2020 findings report that of 18 million American citizens, about 7% have served as active military, naval, or air service personnel. Among that percentage, Hampton Roads has one of the largest military populations— with hundreds of servicemen and women transitioning back into civilian life every month. Donating to Virginia veterans can help guide them through the turbulent challenges faced during this change and ensure they receive proper care and support for years after their service.

Eggleston Warrior Bridge engages the employment and success of Veterans with disabilities in Hampton Roads. By connecting them to their desired career path, we support veterans’ efforts to become employed, self-sustained, and productive members of our community. But where do you come in? Let’s break down how you can amplify the cause.

How To Donate To Veterans

When connected with the right organization, donating can be simple. The general process is as follows:

  • Do your research. Find charities that match your ideals to address veterans’ struggles and commit to one you want to support.
  • Confirm reputability. Investigate the charity’s achievements, programs, members, and resources to determine their trustworthiness.
  • Consider your options. Identify if you would like to donate money to the organization or time and skills as a volunteer (or both).
  • Make your donation. Whatever the amount, pledge your gift to make an impact!
  • Monitor your contributions. Whether money or property, keep a record of your charitable donations for taxes.

How Your Veterans Donation Helps

Donating to veterans is an excellent way to give back to those who protect our country. Your donation not only helps Virginia veterans but provides family support as well. Pledging as little as a dollar can be the difference they need to access care, comfort, therapy, and medical treatment in facilities around the world.

Veterans experience many life-changing scenarios during their duration in the military, which can affect their physical and mental health and their families. Many veterans return from service with a physical or intellectual disability, mental illness, or lack of assets that can lower their standard of living. By donating, you reduce their isolation and elevate their knowledge, skills, and hope.

Challenges Your Donation Tackles

By understanding some of the challenges Virginia veterans can face, we can work to build a better future. Here are just some of the problems that your donation can tackle:

1. Unemployment  

Many disabled veterans have immense trouble finding work once they return home. If they have joined the armed forces straight out of high school, they also lack the education to compete with other applicants. Though veteran unemployment rates have decreased this year, it is still at 2.5% as of 2023 reports, with veterans with a disability as high as 5.6%.

2. Homelessness

Among the U.S. homeless population, a staggering 13% are veterans. Many who suffer from mental illnesses like PTSD are at high risk of alcohol and drug addiction, which can contribute to homelessness. In other scenarios, disabled and unemployed veterans can struggle to keep up with their mortgages and other finances, eventually losing their homes.

3. Physical injuries/disabilities

The dangers of war can leave many veterans injured or disabled. Living with a debilitating injury or physical disability can be difficult to maintain—from increasing medical bills, lack of support, decreased productivity, unemployment, and more. In 2021, 1.9 million U.S. veterans reported a service-induced disability of 70% or higher. The influx of physical disabilities has caused the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to be unable to keep up the number of applications—backed up for months or even years. This leaves many veterans stranded without the proper help.

4. Poor mental health

Sadly, suicide and depression rates are still high for veterans. This is due to the social stigma of seeking medical treatment, causing PTSD and other mental illnesses to remain undetected until adequately diagnosed. If you or someone you know may be struggling with their mental and emotional health, know this: seeking help is the strongest action you can take for yourself and your loved ones. Connect with the Veterans Crisis Hotline for support. 

5. Lack of education

As previously mentioned, veterans who join the armed forces after high school lack the college education needed to enter the job market. Some veterans may also feel that heightening their education may be financially daunting. Your donation can help them make that initial step.

How Eggleston Can Help

With a person-centered approach, Warrior Bridge helps veterans integrate back into society with self-sufficient ways to secure immediate employment.

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. Each person can react differently when an injury impacts it, significantly affecting their quality of life. But a brain injury does not have to be managed alone—Eggleston offers a full continuum of person-centered services to help people living with a traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury work towards achieving their goals.

Our services specialize in various media to help individuals find brain injury resources to own their independence and integrate back into society. In addition, we offer them a safe space for developing their skills and finding productive and meaningful ways to regain control of their lives. In this guide, we will break down brain injuries, the functions of brain injury services, and the potential benefits they propose.

