People with working cars in good repair that they no longer want are encouraged to donate them to the Wheels to Work program at the South Central Community Action Program.
The donated cars will be used to help local low-income people improve their self-sufficiency. The donations are tax deductible so people who want a 2010 tax deduction should make their donation before the end of the year. It is a simple process to donate a car.
Low-income people who are working or going to school but lack dependable transportation are allowed to purchase the donated cars at half of their Kelley Blue Book value. These recipients make arrangements to pay for the car on a schedule that fits their budget.
Money that is received from those buying the cars at half price is used for any necessary repairs to other donated cars. Donated cars must be in good, working condition.
