Giving Back

Good News GarageMotor Mania will be supporting Good News Garage.

Good News Garage (GNG), a program of Lutheran Social Services with operations in New England, is one of the first nonprofit car donation programs in the U.S. The mission of Good News Garage is to create economic opportunity by providing affordable and reliable transportation options for people in need. Since its founding in Burlington, Vermont, in 1996, GNG has awarded more than 4,000 reliable vehicles to individuals and families in need.

Unlike the vast majority of car donation charity programs, Good News Garage repairs as many donated cars as possible in order to provide them to low-income individuals who need transportation to gain access to employment, shopping, school and medical facilities.

Good News Garage tows donated cars free of charge and has car donation drop-off locations in Manchester, New Hampshire and Burlington, Vermont. You may donate your car online or call Good News Garage toll-free, at 877-GIVE-AUTO (448-3288). All vehicle donations are eligible for a tax deduction. To learn more, please visit our tax advantages page for more information.
