Donate through Amazon

World Relief Modesto accepts item donations through our Amazon wish lists! We know that some of our supporters live outside of the area or cannot drop items off on days we are able to accept them, so we created several lists of items that anyone can purchase. Items will be shipped to our office and provided to refugees who need them.

Donate Your Car


The refugees we serve have come from all over the world and are now living in suburbs where a personal mode of transportation is a necessity in order to get to work, appointments, the grocery store, and school events. Those who are able to secure a vehicle often drive several other refugees to work each day. This means that when you donate your car to World Relief, you can enable an entire network of refugees to gain independence!

How It Works

If your car is drivable, you can drop it off at our Modesto office. If it needs to be picked up, we will make arrangements free of charge. You will immediately receive a receipt for your donation. Within 30 days of the car being donated to a refugee, we will send you a letter explaining how and for whom your vehicle donation was used. Within 90 days, you will also receive the 1098c form for tax purposes.

We examine the car for safety and reliability in partnership with a local auto shop, and we determine if it is a suitable car for a refugee. Cars in need of minimal repairs are given to a World Relief client. Priority is given to individuals with full-time employment who are willing to drive other refugees to work. If the repairs would cost more than the car is worth, it may be sold. Don’t worry, 100% of the proceeds go right back into our car donation program.
