CHARLESTON, WV -

The American Red Cross is launching a vehicle donation program through Dec. 31. It's designed to convert unneeded vehicles into Red Cross donations to help those in need. "People may think their old vehicle is worthless but the donation could be priceless to someone in need of Red Cross services in our community," said Erica Mani, CEO of the West Virginia Region in a news release from the ARC.

The program offers free pick-up and towing and a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles. The program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, tractors, farm equipment and more, in any condition - even salvaged. "This program turns clunkers into compassion and care," said Mani.

The vehicles will be sold by Insurance Auto Auctions. The proceeds will provide help for the Red Cross. According to the Red Cross, 91 cents of every dollar goes to fulfill humanitarian missions.

To donate a vehicle, contact the Red Cross online or call 1-855-927-2227.