What is a Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from a sudden bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body or an object penetrating the brain. All painful bangs to the head do not cause a TBI. A TBI can cause short-term and/or long-term issues with normal brain function, such as cognition, behavior, or physical limitations. More severe TBI cases can sometimes lead to permanent immobility or death.

A brain injury can also be non-traumatic. This kind of brain injury is caused by a lack of oxygen (anoxia), exposure to toxins, pressure from a tumor, stroke, infections, and more.  

Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries may be primary or secondary, meaning some cases can be immediate while others may appear over time. While primary brain injuries are discovered following the incident, secondary brain injuries gradually show within days, weeks, or months. Secondary brain injuries may also result from the treatment used after the initial head trauma.

Along with whether a brain injury is primary or secondary, two types of TBI are classified based on the kind of injury.

Penetrating TBI (or open TBI):

This is caused when an object pierces the skull and brain tissue, like a bullet, bone fragment, sharp weapon, or shrapnel. Penetrating TBI damages are usually localized to one area of the brain.

Non-penetrating TBI (or closed head injury; blunt TBI):

This happens when something with powerful force shifts the brain within the skull. Some relevant incidents include a fall, blunt force to the head, or motor vehicle accidents.

Brain Injury Services and Their Functions

Brain injury services help people with an injury gain all that life can offer with a comprehensive, personalized approach. People’s needs vary depending on their brain injury severity and personal goals. At Eggleston, we offer brain injury services to the community to focus on strengths and abilities, not disabilities.

Case Management

One of the programs offered to people with brain injuries is Case Management. This service focuses on minimizing institutionalization and maximizing the client’s potential to utilize resources for remaining in the community. Examples of these resources include insurance, transportation, home care, housing, medical care, and employment, among others. The Case Manager will also collaborate with other organizations to maximize assistance for clients and their families effectively. They will additionally cater to each individual’s unique service plan and goals with guidance, education, and focused insight.  

Case Management empowers individuals with brain injuries by identifying the steps needed to achieve a fulfilling lifestyle with community resources and other helpful services or providers. If you live with a brain injury, you can choose the location you wish to meet with your Case Managers—such as a restaurant, library, or the comfort of your home. 

Beacon House

Eggleston provides a clubhouse for people with an acquired brain injury (ABI): Beacon House. Here, there are no “patients” but dedicated members who collectively work together to achieve their goals. It is a program designed for individuals to capitalize on their strengths. Members can benefit from this program by rebuilding social relationships, for friendship, family, employment, and self-advocacy. This restorative environment makes recovery possible by giving members the individual support they need.

beacon house group

Support Groups

Research shows that social skills can develop after a TBI, elevating the need for better social environments among people with brain injuries. Whether managing your brain injury alone or with a family caregiver, it’s important to socialize with other people to drive productivity and happiness. Eggleston offers support groups for people with brain injuries to amplify their voices and support groups for caregivers, family, and friends.


Eggleston: Shaping a Better Future

For over 67 years, Eggleston has engaged in education, training, and employment for adults with disabilities. Our mission is to create a safe place for individuals with disabilities to promote a healthier, happier, and more productive life.

Are you considering making a tax-deductible car donation? If so, you’ve got several situational components you must consider. 

For instance, you must assess legitimate car donation charities. After all, some supposedly charitable organizations aren’t reliable, or their values don’t align with yours. You want peace of mind knowing your generous gesture benefits a great cause. 

Factors such as logistics, transportation, and how to properly donate your car to receive your tax deduction also come into play.

Below, we’ll detail everything you need to know about making a tax-deductible car donation.

Choosing From a Wide Range Of Legitimate Car Donation Charities

Research is crucial to finding legitimate charities for your tax-deductible car donation.

However, figuring out the best place to donate can be difficult. The internet is a vast information highway. You can feel weighed down by the abundant options.

