Owners of unused vehicles can donate them for tax breaks while also benefiting American Legion programs. Proceeds from each auction sale via Charitable Auto Rides Service, Inc. (CARS) will go toward Legion charities and programs.

The American Legion Vehicle Donation Program strives to accept most vehicles, including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment and farm machinery. CARS will pick up vehicles at a time convenient to the donor at no cost.

Those wishing to donate a vehicle should fill out a form online at www.legion.org/donate/auto or call (844) 453-4466. For more information about the program, go to https://legion.careasy.org/faq.

If you have questions about the donation program, such as when you’ll receive your tax receipt or if you need your vehicle title, visit www.legion.org/donate/auto for answers.

Did you know?

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
