Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

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.

Warmth In Winter

When it‘s cold and snowy out, there‘s nothing like a Kars4Kids‘ winter retreat. Kids may not be getting the warmth they need at home and school, but our volunteers make sure that every child attending the retreat gets warm attention. There are lots of smiles in evidence as kids play at winter sports and make new lifelong friends.

Strengthening Family Bonds

Kars4Kids recognizes that children are part of a whole and that strengthening the family strengthens the child and his chances for success. Mentoring services are available for every member of the family. There‘s always someone ready to lend a listening ear or offer advice and help. Weekend family retreats fortify and restore the loving ties that bind.

Still have questions?

The amount you can claim from the IRS as a tax deduction depends on the category applicable to you:
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a) The value of your vehicle up to $500. It is up to the donor to determine the fair market value.
b) The amount we sell your vehicle for - if it is more than $500.

Kars4kids is a classified 501(c)(3) charity organization. You can check with your tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit. The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. For a more detailed overview the IRS publishes a Donors Guide to Car Donation.
We accept the following donations: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, RV (motor home), commercial, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, and fleet donations. Sorry no kids.

1. Remove all plates
All plates must be removed from your car prior to towing.

2. Return your plates to the DMV
License plates can be mailed to the DMV or dropped off in person.
Once your plate has been received by PennDOT (Pennsylvania Department of Transportation), it will be marked as a "dead tag" on the vehicle record. By returning your Pennsylvania license plate to PennDOT, this will help protect you from any future liability on this vehicle.

Drop your plates off in person.

Capital operates from two branch offices so is able to cover quite a wide swath of territory. The company services car donations anywhere from Delaware to Harrisburg, to Bridgeport, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and surrounding areas. In business for 17 years, the company doesn‘t actually have its own fleet but sublets from a variety of area operators.

The company has a lot of wild stories to tell about the items customers leave behind, but perhaps the one that really touches the heart is about something very sentimental that a car owner had left in the trunk of her car before the towers came to take it away. Luckily, the staff found the item and called the owner. It was-wait for it-her dad‘s grave marker.

Apparently, after the tombstone was put down, the deceased man‘s daughter decided to take the marker for sentimental reasons and was very happy that the workers had made the effort to locate her-she wanted it back. The company reunited the customer with this precious item and all were happy once more.
