Vehicle Donation Program

The purpose of the Vehicle Donation Program is to assist people to develop a plan and the skills to maintain and afford a car on going and to obtain reliable transportation so they can get to work. This program matches donated vehicles to eligible families. Donors may be able to claim the maximum fair market value of their donated vehicle as a charitable tax contribution.

Vehicles needing repairs are welcome. Mechanical diagnosis and repairs are usually done through a partnership with the Sandstone Prison Vocational Automotive Training students. If the donated vehicle isn’t fixable it will be sold as is or for salvage, with those funds being used to purchase parts for other donated vehicles.

Donors may be able to claim the maximum fair market value of their donated vehicle as a charitable tax contribution. Low-income households receive education on financial management and vehicle maintenance as well as a reliable vehicle for no cost. 

People who want to receive a donated vehicle are accepted on a REFERRAL BASIS ONLY through our partnering agencies: Employment & Training Service Centers, Workforce Centers and other employment agencies. 

Donors may fill out the Vehicle Donor Information Form  and email it to cardonation@lakesandpines.org or fax it to 320.679.4139 or mail it to 1700 Maple Ave E Mora, MN 55051. Contact the Community Services Department for more information.
