Donate A Car

You can make a contribution to United Way of San Luis Obispo County by donating a used vehicle.  All you have to do is contact MissionCars.com and they will take care of the rest.  Their mission is to assist people in donating their vehicle, using the proceeds to benefit other ministries and nonprofits.  Mission Cars will determine the value of your vehicle, and do all the work of cleaning, advertising, showing, and selling it.  After it sells, they will send you a receipt for your taxes, and United Way will receive a check for half the net proceeds, and the other half goes to Alpha Academy, a local mentoring program.  This is also a very real, practical way to help people who may not be able to afford the newest cars.  If you’d like to donate, or would just like more information, please visit their website or call MissionCars.com at (805) 596-0258.
