Cars2ndChance is about putting the proceeds of your vehicle donation to good use ...
Cars2ndChance was founded 13 years ago by local Rotarians David and Mary Kemnitz. The organization is completely administered by Rotary members, run by volunteers, and exists to benefit and serve our communities. We partner with community leaders to simplify fundraising, one car at a time.
ROTARY MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
What would it take to change the world? Rotary International is non-sectarian and the world’s first service organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. More than 1.4 million business and professional men and women make up the membership of these clubs. We give our time and effort to help others through service in our local communities. We also assist in projects throughout the world by supporting Rotary International, our parent organization.
