General Announcements

Vehicle donation program continues to use proceeds as direct aid to poor

The vehicle donation program at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, now completing its third year, continues to earn money for the purchase of food and other essential items to aid the poor. Donors receive written confirmation of the sale price which may be used as a tax deduction.

The all-volunteer organization uses little overhead, making it possible to provide nearly 100 percent of the proceeds to directly aid the area’s neediest citizens. Proceeds are used for emergency assistance to families in need, including for rent, utilities, transportation, medicines and food.

Vehicles—cars, trucks, motorcycles, and boats—are auctioned, and the proceeds benefit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Parish conference that is closest to the donor’s home. Vehicles do not have to be in running order when donated.

According to Bernie Wietekamp, coordinator of the program for the Indianapolis council of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, money earned from local vehicle donations totaled more than $28,000.

To donate or find out more information on the program, log on to www.svdpusacars.com or call 800-322-8284.
