About America Can! Cars for Kids
Many individuals are deeply saddened by thinking about poverty in the developing world, but they feel that there is nothing they can do to improve the situation. Poverty is widespread, but we are unable to tackle it because of plenty of macroeconomic and social issues influencing people. This is why, throughout its history, Cars for Kids has prioritized funding for Texas schools that help kids finish high school. The organization is proud to be the country's best donation program and public auto auction.
