National Federation of the Blind Launches Vehicle Donation Program

Baltimore, Maryland (March 19, 2013): The National Federation of the Blind (NFB), the oldest and largest organization of blind people in the United States, today announced that it has partnered with Vehicles for Charity to launch a new vehicle donation program.  The NFB’s vehicle donation program accepts almost any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles.  All donations may be eligible for a tax donation on your federal income tax return.

Dr. Marc Maurer, president of the National Federation of the Blind, said: “We are pleased to announce this new vehicle donation program.  By donating your vehicle to the National Federation of the Blind, you are helping to improve the lives of blind people across the country.  Your donation will go toward our work to increase the number of blind children learning Braille, to advocate for blind and other disabled persons to receive a fair working wage,  and to ensure a brighter future for all blind Americans.”
