You can give CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) a call at 1-855-500-RIDE or go through their online donation process and designate WEFT as the non-profit beneficiary.
CARS will schedule the vehicle for pick up by a licensed tow complany at no cost to you. You will be provided a donation receipt at the time of pick up. They evaluate each vehicle with the goal of ensuring that WEFT recieves the maximum amount of money possible.
Within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, you will receive a thank you letter, which you may use as a tax receipt for vehicles that sell for $500 or less. If your donated vehicle sells for more than $500, CARS will mail you an additional receipt known as "IRS Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes" if your tax identification number has been provided.
