When did Clunkers4Charity begin operating?

The program was preceded by another vehicle donation program. Clunkers4Charity has been operating for many years and the partner company, D&H Automotive sees about 60 vehicles per week of which about 1 or 2 are ideal candidates for the program as the repairs needed far exceed the value of the car. Vehicles are donated by individuals and organizations from throughout the Bay Area and Northern California.
