    Cash For Clunkers Could Hurt Charities

    Cash For Clunkers Could Hurt Charities


    WASHINGON, DC (WUSA) -- The "Cash for Clunkers" program begins Friday, July 24. It's aimed at getting more buyers into dealer showrooms and gas-guzzlers off the road. But it could have one unintended consequence; hurting the charities that depend on vehicle donations such as Melwood based in Upper Marlboro.

    The non-profit worries that the new program to get old cars off the road will swallow up the supply of used vehicles it depends on. "Cash for Clunkers targets the sort of vehicles that are usually donated to Melwood," according to Janice Frey-Angel, president and CEO of Melwood. The tend to be older, high-energy, gas-guzzlers, larger vehicles, sometime the third vehicle in the family.


    I had thought this a while back, that this program would undercut many charities that were taking clunkers for a tax deduction. And it appears it is. What do you think of this?

    As for me, I am also concerned that this program is going to crush many classics and potential classic cars and we may lose a piece of our history in the name of fake stimulous.

    There are many charities in my regional area that take good used cars and rehad them for poor people. Poor people shouldn't be buying new expensive cars.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    LOL given your over-melodramatic statement that we may lose a piece of history just because someone decides to scrap their vehicle, I felt it quite appropriate and to the mark.

    Yes because EVERY poor person is driving around in a brand new vehicle

    Your statement is just as melodramatic.

    Thanks for sharing your obvious rant over nothing
