 Vehicle Donation benefits donors and the whole community

"We have used Charity Connection for our Building in Faith capital campaign.  In three years we have raised over $10,000 in donations.  The program is easy to use and convenient for our donors.  All we have to do is send out a thank you note. We will definitely continue to promote our relationship with Charity Connections to our donors." 

-Kim Calkins, Development Director, Our Lady of the Lake, Lake Oswego, OR

"Donating this vehicle to Our Lady of the Lake was an easy choice and an easy solution to getting rid of the extra car in our driveway.  It may have taken us weeks to sell my father’s old car, not to mention the hassle of running an ad and showing the car to prospective buyers.  Just one phone call and a form to fill out and Charity Connection took care of the rest.  The best part is the donation will help to build our new School and Parish Center." 

- Doug and Brenda Graham, Donor