So, how do you sort the wheat from the chaff, so to speak? What separates a cause you can get behind and believe in from one that doesn’t quite hit home? These are challenging questions since charity is innately good, and choosing one from the other can seem like a guessing game. 

We suggest first thinking about what you’re donating. In this case, it’s your car. Therefore, it would make sense to be more specific instead of broad and work with legitimate car donation charities in the automotive sector.

For example, say you’re a resident of Hampton Roads (or in the surrounding communities) in Virginia and want to donate your car or truck to a more local cause. Eggleston is an easy and rewarding way to make the most of a vehicle you don’t need anymore.

Why Choose Eggleston To Donate Car For Tax Deduction?

Keeping local and specific with your donation–and choosing Eggleston–is often more manageable than other, more generalized charities.

By staying local, you often don’t need to deal with outside agencies that make the process less impactful to the community. Thus, no commission or percentages are doled out. Instead, your donation goes directly to the cause – Eggleston. 

Additionally, the vehicle is auctioned locally, ensuring that local bidders benefit. Every dollar yielded from the eventual sale helps fulfill Eggleston’s long standing mission.

Who Are You Helping With Your Car Donation To Eggleston?

When you donate your car to Eggleston, we’ll accept it, whether running or non-operable. 

From there, people with disabilities in our community benefit from jobs repairing, detailing, and preparing their vehicles for auction. 

This process offers these hard-working, eager individuals additional job experience and hands-on education they otherwise wouldn’t receive. Moreover, they’ll develop the necessary collaborative and people skills to improve workplace relationships and customer interactions. 

Helping develop our team means you’re contributing significantly to the local workforce. The knowledge and experience our team members gain from your donated vehicle could be a jumping-off point to a successful, long-lasting career that previously wasn’t possible. 

How Much Tax Credit Do You Get For Donating A Car?

Upon selling your vehicle, your donation amount depends on the selling price. 

If somebody buys your former car or truck for over $500 at one of Eggleston’s local auctions, you can deduct 100% of the selling price. 

Conversely, if your vehicle sells for $500 or lower, the “fair market value” gets deducted up to $500. 

How Do You Claim Your Tax Credit? Is There Any Paperwork?

There is paperwork required to ensure your car donation is–in fact–tax deductible. 

Note that your total itemized deductions must exceed the standard deduction that aligns with your filing status. Furthermore, be mindful that itemized deductions include home mortgage interest, state/local taxes, out-of-pocket medical expenses, charitable deductions, etc. 

Consider speaking with your tax advisor before donating to see if itemizing makes sense.

When an Eggleston tow driver picks up your car, they’ll leave you a “Thank You” card, and you will receive a “Thank You” letter in the mail. Once the vehicle is sold, we’ll issue a settlement letter. We’ll also ensure you receive an IRS 1098c form before January 31st of the following year to confirm the sale price and date. 

To learn more about this process, examine IRS Publication 4303, a vehicle donor guide. Eggleston has provided this blog for guidance and it is the responsibility of each person that donates; to determine the appropriate steps for submitting to the IRS.

How Do You Hand Over Your Donated Vehicle?

Is your soon-to-be donated vehicle inoperable? If so, Eggleston will schedule a tow with you if you’re from Hampton Roads and outlying communities.

You can also drop your donated vehicle off at our Auto Center at 3525 N. Military Highway, Norfolk, VA, 23518.

Determine eligibility by giving us a call at 757-963-8393.

Do You Need Lots Of Paperwork To Make A Car Or Truck Donation?

While receiving your tax deduction of up to $500 does require a little bit of paperwork, the act of making a donation is considerably more straightforward. To that point, you only need a valid title for your car or truck.

If you’re missing a valid car title, you may need to ensure you’ve paid off the entirety of your car loan, or you can request a duplicate title from the DMV.

This requirement isn’t complex, but it is ironclad. We cannot accept a car donation without the car title due to the various legal issues it would raise. 

Your Car Donation Will Go Far With Eggleston

Eggleston is proud of our car donation program. We’re dedicated to helping people with disabilities in our community develop necessary life skills that help them thrive and flourish.

