Here’s what our Louisiana donors had to say about how donating went for them.
P.S. we didn’t make these up! They're all real donors, with real experiences.
Every time I called the lady I spoke with was very pleasant and knowledgable. I sent in my request the last week of December 2012. I talked with her a couple days later, there was no pick up time available until the 9th of January. I asked her if it had to be picked up before the end of 2012 in order to not pay personal property taxes on it for 2013...she said it's from the date you submit the claim. The guy who came to pick up my car said I had to take the sheet down to the property claims so I can show I no longer own it. I went downtown to give them the information. They said I still have to pay personal property taxes on it for the 2013 year because it was not picked up before the beginning of the year. The date of the reclaim did not matter. That was rather frustrating.
Kars4Kids was incredibly professional, prompt, and considerate. Donating could not have been easier with your organization. They even worked with me in my special case. I'm happy that my car went to a good cause.
Thanks so much!

Our charity programs are the essence of what we do. We are thankful to be able to give back to many local communities across North America and to bring educational opportunities to so many children, with the help of our sister charity Oorah. We're a registered nonprofit Jewish organization. Learn about what we do and see our charity programs here.
Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.
When kids are hungry, it's hard for them to concentrate in the classroom. We partnered with a local food bank to distribute food to local families, ensuring parents have access to the nutritious food items growing children need most. It's a lot of work to coordinate it all, but the reward is seeing happy, healthy, growing children.
We understand that learning isn't only about reading, writing, and arithmatic, but about building wholesome, happy children, too. Each child has unique gifts to be fostered and his own potential to reach. We help make that happen by providing the ideal conditions for educating the complete child.

The most environmentally-friendly car donation ever received by Kars4Kids was a toy Matchbox car. No need for towing companies, the donor just mailed it in.
