Charity Cars Non-Profit Organization
Charity Cars or C4C, is a national non-profit organization that operates primarily in the Midwest areas of Kansas City, Wichita, Omaha, St. Louis and Springfield, but is still a nationwide organization. The founder saw that people would be able to help themselves if they had transportation means.
To apply for a car for yourself or someone you know, fill out the online application, which requires a story about how the car would improve your (or the recipient’s) life. Typical recipients include people with disabilities and medical conditions and those in transitional housing.
Because cars are large items and pricey to ship, most charities that offer cheap or free cars are locally based. Find them by contacting churches, the Department of Human Services or welfare agencies. Each program will vary in its qualifications, terms and conditions for receiving a car.
