Donationline.com Benefits Local Elderly
If you have lost you car, truck, van, motorcycle, boat, watercraft, or RV to Hurricane Sandy, (or just don’t want/need it any longer!) you can donate it, take a tax deduction, and not worry about disposal fees. Your donation will directly benefit Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ), keeping the funds local, supporting the frail elderly living in Ocean County. There are no hassles, no strings, and all vehicles are accepted, running or not. Donations accepted online at www.donationline.com or calling 1 877-227-7487ext.2479. Donors must select Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey to receive the donation. Arrangements will be made with donor to pick-up the vehicle, and CVCJ will mail a letter directly to the donor confirming their tax deductible donation.
Betty of Beachwood, whose husband passed away last spring, recently participated. “My husband was always helping people and would be happy knowing that the money from the car will be used to help so many. It makes me feel good too”, Betty said. “We have been participating in the Donationline.com program since early summer” said Lynette Whitman, Executive Director of CVCJ. “It is a safe way for individuals to make a donation, keeping the funds local to help their elderly neighbors living in their own community” said Whiteman.
CVCJ is a non-profit (501c3) interfaith agency whose mission is to assist the frail and homebound elderly with everyday tasks enabling them to remain independent in their own homes. All services provided are free. Over 1000 volunteers assist more than 2000 senior citizens each month with transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping, relief for Alzheimer’s disease caregivers, reassuring telephone calls, friendly/pet visits. CVCJ has two locations serving Ocean County: Whiting, 30 Lacey Road, and Toms River, 253 Chestnut Street. For more information and to learn about volunteer opportunities, call Mary O.
