Since 1960, CARS volunteers have provided emergency services to the community, funded primarily by donations from the community. Your donations give us the ability to care for those with life-threatening circumstances, and provide vital equipment, facilities, and training opportunities for our volunteers.

CARS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible. You will receive a letter acknowledging your donation if you share your address with us. If you donate via PayPal, you will receive an email acknowledgement as soon as the payment has processed successfully.

Give online with your credit or debit card. It’s fast, secure, and uses our payment processor, NeonPay. Your receipt will be e-mailed to you immediately following the transaction. Click here to donate!
