The vehicles donated by Online Car Donation are gifted to individuals such as battered women, families living in homeless shelters and military families. To apply for a free vehicle, this charity asks those in need to fill out an online application explaining their vehicle needs and situation. If Online Car Donation has an available vehicle, it contacts the applicant.
With Causes Network also give vehicles to low-income families. Additionally, this charity also requests applicants to fill out a form online explaining their situation. It reviews each application and determines if it can help on a case-by-case basis.
The Original 1-800 Charity Cars works a little differently. It asks those in need to make an profile on its website and explain why they need a charity car. The public then votes for those whom it believes deserve a car the most. The more votes, the higher a user's profile becomes, thus increasing the chance at getting a free vehicle.Learn more about Business & Finance
