Honor Mom with a car donation


ST. GEORGE – This week, when so many Americans are spinning their wheels trying to think of the perfect Mother’s Day gift, the National Kidney Foundation wants to remind of a unique gift – you know the broken car she’s been begging you to get out of her driveway? Donate it to Kidney Kars.

Towing is free, and it’s tax deductible.

Your Kidney Kars donation will honor Mom by giving her back the garage! Funds raised through Kidney Kars benefit Utah programs of medical research, patient services, organ donation and public education. You may also find yourself in the express lane for a tax deduction.

Every day, 110 Americans choose the National Kid-ney Foundation’s Kidney Kars Program. Vehicles are sold either at auction or for parts, with 83 percent of the proceeds supporting the programs of the National Kidney Foundation of Utah.

For more information, or to donate your car, van, truck or boat, call (800) TOW-KARS (869-5277) or donate online at www.towkars.org.

When I get rich.

Dear Kidney Foundation,  On behalf of my mother, I would like to thank you and the donors who help pay for the programs you provide to kidney patients.  I don’t know if anyone who doesn’t have kidney failure truly understands how much stress even the smallest help can alleviate. The Kidney Foundation’s help to my mother and I lifts a grave burden from our shoulders.  We are so very thankful there are such caring people in your Foundation.  People like this are very hard to find now days.  My words can’t really express how I feel and a simple thank you is all I can offer.  But if I ever become rich, believe me, the Kidney Foundation will be the first on my list to ‘give-back’.  Thanks again for your help.
