Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity Announces Cars for Homes Program
Did you know that when you “recycle” a vehicle you no longer use or need, you can help
Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity provide a hand up to a neighbor in need?
Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program accepts almost all vehicles, including
cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, snowmobiles, farm equipment and even
construction equipment. To learn more, visit habitat.org/carsforhomes or call 1-877-277-
Habitat’s national headquarters in Atlanta administers the Cars for Homes program, but
revenue from the sale of locally-donated vehicles is distributed to the local Habitat
Seventy percent (70%) of donated cars are able to be sold at auction. The remaining
30% are recycled by providing parts or melting them into steel.
Recycling cars keeps a huge amount of steel out of landfills—enough to build nearly
45,000 steel-framed homes every year. The energy saved each year is enough to power
approximately 18 million homes.
Please keep Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity in mind when you’re considering
donating a vehicle. You might not have time to join us on a job site, but you can still
make a world of difference.
