‘Wheels Helping Warriors’ Program Offers Unique Opportunity to Support Disabled Veterans
Paralyzed Veterans of America, a non-profit organization working to serve the needs and challenges faced by American veterans with disabilities and their families, announce the national launch of its vehicle donation program, Wheels Helping Warriors. The program provides a new opportunity for customers to donate critical funding that will improve the lives of and empower disabled veterans. This marks the organization’s first nationwide vehicle donation program.
Through Wheels Helping Warriors, supporters will be able to seamlessly process their donated vehicles in order to support disabled veterans in Paralyzed Veterans of America’s 34 chapters across the U.S. Paralyzed Veterans of America gladly accepts a wide range of vehicles, regardless of their current condition. Scheduling a pickup is free and donors receive a tax deduction following the sale of the vehicle.
“This type of program is vital to Paralyzed Veterans of America’s fundraising efforts,” said Bill Lawson, national President. “It provides another opportunity for donors to give, and allows us to continue the important work we do in providing free veterans services, civil rights advocacy and ensuring quality healthcare for veterans and their families.”
Paralyzed Veterans of America will partner with the Donation Division of IAA, the leading live and live-online salvage auto auction company and wholly-owned subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR). IAA’s Donation Division provides non-profit organizations with complete donation processing services – a key differentiator in the marketplace that creates a simplified approach for participants. In 2012, well over 500 designated charities throughout North America have benefitted from vehicle donations through IAA’s services.
