Manchester’s Good News Garage hosting donation days and donation challenge

MANCHESTER – December means Donation Days for Good News Garage. To celebrate this season of giving, we have planned numerous activities to thank our donors and encourage others to support our “Wheels to Work” program that transports local families toward self-sufficiency. We invite you to join us.

Help us meet our donation challenge of receiving 550 vehicles in December and take advantage of the 2017 tax deduction if you donate by Dec. 31! Vehicles provided to a family qualify for a tax deduction up to fair market value. We accept any vehicle including: cars, vans, trucks, luxury vehicles, antique and specialty vehicles, wheelchair-

accessible vans, campers, RVs, boats, jet skis, snowmobiles, motorcycles, mopeds, golf carts, scooters and riding lawnmowers.

Good News Garage provides free towing and we offer three easy and fast ways to donate your vehicle:

• Online at:

• Call toll-free: 877.GIVE.AUTO (877-448-3288)

• Stop by our 340 Granite St., Manchester office anytime Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., to donate in person. For your convenience, we will be open on Saturday, Dec. 30, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to accept your donations.

Other events planned for Donation Days include expanding the JumpStart program to provide up seven vehicles to local families, awarding a daily prize to the first person who “drops-off” a donation in person and running open houses every Wednesday in December.

“The Good News Garage team is committed to providing our donors with quality customer service while helping local families move forward in their lives,” said Bob Buckley, director of operations. “92 percent of our donors report that they would donate to Good News Garage again. When you donate to Good News Garage everyone wins.”
