A Habitat for Humanity car donation goes to helping build better futures for families in need. Recently a very generous donor decided to donate a 2011 Cadillac SRX to Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter County.
Another throwback to a car you may have ridden in with your dad or grandpa when you were a kid. This time we had a 1976 Lincoln Continental Mark IV donated to Habitat for Humanity of Western Wayne County, Michigan.
Just recently we had a beautiful 1961 Jaguar Mark IX donate to American Cancer Society. This classic Jaguar came to us from a generous donor in Laguna Beach, California. You can see from the picture that this car lived a privileged life in sunny southern California. With just over 27,000 miles, this car was kept in great running shape and was even treated to a new engine back in the early 1990’s. Due to the donor taking great care of this car it has held its value over the last 56 years. We expect it to earn quite a nice car donation for the American Cancer Society.

Just take a look at some of the technologies to watch for based on research by Forbes contributor Karl Brauer after attending CES and Detroit auto shows:
Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, I think we can all agree that this election season was rough. Now more than ever, we need people who will strengthen communities, fill our world with compassion, and bring hope to the hopeless. I’m so fortunate to work every day with people just like that. People whose full-time job is feeding the hungry, finding cures for cancer, building homes for the homeless, and filling our world with beautiful art and music. Continue reading