Beyond the feel-good benefits of knowing you’re doing the right thing, you don’t need to go through the hassle of selling your car after donating it to us. Whether your vehicle is barely functioning, not functioning at all, or just in the way, we’ll take it off your hands and auction it off–simple as that.

Are you looking to upgrade your vehicle? Do you have a car you no longer use? Trying to get rid of an older vehicle? Instead of selling your car for a small profit, why not donate a vehicle to charity instead? Thousands of charities across America use vehicle donation programs to raise funds for their missions. However, when donating a vehicle, there are a variety of steps and procedures to follow to make sure it is done properly and with a legitimate charity. At Eggleston, we have run a vehicle donation program for over 20 years, so we understand the multi-step process and benefits of donating your vehicle. 

Steps to Donate a Car 

To donate a vehicle to charity, there are a few steps you need to follow, but our knowledgeable staff can walk you through the process to make sure all the necessary paperwork is completed so the donation is done correctly.

1. Sign Title Over to Charity

On your vehicle’s title, there is a section where you can “sell” the vehicle to someone. In this section (Section A), you will sign your name and then put the name and address of the charity you are donating the vehicle to, as well as the odometer reading. Within this area, there is also a line that has “sales price” on it; fill it in with the words “charitable gift.” 

2. Give Title to Charity

Once you have signed and filled out the necessary information in Section A, you will hand over the title and the vehicle to the charity. They will then complete the donation by filling out their name, address, and signature.

3. Remove License Plates

The license plates on the vehicle are registered to your name. To ensure there are no issues, you will want to remove the license plates and take them with you. This also allows the charity to register the vehicle in their name. 

4. Notify the DMV

Once you have completed the donation process, you will need to notify the Department of Motor Vehicles that you no longer own the car and that you have donated it. This allows them to fill out the necessary paperwork in a timely manner. 

5. Notify Your Insurance Company

In addition to notifying the DMV, you will want to notify your insurance company that you have donated the vehicle as well. Since you no longer own the car, you will no longer need insurance on the vehicle. 

Bonus: Receiving a Vehicle Donation Tax Deduction

While not part of the multiple steps for donating a vehicle, a nice bonus for donating your vehicle is that you can receive a vehicle donation tax deduction. Once your vehicle sells or is auctioned off, you qualify for a $500 vehicle donation tax deduction. If the vehicle sells for more than $500, you will receive an IRS Form 1098-C in the mail. This can be used for a tax deduction on that year’s tax returns. Again, the helpful staff at Eggleston can walk you through the process and ensure that all paperwork is properly filed. 

Donate Your Car to Eggleston

Are you interested in donating a car in Virginia? Why not donate your vehicle to Eggleston? Eggleston is a charity specializing in education, training, and employment for persons with disabilities.

Document shredding is an important but often overlooked element of the document storage lifecycle. When you are searching for “document shredding near me,” or a document shredding service, Eggleston is the company for you. Our services help fill a need in your business while also engaging and helping the community around you. So, when you need document shredding and want to help the community, look no further than Eggleston in Norfolk.

Why Document Shredding is Important

In today’s technological world, document shredding is generally not considered a necessity. However, document shredding is still important, and in some cases, it is required. There are three main reasons why document shredding is important: trash laws, legal requirements, and identity theft. 

Trash is Considered Public Property

According to the Supreme Court Case of California v. Greenwood, trash (placed on the sidewalk/curb) is considered to be public property and is not protected under the Fourth Amendment. This means that any trash placed on the sidewalk can be searched since it is considered public property. Because of this, it makes it easy for identity thieves to find paper with identification information and use it to their advantage. 

It is Legally Required in Some Industries

In some industries, such as the legal, medical, governmental, and financial fields, there are laws surrounding the appropriate use and discard of identification information. These laws require the companies to properly shred any documents that may contain identifiable information prior to disposal. 

Identity Theft is Also Tied to Paper Documents

According to a report by Baker Hostetler in 2015, one in five incidents of identity theft was related to paper documentation. This can include a lost/stolen wallet, information in the mail, and theft from the trash.

