Donate Your Vehicle
Donate your used car, truck, boat or recreational vehicle
Become part of a great cause by donating your used car, truck, boat or recreational vehicle to Donation Line in the name of the New England Center and Home for Veterans! Donation Line accepts most vehicles, even if they don’t run. It’s easy and convenient; and you’ll be eligible for a tax deduction!
Why donate my vehicle?
It’s much easier to donate your used vehicle than it is to sell it yourself. And the tax savings might be even more than what you would receive from a trade-in. Your donation will go directly toward supporting the programs and services provided by the New England Center and Home for Veterans.
