Our Time at The Honda Fest 2016 Car Show.

Honda Fest was on June 12th, 2016 and I was lucky enough to be able to go with Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk. This is a family friendly event (this includes dogs). While there, I was able to hang out with some really cool people and dogs too, including: Honda Laura, Honda Pro Jason, and we can’t forget Honda The Frenchie.

There were so many amazing cars at this event. There was racing, food, cars, family/friends, and music. Is there really any better way to spend a beautiful Sunday?! There were older cars, newer cars and everything in between. Two of the older cars that really stood out to me were the Honda Acty truck and the older Honda Civic. There were also some cars that were completely stock and then some that were far from it. I highly suggest going to a Honda Fest at least once, even if you aren’t a huge Honda fan, you will still enjoy the whole scene. The people are all so friendly.

Have you ever gone to a car show? What is your favorite one?

Also, I just want to mention that we wanted to share this fun post with you all because we like to switch it up on occassion. Is this something that you enjoy seeing? Should we do more of these in the future? We typically write about Car Donations or Vehicle donations, so I figured it would be nice to change up our usual posts.

Donation Checklist: The Many Ways To Make A Diffference

Donating to charity can sometimes feel like a daunting experience. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S. This number includes public charities, private foundations, and other types of nonprofit organizations, including chambers of commerce, fraternal organizations and civic leagues. With everyone looking for contributions and help it is difficult to know who you should donate to and in what form.

Car Donation Wizard Checklist for Donating:

1. Pick a cause that you feel passionate about. Last summer Car Donation Wizard took part in a Relay for Life event. We are partnered with the American Cancer Society with the  Cars for a Cure program so our staff felt extremely passionate about this event.  Check out  our fundraising success here.

Habitat for Humanity Jersey Road Trip Aims to Turn Cars into Homes

By Mel Fabrikant Tuesday, March 22, 2011, 01:15 PM  EDT, from Paramus Post

Habitat affiliates in Bergen County, Morris County, Newark and Paterson Announce Dates for Week-Long Event

As the days get longer and the trees bloom, what better time to make sure you have everything you need for your Jersey Road Trip. Maps, sunglasses, cooler… circular saw. Representatives from Habitat for Humanity International’s Cars for Homes program and four northern New Jersey affiliates of Habitat for Humanity announced dates today for the Jersey Road Trip, a week-long event that will be the highlight of Habitat’s car donation program in Bergen, Essex, Morris and Passaic counties.

From May 3-7, Cars for Homes program representatives will be on the road to build homes in partnership with low-income families in New Jersey. Their Jersey Road Trip will stop at each of four Habitat for Humanity work sites in Bergen, Essex, Morris and Passaic counties. In addition to pounding nails and hanging drywall, the Cars for Homes work crew and their hosts will aim to raise awareness of the Cars for Homes matching grant program.

Now through June 30, Habitat for Humanity International will provide a matching grant of up to $100,000 from Habitat’s Cars for Homes program, doubling the value of any vehicles donated to one of Habitat’s four northern New Jersey affiliates.
Vehicles from zip codes in Bergen, Essex, Morris and Passaic counties, as well as donations made by phone when the donor specifically asks for the funds to go to one of those Habitat affiliates, will count toward the matching program. Donors should call 877-277-HFHI to arrange for pick-up, or they can give online at www.carsforhomes.org.
The Jersey Road Trip will culminate in an event called ”Wheels for Deals” at the Morris County Habitat for Humanity ReStore resale outlet. The resale outlet program, like the Cars for Homes program, allows people to make tax-deductible donations of construction materials, appliances, cabinets, furniture and other household items, which are used to support local Habitat for Humanity affiliates.
Supporters of Habitat for Humanity throughout New Jersey and the New York Metro area are invited to attend the celebration at the Morris Habitat ReStore in Mine Hill, just off Route 46 at 102 Iron Mountain Road.
Information about Habitat for Humanity and how to get involved will be available. Representatives from the Cars for Homes program and the four affiliates involved in the Jersey Road Trip will be on hand.
The Jersey Road Trip schedule:
• Tuesday, May 3 – Build at a Morris Habitat for Humanity site in Summit
• Wednesday, May 4 – Build at a Habitat for Humanity Newark site in Essex County
• Thursday, May 5 – Build at a Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County site.
• Friday, May 6 – Build at a Paterson Habitat for Humanity site in Passaic County.
• Saturday, May 7 – Celebrate the conclusion of the Jersey Road Trip with ‘Wheels for Deals’ an event at Morris Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, the largest Habitat for Humanity home goods resale store in the area.
