Looking to get rid of your old tires? You can make a big difference for a person that can’t quite afford to get a new set of tires but still need to get places in a car. Here are some charities that help get your tires to the people that need it the most.

The Need For Tires During COVID-19

The need for old tires is at an all time high during the Coronavirus pandemic. Front line medical staff still get flat tires and other essential workers might not be making ends meet. With the need to go to work, doctor’s appointments, and other errands it can be hard to get around without a good set of tires. Donating your tires to these organizations can help our essential workers get where they need to get with no extra cost to them.

Donate To Modest Needs

If you’ve got a working set of tires to donate you can help out low-income workers that can’t always afford an automotive emergency. Modest Needs helps people that have no financial safety net. A big portion of the people that Modest Needs provides for need help with unexpected car repair.

This non-profit puts transparency and integrity at the forefront with their operations and administrative costs up front along with their great reviews. The donation process is fast and the simple application makes helping out your fellow citizens a great experience.

Recycle Tires For Cash

If you are trying to get a little compensation for you donation, recycling your tires is a good way to recoup some losses and stay environmentally friendly! Check out this article for a few different ways to make cash off of used tires. 

Donate Your Tires Locally For Other Purposes

Donating your tires doesn’t always mean that they will go back on a vehicle. Most tires that people consider donating are actually beyond repair for automotive use but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have any use for other purposes. You can donate your tires locally to schools and even parks to build things like playground equipment, football fields and even floor materials and tables.
