Cars Donated to Charity

Thinking of buying a new car or truck? Lavery Chevrolet would like to help.

Thinking your old car or truck isn’t worth much as a trade in?

If you expect to get very little money for your trade-in, consider donating your old car to a charity instead.  There are benefits in doing so. In many cases, you may get a tax credit for it.  In every case, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that some less fortunate person now has the car he/she needs to get around.  Here are several well-known charities that accept car donations.

  • Salvation Army:

For detailed information call 1-800-SA-TRUCK or visit:



  • American Cancer Society: Cars For A Cure Program

If you need assistance or would like clarification of this process, please call 888-227-5500 Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. EST or send an e-mail to Betty A Coco, Director - National Cars For A Cure, at betty.coco@cancer.org.

  • American Heart Association:

According to the web: 'Whether your vehicle is a late model sedan, a classic collectable, an unfinished project, or an old clunker gathering dust in the driveway, your contribution turns any vehicle into a valuable donation for the American Heart Association.'
