Why Donate to the Salvation Army
You've seen it before -- the Salvation Army red kettle at Christmas. Perhaps you've even thrown a few coins in the bucket. And although this welcome symbol appears in the community for just a short while, its impact extends far beyond the holiday season -- changing lives, one at a time, every day, all year long. And it is just one of the ways the Salvation Army raises money.
Did you know, for example, that your used car could be a driving force in the war on drugs? Here's how. If you have an operable car, truck, RV, motorcycle, boat and trailer or golf cart, donate it to The Salvation Army Auto Auction. Your donation is tax-deductible and the proceeds go directly to help support the oldest and largest alcohol and drug rehabilitation program in the Augusta area.
The Salvation Army's Corps Salvage and Rehabilitation Center (CSRC), a substance abuse rehab program, helps men recovering from alcohol or substance abuse regain a productive lifestyle. The program involves counseling, work therapy, religious instruction and custom rehabilitation assistance designed to meet individual needs at no cost to the participant. This program is a long-term residency program with 35 beds. Men who successfully complete the program are in residence for up to 9 months. The CSRC program also has a probation and parole referral component; an average of 10 to 15 beds are used for men referred from the Department of Corrections.
The program receives no government or United Way funding, but for many years has relied solely on the public's donations. What better time than now to donate your used vehicle and receive a tax deduction. We assure you the proceeds from the sale of your used vehicle will be put to good use.
