Give your old car a new life building homes.

Sure, Habitat is a great place to learn how to use power tools.  But there are so many other effective ways you can be a part of the Habitat solution, too–and no matter how you decide to get involved, you have a positive impact for our work and for our partner families.  Case in point:  did you know that Habitat for Humanity accepts vehicle donations through the Cars for Homes program?  We’ll take your used car, truck, or trailer and use it to build and repair homes for Philadelphia families in need.

Long-time volunteer Tammy Meister has been lending her time on our homebuilding sites for years–and now she’s also supporting our work by donating her car through Cars For Homes.  She told us why her donation was personally meaningful to her:

Tammy Meister, who donated her car to Habitat through our Cars For Homes program.

“My car had special meaning for me because I inherited it from my grandmother when she passed away in 2004. She was an advocate for fair and affordable housing throughout her life. Although I was sad to recently have to replace my car, I was also happy to see it benefit an organization I wholeheartedly support and befittingly a cause my grandmother was also extremely passionate about.”

All vehicle donations are tax deductible, and vehicles registered in Philadelphia or the surrounding area will directly benefit Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia.  How does it work?  We use a partner company that collects your vehicle, sells it though auction, and sends all proceeds back to Habitat, which we can use to build and repair more homes in the city.

So donate your used car or truck today, and help support Habitat’s mission to provide safe, decent, affordable homes for Philadelphians in need!  You can learn more about Cars For Homes on our website, or start your car donation here.

Questions about donating your vehicle?  Contact Henry Randolph at or 215.765.6000 x17.
