Hands of the Carpenter
Hands of the Carpenter serves women in need with automobile repair and maintenance to support the women’s desire for economic self-sufficiency.  For each woman Hands of the Carpenter serves, the need for automobile repair is immediate.  Without it, she can lose her job, without a job, she could lose her home and then suddenly a seemingly simple repair can lead to homelessness.

Donation Request
  • While vehicle donations can be a great tax deduction – that’s just the beginning.  If you are considering this type of a gift, you are on the road to changing one or more lives! Hands is able to accept most any vehicle (including cars, trucks, boats, RV’s and motorcycles) – running or not!  Hands will use your generous gift in one of three ways: We may provide minor repairs to safe and reliable vehicles (if needed), then provide it for to a single mother or widow in need.  If it is in need of major repairs and not safe to drive, it will be used for parts or sold with the proceeds going to provide repairs for women in need!  If it is a high value vehicle ($5,000 or more) or a luxury vehicle, we would likely sell this type of vehicle and use the proceeds for multiple repairs and/or place multiple vehicles with women.
  • To donate: Visit ehands.org, gather the title and keys, and Hands will provide necessary receipts and pick up, if necessary.
