Vehicle Donation Program
The purpose of Lakes and Pines’ Transportation and Vehicle Donation Program is to assist people in obtaining reliable transportation so they can get to work. Lakes & Pines is a Limited Used Dealer through the State of Minnesota and will accept donated used vehicles to be granted to eligible households after the vehicle has been repaired. Donors get Kelly Blue Book value on their donation receipt, unless the vehicle is sold or salvaged. Low-income households receive education on financial management and vehicle maintenance as well as a reliable vehicle for no cost.

Applicants to receive donated vehicles are accepted on a REFERRAL BASIS ONLY through our partnering agencies: Employment & Training Service Centers, Workforce Centers and other employment agencies.

Donors can fill out the Vehicle Donor Information Form here and email it to cardonation@lakesandpines.org or fax it to 320.679.4139 or mail it to 1700 Maple Ave E Mora, MN 55051.
