Washington County Red Cross accepting vehicle donations

July 23, 2008

Donations of cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, boats and RVs are being accepted at the Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Such donations can qualify the givers for tax credits, according to Maria I. Johns, director of financial development for the agency at 1131 Conrad Court.

That credit might be as high as $700, Johns said.

"We used to get vehicles in the past but the program wasn't very structured," she said.

Now there is a company that is taking care of everything for the chapter and giving the money to the chapter for use in Washington County, Johns said.

Those funds will help the local chapter provide food, clothing and shelter to local disaster victims.

Call 800-737-0265 to learn more about the program, including free pickup of the vehicles.

Johns can be reached at 301-739-0717, ext. 212, or via e-mail at mjohns@hagerstownmdredcross.org.
