as we approach labor day...


Anyone who works with veterans will tell you that second to medical and mental healthcare, employment is a critical factor for veterans making a successful transition to civilian life. Often there is no exact fit for a veteran’s military occupation to a civilian job. With less than one-half of one percent of the population serving in our military, employers often don’t know how to recognize the skills a veteran has acquired.  Nobody gets the meaning of having a “mission” better than a well-trained military service member.

everyday heroes


Every day people serve this country to protect us, keep us safe. They aren’t trying to be Superman or achieve great accolades, but simply do what they’ve been called to.  They ask for nothing but are owed so much. Whether a snowmobile, jet ski, tractor, car or truck, the donation process is simple and makes a difference. The tax benefit is just icing on the cake.

Yellow Ribbon Vehicles is committed to serving veterans and their families through the grouping of non-profits, called the Yellow Ribbon Network, who all strive towards this goal. This is met through your vehicle donation. Donating money is not always easy, however having someone come and pick up your old unwanted car couldn’t be any easier. With your donation of any vehicles like old cars, trucks, boats, jet skis, farm, and construction equipment we are able to auction the vehicle off and give the profits straight to the Yellow Ribbon Network.
