VEHICLES 4 VETERANS (V4V)
Our mission is to donate a working vehicle to as many local San Joaquin County, California veterans as possible that need a vehicle. This vehicle will be used to go to work in, to transport their children to and from school/activities, to bring their family to medical appointments, etc.
We are seeking donated unwanted used vehicles, donated towing, donated auto repair work and also financial donations from the community to help us to collect and repair vehicles. We donate these repaired vehicles to local veterans in need.
Our plan is to give away 1 free vehicle to a veteran each month. We would like to sign up at least 12 different auto repair shops that will completely donate their services to the V4V program, this way they only will donate their work to do 1 vehicle per year.
We will start the program when we have at least 4 local auto repair companies in the V4V program. Which means at first we will do one vehicle every quarter (1 every 3 months).
This program is being sponsored by a 501c3 charity known as SMR and will be run by the VeteranHelp.net veterans group. Both SMR and VeteranHelp.net are San Joaquin County, California veteran charity based organizations. So, your donations will be tax deductible.
We feel that this program will greatly enhance the lives of local military veterans and their families, and it also gives the community a chance to show their appreciation and support to military veterans who have given so much to our Country.
Thank you for your support,
Michael L. Emerson, V4V Founder and Chairman
