Oregon Food Bank

Portland Car Donation

Considering the many good charities that you can consider for car donation in the Portland area, it is difficult to name only a few. But this charity is very reputable and worthwhile.

Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank is a hub consisting of a network of 800 hunger relief agencies. They distribute food to the hungry that is donated throughout Oregon.

Oregon Food Bank takes cars, trucks, vans, RVs, or boats. But to donate, your vehicle must be complete. It does not, however, need to run.

For car donation, Oregon Food Bank works with Volunteers of America. The steps for car donation to Oregon Food Bank is:

1. Fill out the form
2. Fax it to 503-282-0922
3. Oregon Food Bank sends a request to VOA.
4. Volunteers of America will contact you regarding pick up and transfer of title

There are advantages and disadvantages to the program. The advantage is that minus the handling fees of VOA, Oregon Food Bank gets to the proceeds. THE disadvantage is that if you want your car to be towed by the VOA, then you have to live in all cities in the !-5 corridor from Portland to Ashland.

For more information on their car donation program, you can contact Nanette Klimkow by phone at 503-282-0555 x203. or by e-mail at:
nklimkow [at] oregonfoodbank.org

Also, check out the new online form they have here to donate:

Portland Impact

Portland Car Donation

Considering the many good charities that you can consider for car donation in the Portland area, it is difficult to name only a few. But this charity is very reputable and worthwhile.

Portland Impact

Portland Impact helps people to overcome and avoid financial hardship. They offer a variety of services that include: safety net services (homeless family shelter, housing assistance, etc.), education support services, employment support services, community involvement services, and services for seniors and adults with disabilities.

Portland Impact accepts most cars trucks, vans, boats, RV’s, motorcycles, and all terrain vehicles provided that they haven’t been through a fire or flood and had no major collision damage or extensive mechanical problems. The only limit is that the vehicle’s value must cover the $70 processing fee.

Here is how Portland Impact’s car donation program works:
1. Sign the title over to Portland Impact
2. If you do not have the title, Portland Impact can assist you for an extra $30.
3. Portland Impact gives you a bill of sale and transfer notice and a tow request (towing on most vehicles is free!)

The good thing about this program is that Portland Impact gets most of the value for your car, the process is easy, and the proceeds all stay in the Portland area.

Dianne Denham is the person to call for more information at (503) 988-5961~222, or you can visit them at the Brentwood-Darlington Community Center, located at 7211 SE 62nd Ave. in Portland.
