Special Olympics North Carolina has two opportunities for drivers across the state to show their support through a vehicle donation program and a movement to create Special Olympics NC license plates.
A new collaboration with Insurance Auto Auctions (IAA) provides dealerships and individual donors the opportunity to donate any vehicle in any condition. IAA offers a unique pick-up service for customers donating their vehicle to Special Olympics North Carolina.
Featuring free pick-up, fast paperwork and tax deductions, IAA makes it simple for donors. A portion of the proceeds made will directly benefit Special Olympics North Carolina.
Vehicle donations can be made online or by calling 1-888-205-3420.
