The New Year is a wonderful time for organizing and repurposing, and donating items you’re no longer using can feel great. If you’re doing some housekeeping, and one of the things you are considering getting rid of this year is a vehicle, think about donating it. Your vehicle donation can support the enriching opportunities Christian Living Communities provides every day to older adults.

In 2020, Holly Creek resident Helen Krebs decided it was time to take action regarding her 2004 Cadillac Deville: “My car was a ’04 so it was getting old. Covid had just started, and I wasn’t driving it enough.” It also had some maintenance issues that needed to be repaired. Helen ultimately couldn’t see herself going through the process of having it fixed up and put up for sale.

She learned that Christian Living Communities partners with Cars Helping Charities to help make vehicle donations easy. Whether it be a car, RV, boat or motorcycle, running or not, Cars Helping Charities will pick up your vehicle and send you a receipt. It’s as simple as reaching out to them and setting up an appointment. “It was a very easy process!” Helen says.

The proceeds of her car donation went to Holly Creek, the community she has lived in for 16 years. “Holly Creek has been special. This was a way I could benefit Holly Creek where I’ve benefitted from.”  

If you have a car you no longer need, or know a family member who has an unwanted vehicle, consider donating it. Contact Cars Helping Charities at 866-701-2277 or go to and fill out their online form and indicate Christian Living Communities. They offer nationwide car pickup and also take boats, SUVs, motorcycles, campers, vans and buses. Be sure to contact our Donor Relations Department at so we can be sure to credit the gift to the fund or community of your choice.
