The Eureka Reporter... Real News by Real People: "Vehicle donations to
benefit local nonprofits

Got a spare car that runs? Why not donate it to St. Vincent de Paul for a tax write-off?
The Volunteer Center of the Redwoods will soon receive a check for half the profit of a Dodge pickup recently donated for sale on its behalf.

�It�s a program that St. Vincent de Paul has had for a while,� said Tracy Jordan French, administrative assistant and a member of the fund-raising and marketing committee at the volunteer center. �(St. Vincent de Paul) offers it to local nonprofits.�

The volunteer center first got involved when former Volunteer Coordinator Leslie Lollich looked into it. Soon after, John and Hannah Bergen, who were moving out of the area, decided that it would be a good way to get rid of their vehicle."
