Cars 4 Causes Supports Local Charities
The Kiwanis Club once more steps up to the front as a service and charitable organization with their program titled "Cars 4 Causes."
2015 is the perfect time to think about license fees and taxes in the new year. If there's a car gathering dust in the car port or elsewhere, Saddleback Kiwanis may have a solution. Saddleback Foundation is an IRS approved charity which accept donations of any vehicle to benefit local Laguna Woods Village non-profit charities, whether or not the vehicle is in running order. The club handles towing, if needed and the DMV paperwork.
A tax deduction for Federal and State Income Tax may be available for anyone who donates a car, along with the satisfaction and knowledge that a donation was made. The funds are used for Scholarships for local students and to help seniors and veterans through Kiwanis donations to the Foundation of Laguna Woods Village, Meals on Wheels, and Florence Sylvester Senior Center.
For information and help regarding vehicle donation, call Marlene Bridges at 949 215-1101.
