Car Donation to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank

In the same way we fuel our cars, everyone needs enough food to eat. And in L.A. County there lafoodbank2are 1.4 million people who are going hungry. A car donation to the LA Regional Food Bank is a way to help make sure that more of these families in need get food.

Why should I donate my car to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank?

A car charity donation to the LA Food Bank means you’re affecting the lives of children, seniors, people with disabilities and all members of families. Since 1973, the non-profit has been striving to bring resources into the community, and the Los Angeles County Regional Food Bank now serves more than 300,000 people a month.

Your vehicle donation to the LA Regional Food Bank furthers that goal!

It’s so nice when that serendipitous situation comes along, such as needing to figure out what to do with a vehicle you don’t need and, at the same time, wanting to support a non-profit. When you donate a car to charity through Cars2Charities, you see a beautiful picture of the synergy that causes so much good in the world.

And speaking of global concerns, would you like to live a “greener” life? Your vehicle is, of course, a big part of that decision. When you see the list of car manufacturers with hybrid models, it reads like a “who’s who”: Lexus, Mercedes, Infiniti, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota, etc. Of course, there will come a time when all car makers will have environmentally responsible vehicles.

When you donate a vehicle to the LA Regional Food Bank you are benefiting them, of course, but you’re also saving yourself a big headache. Have you tried to sell a car before? It’s not the best experience in life!

First of all, you need to determine its value, which leads you to surfing the web, spending all kinds of time on the project. Next, it needs to be thoroughly cleaned – detailed – which requires time AND money.

At Cars2Charities, we do all that for you – all while working with the Food Bank to make sure that proceeds from the sale of your donation car makes it to the source.

If you’re getting ready to replace your vehicle, keep in mind you can donate your car to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and in addition to funding the delivery of food to partner agencies, provide nutrition education to many Americans who lack understanding.

How does an LA Food Bank car donation work?

It’s a simple way you can show you are a humanitarian who cares about those less fortunate.

Your part? Make one phone call to us at 855-520-2100 or donate online and the job is done.

At Cars2Charities we have a streamlined donation process, so it takes you about 5 minutes to make a difference.

Our part? We send a friendly associate at a time and place that’s convenient for you and we tow away your donation car, so you can move forward – spending some time on the Galpin lot or checking with Car Gurus to pick out something new.

What you don’t want to do is a dealer trade-in. You lose 60-70% of the value of your car that way! And you lose the chance to make a charity car donation to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

With Cars2Charities you’re getting a family-owned company that’s been in the car donation industry for 30 years – and we’re straightforward about everything, plus walk you through the process.lafoodbank1

You’re a generous soul who knows you have advantages in life that others only dream about. This is a chance to let your blessing (the ability to buy a new car) be a blessing for others (a car, truck or SUV donation to the LA Regional Food Bank).

How do I process a car donation tax deduction to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank?

Do you have a tried-and-true CPA? If so, does he/she nag you about garnering more tax deductions?

It’s kind of a no-brainer to parlay a car you don’t need into something that helps others, but even more satisfying when you know your accountant will approve!

Or do you save money by doing your own taxes through Turbo Tax? Luckily their website walks you – and anyone else with vehicle donations – through the auto donation process.

And there’s more good news about your bottom line: When you make a car or truck donation to the LA Regional Food Bank through Cars2Charities, you get the advantage of our great system. After we pick up your donation vehicle, our technicians give it a once-over to see if there are any alterations that would be beneficial to the sale of your car.

It tends to sell for 25-50% more that way, and a bigger sale price equals a bigger tax benefit for you.

As for the paperwork, you can have every confidence we follow all IRS guidelines. Both you and the charity will receive Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale of your car.

Perhaps you’ve never known what it means to have doubts about where you’ll get your next meal. But for these millions of our neighbors, which is about 16 percent of L.A. County’s residents, they may go to bed without food tonight.lafoodbank4

You need to “re-home” your car and millions of locals need food. It’s an amazing combination. Call us at Cars2Charities when you’re ready to donate a car to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to grant the wish of hunger relief to many through your generous gift.
