The United States has experienced much change, great struggles, and just recently several very scary threats. It has been a tough, fearful road yet with the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays rapidly approaching, an atmosphere of charity and giving seems to also emerge. It seems impossible to measure the value of the freedom our veterans provided. Let us not forget our American Veterans this holiday season.
The Vietnam Veterans of America is congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families. Founded in 1978, Vietnam Veterans of America is organized as a not-for-profit 501(c) (19) corporation. Organized in 46 states with 630 local chapters and over 50,000 members, their founding principle is “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”
Vietnam Veterans of America, Illinois State Council has been supporting Vietnam Veterans and their families for over 25 years. One of the VVA programs, beneficial to both the donor and recipient, is the Car Donation program. Cars are donated, sold, and the proceeds of the sale are used to support our veterans.

If the car sells above the $500 initial limit, the donor receives an IRS Form 1098-C showing the higher selling price.
This holiday season Illinois residents remember our Vietnam Veterans, give thanks and donate your car in Chicago, they deserve and appreciate our help.
We donated our car when we bought our new one (about three years ago). It was super easy!
