Donate your car!

(working or non-working cars accepted)

Navigating Northern Virginia without a vehicle can keep people from accessing jobs, and the opportunity to move out of poverty. A car can transform lives and help people support their families, reduce their reliance on subsidies and become more financially secure. Catholic Charities Car Ministry needs you to donate your car. These cars are given directly to those in need. We also accept non-working cars which support this ministry.

Catholic Charities Car Ministry gives hope

The keys to a manual transmission Honda Civic provide hope to Hamed Khawaja, who is from Afghanistan and has only been in the United States for three months. He is currently searching for work to support his wife and 11-month-old son.
