GREAT NEWS! The Anchorage Amateur Radio Club (AARC) / Radio Science and Operations Center (RSOC) has partnered with Vehicles for Charity. What does this mean? Well, now you have an opportunity to part with unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, campers, ATVs, UTVs, snowmachines, airplanes, heavy equipment, etc. at no cost to you! All proceeds benefiting the AARC / RSOC! Vehicles can be running or not!
Vehicles can be donated at any time and the process is easy. The proceeds of each donation benefit the AARC / RSOC, an organization devoted to supporting our community through emergency communications and STEM education.
The AARC / RSOC will use support from the vehicle donation program to help fund many worthy initiatives, including operation of the RSOC itself, repeater sites, purchase of new emergency communications and training equipment, resources for our training room, test gear, operation of our heavy emergency communication heavy rolling stock, etc. For example, a recent fundraising event outside of the vehicle for donation program enabled us to purchase a badly needed new set of tires for our Ford F-350 communications support/response vehicle.
HOW TO DONATE
The process is simple and you can donate by going to vehicle donation page at: http://www.vehiclesforcharity.org/Donate/AARC.html.
The donated vehicle is usually picked up in 3-5 days at the donor’s convenience. Please provide a clean title (if applicable) and make sure the vehicle has no major damage. A receipt for the donation will be sent as a follow-up in the mail which can be used for tax purposes.
Maybe it’s time to let go of that clunker you’d had in the driveway, or maybe even a herd of vehicles on the back of the property! We could sure use your help!
Happy New Year!
