Kelley Collects Cars to Raise Money for Charity Featured

By Staff Writer May 10, 2019 161

A Kelley Blue Book program routing donated vehicles to Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS) has topped the $1 million mark since its inception nearly a year ago.


A total of 556 nonprofits received $1,252,206 in revenue as a result of the donation program.


Of that amount, St. Jude Research Hospital alone garnered $469,639.


The vehicles collected in the program are sent to auction and the proceeds sent onto the non-profits designated by the donor. Since last April,, 2,507 vehicles have been donated and of that number, 933 were designated to benefit St. Jude’s.

Kelley Blue Book added the option to provide car owners an option for getting rid of a vehicle they no longer need, while at the same time benefiting a charity that matters to them. The program enables car owners to choose from the more than 3,500 non-profits in the U.S. and Canada that partner with CARS to receive proceeds from vehicle donations
