3 Reasons to donate your car to Drive Away Hunger


It’s time for a new car and you’re thinking of selling your old one, but have you considered donating it to Portland Rescue Mission?

Here’s 3 big reasons to donate it to Drive Away Hunger:


  1. You get the maximum tax deduction. Because we repair cars and sell them, many donors get a higher tax deduction than offered by other non-profit organizations that simply send donated cars to auction. Everyone benefits! You get a big tax break, and hurting men, women and children in need get the care and services they need. Ready to donate? CLICK HERE.


  1. You provide food and care for over 500 people! A typical car donation to Portland Rescue Mission helps feed and care for more than 500 people in need! Drive Away Hunger is one of our largest sources of revenue towards our services and addiction recovery programs. Learn more about what we offer at Portland Rescue Mission HERE.


  1. Towing is available. Is your car a huge hassle to even drive to us? No problem! Give our staff a call and we will make arrangements to have your vehicle towed. Call 503-906-7673 or email us at donation.desk@pdxmission.org.


“I can get behind the vision of Portland Rescue Mission; I’d much rather donate to them. I called them up and the lady on the phone was totally friendly–just enthusiastic, so grateful, so pleasant. [She] made me feel like a million bucks.

“My experience with donating a car to Drive Away Hunger was easy, simple. It made me feel great and they gave us a great tax break. I was surprised––that was the cherry on the cake. Then They came to pick up the car!”

-Andrea, Car donor to Drive Away Hunger
