Georges River Land Trust is in the second year of a vehicle donation program, Cars for Conservation, in partnership with Eastern Tire & Auto Service, 70 Park St. Donations of cars, vans, trucks, boats and campers are being accepted now.

All proceeds from the sale of donated vehicles support local land protection, nature education and the 60-mile Georges Highland Path trail system. Since its inception a year ago, this program has raised more then $25,000 to support the mission of the land trust.

A terrific way to turn unwanted vehicles into preserves, trails and outdoor activities for the public, Cars for Conservation offers participants a way to avoid the hassles associated with selling or disposing of a used vehicle and a tax write-off for the selling price of the vehicle. All vehicles must have a clear title in the donor’s name. To get a donation started, call Alvin Chase at Eastern Tire, 594-5250.