How Shredding Keeps Your Information Safe

In order to protect confidential information, documents are completely destroyed with document shredding. The best document shredding services will also provide a certificate of destruction in compliance with any laws surrounding your industry. Similarly, high-quality document shredding companies will keep all of your documents confidential throughout the entire shredding process. So you don’t have to worry about security breaches.

Best Place To Shred Documents

How to Choose the Best Document Shredding Service

When it comes to document shredding, choosing a reputable company that can offer you the solutions you need should be a priority. There are a variety of factors that you should take into consideration to make the correct decision. These factors include transparency of pricing, secure document shredding, bulk document shredding, a certificate of destruction, and customer-driven solutions.

Transparent Pricing To Shred Documents

Before working with you, a reputable and trusted document shredding company will supply you with transparent pricing. Instead of getting hit with hidden fees and upcharges, make sure the company is open and honest with you about the cost of shredding.

Secure Document Shredding

Document shredding is necessary for several industries, including medical, legal, and government offices. When you don’t have the time to complete shredding in-house, you need a trusted partner to do it for you. You need to ensure that your documents are secure from collection to destruction; every step of the shredding process should be monitored and secured.

Bulk Document Shredding

Whether you are a large company or a growing one, check to see if your document shredding company offers bulk document shredding. With this service, you can rest assured that all of your documents are taken care of. This also ensures that you will have a reliable partner to turn to no matter how large your company grows.

Certificate of Destruction

A trustworthy and reliable company will stand behind the work they do. Companies that offer certificates of destruction do just that. With a certificate of destruction, your business has a record of the completed service and an assurance that it met all security and compliance rules.

Customer-Driven Solutions To Shred Documents

When looking for the best place to shred documents, you need to search for a company that offers customer-driven solutions. How do they go the extra mile? Some companies offer multiple ways for documents to be collected, such as pick-up or drop-off services. Similarly, companies can offer monthly or weekly arrangements which allow you to stay on top of all your document shredding needs. Additionally, the best companies will offer other services, including document scanning or conversions.

Adults with Disabilities Working Together

At Eggleston, we believe in empowering citizens at work, at home, and in the community. That is why we have spent the past 65 years providing education, training, and employment for persons with disabilities. Even with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), many adults with disabilities have difficulty finding or keeping employment. Thankfully, Eggleston is here to help serve our community through employment, residential, and support services. 

Eggleston’s Community Employment For Disabled Adults Program

One of the main ways that Eggleston provides disability employment services in Hampton Roads, is through our community employment program. The first step for this program is getting a referral to our resources. Then, our team will help find and place adults with disabilities in a suitable work environment. 

Getting a Referral

A referral for our community employment program must come from one of three places: the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), the Virginia Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired (DBVI), or the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS). These state agencies assist individuals with disabilities by helping them find work. In order to participate in our community employment program, you must receive a referral from one of these agencies. This can help individuals find jobs for physically disabled adults. Visit your local office in order to find out how you can receive a referral. 

Finding Jobs for Adults with Disabilities

Once you have received your referral, Eggleston’s staff of experienced specialists provide one-on-one support. Through situational assessment, job development, job placement and training, and follow-along support, each individual client can reach their goal of obtaining employment. 

The goal of situational assessment is to get a better understanding of what type of job the individual would enjoy and be able to perform. With job development, the staff member helps prepare the individual for job expectations and the interview process. Through placement and proper job training for disabled adults, individuals are placed in jobs and supported by staff members in performing their duties. Once the individual is more comfortable in their job setting, they will receive follow-along support and have someone to turn to if needed. 

Working for Eggleston

In addition to providing a community employment program, Eggleston is also an employer! This means that you can work for Eggleston. In order to do this, you have to receive documentation of your disability and apply.

This documentation can be in the form of a letter or report from a physician, psychiatrist, or psychologist stating the nature and severity of the disability. 


Once you have the proper documentation, you can apply for a position at Eggleston online or at our office. Our online application is available on our Careers page.
