1 Veteran, 2 Cars, 1 Million Heroes Helped

What do a 2004 Lincoln LS and a 2002 Audi have in common? To Troy Brown, they each represented a unique opportunity to provide hope to veterans in need of critical assistance. 

Troy, who’s a veteran himself, saw DAV’s Vehicle Donation program as a wonderful way to support our nation’s heroes while paying forward the invaluable lessons he learned serving in the Navy. A bonus was offloading his more than 15-year-old cars through DAV’s car donation program — which is fast, easy and features no-contact pick up and towing.

Disabled American Veterans offers many services for veterans and their families. The organization’s mission is to empower veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. Only with your support, whether it be through the car donation program or another means, can DAV: 

  • Assist veterans and their families with getting the benefits they earned

  • Offer care and support during tough times and disasters

  • Help veterans find meaningful employment

  • Provide transportation to medical appointments

  • And so much more

The auto donation process was so great for Troy the first time that when he wanted to donate a second vehicle, he once again reached out to Disabled American Veterans. 

“It’s a simple, easy process and the people at DAV are awesome,” he says. “They’ve been incredibly helpful to me over the years.”
Your tax-deductible car, truck, RV or boat donation can benefit a veteran in need of assistance. DAV’s Auto Donation program is an amazing way to turn your vehicle into resources that help ensure our nation’s brave men and women who served have the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms their sacrifices have made possible.
