Donate Your Car and Help Neighbors in Need

“Donate your car and turn your wheels into meals.”

Bay Area Broadcasters Give Not One, but Two Gifts to the Food Bank

Do you have an old clunker that’s taking up space in your driveway or garage? Are you moving soon and want to “lighten the load” by off-loading your vehicle? Are you interested in a generous tax write-off, while giving back to your neighbors who can use some help?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we encourage you to follow the lead of longtime Bay Area broadcasting duo Mike Sugerman and Janice Wright. They recently donated their car to benefit the Food Bank as they prepared to retire and relocate to the east coast to be closer to family.

Having covered Food Bank stories for years for KCBS Radio and KPIX TV, Mike and Janice were delighted to discover that the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank accepts donated cars – a perfect send-off for their Toyota that wouldn’t be making the trip. In fact, they were so excited, they gave us another gift…this song:

Vehicle donations play a critical role in some of the work we do here at the Food Bank.  Last year, people donated 33 cars to the Food Bank. We were able to turn those into $27,000, good enough to provide nearly 55,000 meals.

Donate Your Car
Donating your unwanted car or truck  is easier than selling it and you’ll receive a tax receipt for your contribution. You can donate your car by visiting Center for Car Donations or Car Donation Services. If you have any questions, please email our Donor Services or call (415) 282-1900, ext 353.
