IOCC Encourages Vehicle Donations This “Cartober”

October 19, 2021

BALTIMORE, MD – International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is promoting its vehicle donation program throughout October in a national awareness campaign dubbed “Cartober” by participating nonprofit organizations.

Through a partnership with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services), IOCC accepts donations of unwanted cars, trucks, RVs, boats, and other vehicles. Supporters initiate their tax-deductible gifts online or by phone, and CARS arranges the free pickup and sale of vehicles. Proceeds result in a financial gift to IOCC from the vehicle’s donor.

With used cars in especially high demand at the moment, sales through this vehicle donation program are generating increased revenue. This means that donors are having an even greater impact, making Cartober an ideal time for a gift of this kind.

“There’s never been a better moment to donate a used car or truck to IOCC,” said Director of Development and Communications Katrina Straker. “Our donors receive step by step support as they make this gift, and the best part is that, ultimately, your old vehicle will help a people in need through IOCC’s work.”

Vehicle donations have the potential to generate hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars for their designated charities. IOCC’s partnership with CARS aims to make the process as simple as possible for donors. Pickup is free, and all the necessary paperwork is provided to record the tax-deductible gift.
