Boatangel Outreach Centers

Our Ford Taurus has been sitting in front of our house for almost a year now. Last November, when Craig was driving to work, the transmission went out. We'd kind of had the inkling that it was going and we even had it checked out, but were told it'll either drive for a long time, or it'll go out. Obviously it went out.

There are places that will accept Car Donations like our Taurus. They take the cars (running or not) and sell them to dealers or at auctions and use the money to fund charities like Boatangel Outreach Centers. As a donor, you don't have to worry about trying to sell your car, plus you get tax credit for a charitable donation! It's a win-win for all involved.

If you've never heard of Boatangel Outreach, please go check them out! They're doing fantastic things with the monies earned from people donating their cars. They have programs in California, Arizona and Ethiopia. Through a one-year training program, they've transformed former drug addicts and gang members into upstanding young men for today's society through the word of God. Boatangel is also sponsoring outreach centers in which homeless people are able to get away from negative influences like drugs and alcohol, all free of charge. What an awesome program!

Please, if you have a vehicle, RV, boat or plane just sitting around, please consider donating it to so it can help transform someone's life!
