Dallas, TX–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–December 27, 2005–Texans Can! announced today the beginning of a 24-hour telephone marathon through which individuals can donate their vehicles to help kids get a second chance at an education, and receive a 2005 tax write off. Phone banks will be operated 24 hours a day through midnight December 31. Donated cars, trucks, boats and RVs will be sold at local auctions to help generate much-needed funds to support Texans Can! The telephone marathon number is 866-835-5437.

“With the busy holiday season underway, we wanted to make it easy for folks to donate their vehicles to help at-risk youth with a second chance for an education,” said Grant East, founder and president emeritus of Texans Can!. “We have found that many caring citizens will donate their vehicles at year’s end if the process is convenient. During this time last year, more than 5,000 vehicles were donated.”

In addition to calling in, vehicle donations can be made online at http://www.TexasCarsForKids.org. Either way, Texans Can! will pick up the vehicle at no cost. However, the donation must be made by midnight December 31 in order for the donor to receive a 2005 tax write off. For donors who drive in their donations, they will receive a free genuine leather jacket valued at over $100 as a show of appreciation for supporting Texans Can!
