Pass Your Keys to a Neighbor in Need

Good News Garage awards refurbished, donated cars to New Englanders who need reliable transportation.

Donate today!



Nearly 6,000 vehicles awarded to local families since 1996.

Donors qualify for free towing and generous tax deductions!

Unlike most car donation organizations that sell every vehicle and hire a for-profit middleman, Good News Garage allows you to maximize your impact, because our mission is to repair and provide as many cars as possible to local families. Car recipients are able to move forward in their lives, donors receive free towing and qualify for a generous tax deduction (up to fair market value if the car is awarded to a family), local automotive businesses are utilized and communities are strengthened!

I am a single mother of 4 who, like many, have struggled financially. Thanks to your kind gesture, my life and the lives of my children will now be a little less hectic. I am extremely appreciative and would like you to know you have changed our lives. I can't wait for the day I can pay it forward.

  • Thank you for donating your car to Good News Garage and for giving my family of five the opportunity to be in a safe vehicle. My family has gone through a lot recently, and getting this vehicle relieves a great amount of stress for us.

  • Because of this opportunity, I have been able to leave domestic violence, provide for my daughter, and raise her in a healthy environment. I have been taking my life back. Thank you for the work that you do and the kindness that you have shown. There are no words to express my gratitude.

  • "Having a car has made my life so much easier -- easier to go to work and school to make a successful living for my family. I was able to go back to the community college that I used to attend years ago. I want to really thank you guys for assisting me in a time that I needed you the most."
