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.

This charity is great. They are helping change peoples lives. Making people in needs dreams come true. It is a great thing that is so lacking these days. I think if there was more people like this, there would be great opportunities for more people to get off state assistance and lead promising futures.

This is a wonderful Charity that helps needy people to receive vehicles. While it does take some time because all of the vehicles are donated, they really do serve a lot of deserving recipients. May god bless you all and may his angels be with you always

Hello, My name is Ggypsy and I am a client on the waiting list for a Vehicle. I have been a member of Free Charity Cars for almost a year, commending this organization for the wonderful work they do by providing donated vehicles to people really in need.. Such a wonderful opportunity for those of us that have no other way to provide a vehicle for ourselves. Not to mention all the wonderful friendships formed along the way. I highly recommend this organization to be elected the winner!

Charity Cars gave me the opportunity to tell my story to many. They have allowed many people who have never had a chance at car ownership the opportunity to not only get a car, but a FREE car. It seems too good to be true, but it's true!

Hello my name is Jennifer Clarke I am a recipient of fcc, I have so much that I can say about this charity but I don't think that there is enough space here to say it all in 2011 I received a car a 2003 Rodeo from fcc, and wow has it changed my life it gave me my self worth back and they help believe in the impossible. They have taken I can't out of my life. I tell anyone that wants to step out of faith to accomplish any thing in life to just do. You'll be amazed about the blesings that is in store for you. Free Charity Cars has taught me that anything that you truly believe in and pray for will come to pass, just hold on to your faith. I would like to thank fcc. they gave me my independence back.

My Name is Jennifer Clarke, Free Charity Car has helped me make so many changes in my life, I was in a car accident in 2008 which rendered my disabled after that accident I lost everything that I had work so hard for, one of my biggest lose was my car leaving me so, depended on my family and love one. I was unable to walk far with out being in so much pain. But, January 2012 I received a call from fcc letting me know that someone has donated a car for me, I was blessed with a 2003 Rodeo. And since that has happen I move back out of my mother home into my own place, I work part time, I am taking some classes going to the gym and regaining my strength back everyday. Fcc, made me start believing in the impossible. And I will all in some way be apart of this charity.

I have been with Free Charity Cars now for almost one year. In this year I have had to vote for at least two hours per day. This has been good for me. It gives me a responsibility in weather or not I get a car. It gives me great hope. Please help this awesome organization by picking them.

When I was at the lowest point in my life this wonderful organization gifted me a car. It was not just any piece of junk they make sure the cars are in good shape before they are gifted. Reggie and Brian are angels on earth. When you hear a FREE car no one believes it but it's true. The people on the website were better to me than my own family when my husband was fighting cancer. No only did they understand they gave their heartfelt love and prayers. Cannot say enough about this life changing group of angels!! Love you all...

I was told about this great organization by a person trying to help me out with my car situation....and I have to say that this organization is a great organization trying to help others that are less fortunate get cars that they may need for a various array of reasons.....I have to say that whether you are a client like me or just another person in public that likes to help promote this company it is a great way to meet people all around the world that are going through some of the same hardships of not having cars for several reasons. I think everyone should check this website out whether you know of someone to donate a car or to just join and help out the less fortunate....you will be AMAZED at some of the stories you will read....they are heart-wrenching!!!! Go FCC!!!!
