Vehicle Donations

Your donation of a used vehicle will help Habitat build homes in partnership with families in need of decent, affordable shelter. Donate a car, truck, boat, RV or other vehicle to the Cars for Homes™ vehicle donation program by calling 1-877-277-4344 or visiting www.carsforhomes.org.

Although the Cars for Homes™ program is run by Habitat for Humanity International, all of the proceeds from your local donation of a used vehicle go to work locally for Flower City Habitat.
