Read what our supporters say about donating a car to Rawhide.

chose to donate my car to Rawhide because I feel strongly about the work they are doing with young men who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives.
– R. Krause

I have donated cars repeatedly to Rawhide and each time it was easy and, amazingly convenient.
– Ben D.

My husband and I live in Lacrosse, WI. We had a “well-used” car that we wanted to donate to Rawhide if they would come this far for it. Even during a holiday week, they were here within 3 days ! It was a very easy process.
– Sue T.
