Donate your vehicle to the Friendship Village

dragondelsurVFVP-USA board member Stephen Abatiell lived out of his old Volvo during many a back-country ski trip in Yosemite National Park. During a road trip to Mexico, the car assumed the nickname “Dragon del Sur” (though, thankfully, it was not a fire-breathing dragon). When his car was finally ready for the junkyard, Steve traded it in for a donation to Friendship Village.

Donating a car, truck, RV, boat, motorcycle, or other vehicle to Vietnam Friendship Village Project USA is easier than you might think, thanks to CARS™, a service that “streamlines vehicle donation programs for non-profits, helping them to maximize profitability.” (The acronym CARS stands for Charitable Auto Resources.)

The first step in donating a vehicle to VFVP-USA is filling out a secure online donation form at http://www.donatingiseasy.org/CarDonationInfo.aspx?CID=3204. A representative will contact you shortly thereafter to guide you through the next step in the donation process. If you prefer to contact CARS by phone, call 855-500-RIDE or 855-500-7433 and one of their representatives will help you arrange your donation.
