I Need Help Donate


Donate or Buy a Car from the Mission!


For hours and directions, see below.

Have you considered donating your car to Portland Rescue Mission? Many people don’t realize they can donate and purchase cars from us. You certainly can, and what an enormous difference your donation makes!

In fact, the average car donation here provides around 600 meals to homeless men, women and children.

Your car donations give more than just a meal. When a family has a legitimate need, many times we’re able to help them because of your generous donations. A couple years ago, a young husband and father had massive heart failure and became terminally ill. During this already-painful time in their lives, the family’s car broke down. We were able to step in and help them out with a car – thanks to you.

We make it extremely easy for you to donate a car. The first thing we do is transfer the title, so that if anything happens during the donation process, you have zero liability. Then – if needed – we’ll tow it from you for free.

Once the vehicle arrives on our lot, it is thoroughly inspected by our professional team and given safety approval.


Dick Osborne, Sales and Donations Manager at our Drive Away Hunger car lot, is whole-heartedly committed to making your experience here excellent.

“We try to put a personal touch on buying and selling cars. We’re not typical used car salesmen; we are a Christ-centered ministry. We build trust with our customers and always show that we have integrity.”


Dick strives to maximize value for everyone involved: the donor, the customer, and each person that the Mission serves.

“I don’t look at these as donated cars,” Dick says. “I look at these as a sacrifice a family made to help feed and care for hurting people in need.”

Our car lot also serves as valuable job experience for several residents who are in the later stages of recovery in our New Life Ministry. 

We have dozens of vehicles on our lot every day, ranging in price from $800 to $12,000. We don’t have the operation costs of a regular dealership, so you will almost always find a better price here than your average dealership. And with our 30-point safety check, you can rest assured that your car has been thoroughly inspected.

If you or someone you know has a car they are looking to sell or give away, please consider the impact you can make on so many needy lives this season by giving to Portland Rescue Mission.

Thank you for your support!
