Despite the age, the mileage on this car is surprisingly low – under 67,000!

Don’t the seats looks plush?

This particular car is part of the fourth generation of Newport, that ranged from 1965-1968. The Chrysler C platform was groundbreaking at the time, though you may have seen it on the ever-popular Chrysler Town and Country minivan.

Do you have an older car (it doesn’t have to be 50!) and want to support cancer research and patient support? The surprising possibility is a cancer car donation!

James L Maher Center Charity Spotlight

Did you know October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month? The James L. Maher Center works year round to support individuals with developmental disabilities. This organization is especially close to heart here at Car Donation Wizard.

James L. Maher Center

Founded in 1953, the James L. Maher Center fosters independence and opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. They help connect individuals with meaningful employment and celebrate the work of Americans with disabilities.

The Center started humbly with 13 families who wanted to provide a group home and day programs for their daughters and sons. Today? The Centers serves around 300 families in Newport and Bristol counties, and runs 11 group homes, and provides over 2,000 rides weekly.

Although the Center has grown immensely, their mission has not altered. They strive to “support individuals with developmental disabilities by helping them to increase their independence, self-esteem, productivity, integration, and participation with their local communities.”

This support takes many forms, including employment opportunities, day programs for about 150 individuals, transportation, and recreation. The Maher Center helps participants stay active, social, and helps foster a special sense of community.

We are proud to work with the James L. Maher Center for car donations and beyond. Two of our amazing team members, Frank and John, joined us through the Maher Center!

We also participate in their Blossoms program, where fresh blooms vases are delivered weekly to our office for a nominal fee, which can brighten the gloomiest workday.

If you want to help support the incredible work of the James L. Maher Center, we make it easy.

If you donate your car through Car Donation Wizard, between 75-80% of the gross proceeds will go directly to the Maher Center. This helps support their 11 group homes, their transportation fleet, and personalized training and support for all participants.

Give us a call at (877) 215-0227 or visit our website, and help support a great cause that’s close to heart and close to home!

Also known as the Champion of Yes, the Arthritis Foundation leads the fight against arthritis. They work in a couple distinct ways, which include political advocacy, scientific research, and help and support.

Their advocacy in 2017 helped pass 17 new laws that make life easier for those with arthritis, especially when it comes to access to medical care and treatment. Arthritis is the number 1 cause of disability in the US, the Arthritis Foundation fights to ensure people living with the disease receive the necessary benefits.

Juvenile arthritis has its own set of complications, and the Arthritis Foundation doesn’t just care for and empower youths but also cares for families and communities as well.

The Arthritis Foundation offers 137 local programs across 45 states and has 26 major research projects worth over $30 million. Their efforts have a significant effect on millions of Americans, but they do need your support.
