Your $10.00 donation will provide all this food for a Senior in need. The Senior Assistance Center can stretch your financial donation further than you might think. Through our Grocery rescue program, commercial donations, and our purchasing power, we are able to take each $1.00 donation and turn it into $10.00 worth of goods and services.

Do you have an old car, truck, or motorcycle that you’re not using any more? By donating your unwanted vehicle to the Senior Assistance Center you will receive a great tax deduction while providing a significant donation in support of our programs.
The Senior Assistance Center is partnering with Driven to Donate, operated by Step 13, a nationally-recognized recovery program in downtown Denver that offers men the opportunity to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction through a program that requires sobriety, work, and accountability. The men at Step 13 help process donated vehicles, providing them with the dignity of work, while they work hard to maximize the value of each donated vehicle.
Donating our vehicle could not be easier. The program includes free towing, and any vehicles, whether they are running or not, are gratefully accepted. You will receive all required forms to claim the tax deduction for the sale price of your vehicle.
You can donate your vehicle online by visiting DriventoDonate.org or by calling 303-296-9020.
