How You Can Promote the Vehicle Donation Program

Below are materials that can be used to promote the vehicle donation program and ideas on how to use them. The National Federation of the Blind uses car donations to improve the education of blind children, distribute free white canes, help veterans, and so much more. Donors get a tax deduction and make a difference in the lives of blind people.

If you have any questions or would like to request materials, please contact Patti Chang at pchang@nfb.org or 410-659-9314 ext. 2422.
