|LIFE Elder Care Inc.|
Virginia Carlson of Fremont began LIFE ElderCare in 1975 as a nutritional program with delivery to Fremont's frail, homebound seniors. Meals were prepared and packaged at a local school kitchen and delivered by a group of volunteers. That first year of service, some 300 meals were provided and today, Meals on Wheels at LIFE ElderCare provides over 350 meals per day to frail, homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities living in Fremont, Newark and Union City.
Support LIFE ElderCare by donating your vehicle. Cars, boats, trucks and vans are all welcome, working or not. Let us deal with the paperwork and vehicle removal while you receive the tax benefit!

Since 1988, Project Mexico has been involving young people in the alleviation of suffering by building homes for Mexico's poor. In 1996 our outreach expanded through the opening of St. Innocent Orthodox Orphanage in Tijuana which provides a home for teenage boys who live on the streets or who have been put out of other orphanages and would otherwise be left to fend for themselves. In operation only six years, it was named one of the top three institutions in the state for 2001. St. Innocent Orphanage is the only facility dedicated to teenage boys in Tijuana and one of only four in the entire country of Mexico.
This charitable outreach is unique because our very own people do the work. In the process, their lives are changed. This proven, powerful vehicle of change has provided a fertile environment for thousands of youth to grow in Christ and give of themselves by doing works of mercy for a needy world. Volunteers from 43 of 50 states and eleven foreign countries have participated. Additionally, we hope to continue strengthening the ties between the people of the U.S. and Mexico and be an example of how we can help each other when we work together.
Thank you for thinking of us and the children and families whom we help. Our program relies on the generosity of individuals. When you donate, you allow us to provide hope to more families without homes and more children without families. Vehicle donations are turned into funds to build more homes for families and take more boys off the streets. The average non-profit has administrative costs from 20% - 50%. Our administrative costs for last year were 17%. This means that eighty-three cents of every dollar goes directly to programs and services.
Donating your vehicle also gives you a great tax break and frees you of the hassle of selling a car - advertisements, strangers visiting your home, phone calls, haggling, etc.
|Project Open Hand|
In 1985 in San Francisco, Ruth Brinker, a retired grandmother, watched a dear friend die of AIDS. She realized that for many people with HIV/AIDS, malnutrition was causing death as much as the illness itself. At that time, no social service agency was providing meals to those too weak from AIDS or too impoverished to feed themselves. Using her experience as a manager with another food program, Ruth enlisted the help of her friends, secured a basement kitchen at a local church and began to serve meals to seven clients, Project Open Hand was born.
As more people heard about Ruth's "project" more requests started coming in for home-delivered meals and Ruth put out a call for volunteers. Project Open Hand has not stopped growing since.
Donate a car, van, truck, RV, boat, or even plane to Project Open Hand and help yourself to a fair-market-value tax deduction. You will also save yourself the time and expense of selling it. There are two organizations that handle this. Either visit the Vehicle Donation Processing Center website to donate a car or call them at (800) 553-3018, or call Charity Connection at (800) 772-4274 and mention that you would like to donate your vehicle on behalf of Project Open Hand. Both organizations will pick up the vehicle, handle the necessary paperwork, sell it and give the proceeds to Project Open Hand.
|Redwood Empire Food Bank|
The mission of the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) is to build partnerships to end hunger. Founded in 1987, REFB is Sonoma County's largest hunger-relief organization.

In addition, the REFB advocates for effective legislation that will provide long-term solutions to hunger in our community.
Thank you for your interest in donating a vehicle to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. We're happy to say that we have bolstered vital programs through funding obtained by this vehicle donation program. Your donation helps us increase contributions to the public good! Thank you for your donation.
