Aid to the Blind

Car Donation in Boston

There are many worthwhile charities to consider for car donation in the Boston area. It would be impossible to list all of these. I will, however, list one of the most deserving charities.

Greater Boston Aid to the Blind

Greater Boston Aid to the Blind an agency dedicated to helping people who are visually impaired. They focus on adults who are 50 and older. They deal with their personal support and rehabilitation. Their goal is to help the visually impaired lead independent lives.
Greater Boston Aid to the Blind accepts all cars made after 1987. The car should be running, but can be in non-running condition if it is due to something minor, such as a dead battery. You must have clear title to the car to donate it.

These are the steps to car donation:
1. Call and they will take down your title information and address.
2. You will receive a letter of thanks, a tax form to fill out, and a page from N.A.D.A. Appraisal Guide with your car’s make, model, and trade-in value highlighted.
3. Your pick-up order is faxed to the auction company.
4. A towing company will pick up your vehicle within 10 days.

A good thing about donating a car to Greater Boston Aid to the Blind is that they receive the full sale value of the car when it is sold at auction, minus the towing expenses. So, when you donate to them, you can be sure that they are getting most of the money.

Home for Little Wanderers

Car Donation in Boston

There are many worthwhile charities to consider for car donation in the Boston area. It would be impossible to list all of these. I will, however, list one of the most deserving charities.

The Home for Little Wanderers

The Home for Little Wanderers is a private non-profit agency that that provides life-changing services to over 100,000 children and families each year. The Home for Little Wanderers’ mission is to ensure the healthy development of children at risk through prevention and advocacy programs. They have over 30 programs. These programs include: adoption, foster care, special education, and managed care.

The Home for Little Wanderers accepts most cars, trucks, trailers, boats, and RVs. These are the steps to car donation:
1. Fill out the Vehicle Pick-Up Request
2. Once they receive the request, a towing company will contact you with 4 business days to schedule an appointment.

The only disadvantage to this program is that the Home for Little Wanderers uses a processing center to handle their donated cars. If your car can’t be sold for enough money to cover the expenses of selling the car, the processing center will contact you within 48 hours to decline it.
You can contact the processing service center at 1-800-513-6560. Or you can contact the Home for Little Wanderers directly at:
