Generous Vehicle Donation to James L. Maher Center

Maher Center Vehicle Donation

We recently had the great pleasure to personally present funds from a vehicle donation, to a charity that is near and dear to the family at ARS, The James L. Maher Center.  This is an organization that is based right here in Middletown, RI. Its focus is to support individuals with developmental disabilities by helping them to increase their independence, self-esteem, productivity, integration and participation in their communities.  It is very special to us for a number of reasons. We have been so fortunate to work with 2 of the men from this organization. They work with us 3 days a week and are wonderful to work with.

We also take part in one of their services, Blossoms, where fresh flowers are delivered by one of their participants to our staff weekly.  It brightens our office and our days to see beautiful flowers on our desks. The proceeds for this program go right back into helping to support the Maher Center’s activities.

A member of our local community recently donated her vehicle to the Maher Center, a 2006 Lexus.  This vehicle sold at a nearby auction and we were very happy with the results of the sale that we were able to present to the Maher Center.  We presented the proceeds check to the CEO of the James L. Maher Center, Rose Morton, along with Deb Gardener (Director of Program Operations), Willow Hoaglund, and Tammy Mojkowski.  Two of their program participants and their direct support provider Mike were also on hand when the proceeds were presented. The funds will be used to help support the operation of their group homes, to help maintain their transportation fleet, and provide training and support throughout their various vocational, educational and therapeutic services.

We are very thankful for this generous donation to a wonderful organization, and for all of the donations we receive.  If you are interested in more information about the James L. Maher Center or in ways you can support them, please visit their website at www.mahercenter.org.  If you are interested in donating your vehicle, or reading about some of our other donations, please visit www.cardonationwizard.com or contact one of our car donation representatives today at (877) 957-2277.

World Water Day Focus

World Water Day Focus Blog - Car Donation Wizard

Importance of World Water Day to Car Donation Wizard

World Water Day (#worldwaterday) occurs on March 22nd annually and holds a lot of importance to us at Car Donation Wizard.  Sponsored by the United Nations, this day is “about focusing attention on the importance of water.”  This day is of particular importance to Car Donation Wizard because all of our employees live and work next to the ocean, in the city by the sea, Newport, Rhode Island.  We see firsthand why everyone needs to take responsibility in taking care of this amazing part of nature.

Global Struggle for Clean Water

It is not just about having a beautiful ocean, lake or river to live by, work in and enjoy.  Today over 2 billion people live without safe drinking water at home.  That is almost 30% of the world’s population that has their health, education and livelihood directly affected by this global water crisis.  There are issues directly related to demand, availability, quality and environmental impacts.
