Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program celebrates Earth Day by recycling donated vehicles

TOMS RIVER (April 10, 2018) – With Earth Day just around the corner, Habitat for Humanity International invites everyone to recycle their used cars and vehicles to help low-income families realize the dream of homeownership by donating to Habitat’s Cars for Homes program.

Cars for Homes is Habitat for Humanity’s national vehicle donation program that provides donors a quick and easy process for donating cars, trucks, boats, RVs and other vehicles to help build homes in partnership with local low-income families in need of decent, affordable shelter.

Habitat’s Cars for Homes program encourages interested donors to retire and recycle older, fuel-inefficient vehicles.

“We’re incredibly proud that through the Cars for Homes program, Habitat is able to both help more families gain access to safe and affordable housing and support a cleaner world by recycling vehicles into reusable steel,” said Marcia Rundle, director of Habitat’s Cars for Homes program.

Vehicles can be donated anywhere in the U.S. Donors may call 877-277-HFHI (877-277-4344) or visit www.carsforhomes.org to arrange for a pick-up. Following pickup, donors are provided with a tax receipt for their charitable contribution.
