For the months I was able to serve with Cars of Hope I was impressed with their handling of both monetary donations and their handling of donated vehicles. Vehicles with a good serviceable life are thoroughly inspected, repaired, and detailed. Cars that had no real service life were disposed of properly and for a cash value that was recycled into money destined for repairs. The cars were gifted by the volunteer staff of Cars of Hope to people in dire need of transportation. If I'm ever in position to donate a vehicle, I will not hesitate to donate it to them.

Cars of Hope does a fantastic job in providing individuals with reliable transportation, who would otherwise find it difficult to afford the initial investment. I was involved in one such recipient, who was able to find a more suitable, better paying job as a result. He now had the ability to travel to work in his own vehicle, and not rely only on public transportation, which limited his employment opportunities. Individuals who donate their used vehicles to Cars of Hope are making a significant investment in people’s lives!
