Donate Your Working Vehicle. Change a Life!


Catholic Charities of Central Colorado will gladly welcome donations of vehicles in good working condition. Donated cars received in good working condition are given to people in need of transportation. This allows them to get back and forth to work, thus helping them on the road to self-sufficiency.

Other vehicles are sold and the money raised helps fund our programs. Catholic Charities cannot sell non-working vehicles.
