Car Donation Program

What makes the Adoption Rhode Island Car Donation Program different? All funds raised through this program stay in Rhode Island to directly benefit the hundreds of children in state care hoping to someday have a family of their own. If you have a car you are planning on trading in or otherwise getting rid of, please help Rhode Island children by donating it through our program.
