including myself i cannot tell you how many of us are out there and so many that do not have internet access to know of such organizations like this one that are out there that can actually make a difference and help so many.
Some of the stories brought tears to my eyes but with a huge smile of happiness for the peoples stories i have read and the great things this organization did to make that difference for them : )
Blue book value of my car was over $2,000. Only 84,000 miles on it and new tires. They likely sold it for only a fraction of what it was worth and I only got a $500 deduction... So there is a dealer making $ off of my charitable contribution. That leaves a sour taste in my mouth. If the $2,000 went to help people, I wouldn't be bothered about the tax deduction, but everyone would have been better off if I sold it myself and donated the $ to a different charity. They did tell me that they planned to sell my car, but I figured it would be for closer to what the value was. Back out if they tell you that they will sell your car!
I was Awarded a 2004 Mercury Sable in 2014 by Free Charity Cars . The car was barely driven & had just 25,000 Original Miles on it, all leather, fully loaded !! You cannot ask for a better charity that helps others in need. Please do not listen to the negativity about this organization. I have known Many people who have received a FREE vehicle ,including my own Brother. If you're in need, please sign up, all you have to do is vote for others to help them and promote the charity. Some things in Life are Free !! You better believe it Friend :)
Thank you for voting for your Local Hero in the National Mobility Awareness Month contest
Disappointed in this charity!!! Donated our vehicle with only 110,000 miles and running perfectly (brand new tires I might add and work done recently) only to be given a receipt that it wouldn't be given to a disadvantaged individual so I can only deduct $500 rather than the $1800 that it was worth. Steer clear people. I will never again do this. Head to Salvation Army to donate like I did in the past.

Our website is very clear-we have a Pre-approval process where donors can be 100% certain before they donate that we will provide their car to a family. We are the ONLY national charity with the mission to provide vehicles free to families. Vehicles must be road worthy and have value to be selected for our giveaway program. The Salvation Army sells all their vehicles so this donors deduction would have been the same . We never wish to disappoint anyone but donors must read our website and follow directions. as we have made our process perfectly clear.
Hello, I'm new at this... but giving everything I can to figure this out.
Im a new mother; I have a 3 week old daughter and I just turned 18, of October 2016.
I was in job corps for 8 months working on my GED and my trade. Sadly, I only left with my trade completed and 2 out of 4 of the classes for my GED.
I live in a very small town and am raising my daughter on my own. No car, and no job till she hits 6 weeks. In order to get my GED, I'm in classes 2 days a week. My classes though, of course, aren't in my town... so I have to travel an hour to another town to take them using my grandmothers car. Her struggling with money for gas for work bothers me when it comes to me having to use her gas too. She gets paid once a month so we are right on money.. I'm on WIC so that helps with my daughter's needs.
It would be really helpful if I had my own vehicle so I could get to my classes, look for a decent job to go with my trade experience, and to look for a good daycare for my daughter during those hours..
Please pray and help my daughter and I with this , it would be great!
i have been a member of this organization since april of 2016. I learned about this organization during a time when i had just lost my car. Since then i have had the experience of witnessing many members receive a donated car. i believe in this charity and have great respect for the work they are doing. free-charity cars was established in 1966 and since this time have awarded over 4500 donated cars to families in need. Your help is needed to help spread the word and promote our organization to the public. Charity Cars makes it easy to donate your old unwanted car and also offer the possibility of a "fair market" tax deduction to those who do. We will also pick-up the vehicle for free. please visit our website at www.freecharitycars.com or call 1-800-charity cars for more information. (avedleifbirch)
This incredibly, awesome Non-Profit Charity Cars can't describe with words!
I have been a member since 2011. My member name is Magnifica55.
I have received so much encouragement and inspiration from other members here to endure my current situation. We have so much in common and can relate to one another. Everything in life is a little easier when you hear and see the compassion of others for each other. I have been waiting for a long time for a vehicle but I have hope of getting one with this wonderful organization.
I was skeptical was I first heard about The Free Charity Cars.
I have so enlightened since joining.
I have voted for and have seen that people really do get vehicles.
It is really hard to get a job, get to appointments and basic necessity without a car.
FCC truly knows this and donate can change the despair we have when cars are given.
Thank you for making this a valid possibility!
I believe this charity is amazing from reading the testimonials its is apparent this community outreach is unique to how it does more than help people, it goes beyond that to actually changed lives! A second chance to achieve independence through donations lives are empowered to succeed.
Finally some ine who cares about others! You dont see much of this anywhere. Thier are families out there who really need this help like me. And its just amazing and a blessing that they are actually helping them! Please vote for me. Im a single mom due to my husband beating me up ow im left with a job with no car because we shared one and i cant psy rent and lights and buy food for mh child with out getting to work! So hopefully i am blessed enough to win one! For everyone else write a great honest review! They totaly deserve it!
Charity cars is doing a wonderful thing to help people in need EARN a car....by voting for others on their website. People vote for others everyday and in return, you vote for them. It's a great way to be involved and help others in a small way to get them recognized to be the recipient of a donor vehicle. And by promoting the charity to get more people to donate their vehicles to help as well. It's a truly wonderful thing they are doing! I've been on the site since 10/11/16. My user name is Twiggy. In the short time I've been on there I've came across some remarkable people. It's just an amazing charity work that gets all applicants, donars, and recipients involved to make it what it is!
Free Charity Cars is awesome, they have changed so many people's lives, gave them their independence back. They are not looking for profit only helping humanity.
The giving from Free Charity never quits, they are always out there to help low income families, ones who have no where else to turn, ones that no one will help. They not only get help but their lives are changed from one phone call. That was all it took for me. I love them.
