National Car Care Month

Give Your Car a New Sense of Purpose


Is your old car sad and lonely?

Show it you care! Donate your car to a family in need.

April is National Car Care Month and it’s a great time to show an older or seldom-used vehicle that you still care.

Maybe you’ve bought a newer car, a fancier car, started riding your bike more often, or just haven’t been going out much lately.

Whatever your reason for not using a car very often, you can give it a new sense of purpose and show it you care by donating it to Ascentria’s Good News Garage program. Our goal is to repair as many donated cars as possible and award them to our New England neighbors in need, where they will be cared for, loved, and used by a new family for years to come!

What We Do

Good News Garage is a win-win solution for donors, clients, and communities. Car recipients are able to move forward in their lives, donors receive free towing and 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.

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.

Vehicle donations are accepted from all over New England and eastern New York with free and fast towing/pickup.

You can also make a cash donation to help us care for our community! Your donation helps us repair donated vehicles so they’re safe and reliable for the clients we serve.

Mark Car Recipient


Mark from Fall River, Massachusetts was awarded a 2008 Hyundai Sonata, thanks to a generous New England donor.

Mark explained to Good News Garage how having a car will make his life easier and expand his employment opportunities.

Although he said he’s happily employed, having a car makes it easier to be a dependable employee who is on time and independent, and the car expands future employment opportunities.

Instead of feeling like a burden on others, he’s looking forward to being able to help friends and family, and being someone they can rely on for a change.
