Unlike other car donation programs, the Orland Park Church Car Ministry distributes donated vehicles to needy families in the Chicagoland area, which allows for a tax deduction on the full private value of the vehicle.
Non-cosmetic repairs are coordinated on donated vehicles before they are given to qualified applicants on the waiting list. All vehicles are distributed in “As-Is Condition” with no warranty or claims regarding the overall condition of the vehicle. Vehicle recipients must plan for and have saved finances for unexpected repair expenses.
Through these efforts, Christian mercy is shown to those in need of transportation to get to employment, children to day care and school, families to church, and other necessities of daily living.
Car distributions are generally reserved for households without a car, not families wanting a second car or young adults considered as dependents.
