How To Be Even Greener On St. Patty's Day

You know the tradition of wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day, drinking green beer (or other green beverages) and showing your Irish pride (even if you’re not really Irish). However, there’s other ways to truly be green on St. Patty’s Day, and it goes much deeper than the color you’re wearing and the beverage you’re drinking!

This year, you could choose to really go green for St. Patty’s Day so you can contribute to the green movement which will make the world a healthier and cleaner place to live. Plus, going green can also get you a great tax deduction during tax time next year.

Used Car Donation Is The Ultimate Green Gift

There is no question that used car donation is beneficial in many different ways. Not only does it get you a great tax deduction at tax time, but when you donate a car to charity, you are also recycling your car, which makes it a smart and eco-friendly option! 

It’s easy and resourceful to donate a car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.  We try to get the most out of every vehicle before recycling it, but if the vehicle can’t be auctioned off for a new family to drive, all of its parts will be reused—even the bumper, doors, engine, and transmission. When a car is recycled, no part goes to waste and every single piece of the car is put to use.

Donating a car makes for a better world, and when you donate your old car, you can personally get involved in making the world a cleaner place. Used car donation is beneficial to you, the earth, and a local child. When you donate a car to charity, you are turning your old car into a wish for a local child.

We're here to help, here's what to do

If your vehicle was one of the victims to Sandy, here is some advice on what you may need to know and steps to take:

1. Check with Insurance:

If you are covered with comprehensive insurance, you will be insured in this event and be able to receive enough to replace your damaged vehicle. Be patient though because insurance companies will be getting slammed with all of the claims in the next few months, so it may take several months before you can start the process.

If you only have liability insurance, unfortunately you will not be covered. In this case, jump to #3. If you are covered, see #2:
