one may even think of throwing it in scrap. But when such used
vehicle is donated to an organization, it may boost their fund
raising drive for their activities of social importance. Such
used vehicles received from the donors are used by these
organizations for providing help to need people in many ways. An
organization may modify the vehicle into an ambulance or use it

calamity. The organization may think of auction the received
vehicle to raise fund for their social activities. In both the
cases your contribution surely helps the needy people.
