Your car donation impacts kids' lives.

We see the potential in every child and pull together the resources to make sure it is realized in full. School, family and community are all important components to a child’s development into a healthy adult and engaged citizen. As a registered nonprofit Jewish organization, we work together with our sister charity Oorah to make our vision a reality.

We accept donations of all kinds of vehicles, including cars, boats, RVs, motorcycles, trucks, busses and even airplanes! (Rvs, motorcycles and boats are subject to approval.)
You do not have to be home when we come to tow your car. You can leave your title and key in the glove compartment and we’ll take it from there. Remember to remove any personal belongings from the car beforehand.
We have a network of licensed and insured towing companies we coordinate with to arrange pickup of vehicles donated to Junk for Joy. In Houston, some of our professional towing partners we trust to get the job done well are U-Pull-&-Pay and Houston Auto Recyclers.
The license plates should be removed before pickup and returned to the DMV. You can find your local Houston, DMV’s info here.
Yes, we can usually accept a vehicle without a title. We will need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us instead.
The vacation voucher is a 2-night/3-day hotel stay voucher for 2 adults and 2 children with 50 locations to choose from. You can find out more about the voucher on our vacation voucher page.
