Here at Car Donation Wizard, we are proud to announce a partnership with an incredible Rhode Island nonprofit. The East Bay Food Pantry and Thrift Shop fight hunger in Rhode Island. If you have an old car to donate and want to learn more about the Food Pantry and Thrift Shop here in the East Bay, you’re in the right place
Why You Should Support the East Bay Food Pantry
The East Bay Food Pantry opened in August 2009 and has been serving the community ever since. We deserve to live in a hunger-free community, and one way to support that mission is by donating your car.
Our beautiful Ocean State is more than just a tourist destination known for the beaches. In Rhode Island in 2018, weekly food costs for the average family of four rose by 15%, while weekly earnings only increased by 5%. Year-round residents of the East Bay who struggle with food insecurity can turn to the East Bay Food Pantry.
In 2018, there were a total of 10,989 household visits to the Pantry, which is the equivalent of 212,5540 meals worth of food. Every meal counts for families in need. On Fridays, the EBFP offers Fresh Food Fridays, which provides access to fresh produce.
The EBFP also runs a Thrift Shop, that sells a variety of items. All of the proceeds go to Food Pantry. The high-quality offerings include clothing, shoes, furniture, and houseware. Anyone is welcome to shop here, and know that their purchase will go a long way to stabilizing food-insecure families. A $20 purchase at the Thrift Shop can purchase 400 pounds of food for the Pantry!
If you want to support the life-changing work of the EBFP, did you know that you can donate a car, boat, RV, or motorcycle?
How To Donate Your Car
Donating your car is simple, speedy, and an effective way to support the local charities that need your help. Car Donation Wizard returns an average of 75-80% of the gross proceeds from your vehicle’s sale. That is more than any other donation program, and you can be assured your donation makes a difference.
After completing a simple donation form, we send you state-specific instructions on signing over your title. If you’re in Rhode Island and don’t have a title, there is an exemption for cars older than 2000! Our professional tow agencies will schedule a convenient pickup time, and your vehicle will be sold at auction. Within 30 days of that sale date, we will provide a tax receipt for the donation. The proceeds go to your charity, and you get a tax break!
