The organization provided a number of turkeys to be given away by the Salvation Army

Driving Successful Lives, a local nonprofit 501 C3 took the time to donate 50 turkeys to the Salvation Army for holiday meals and feeding the hungry. “Supporting the Salvation Army is a key initiative of our organization” said Director Mark Maupin.

“We have seen countless people over the years benefit from the service and the good that this organization does. Participating in the food drive that happens weekly with this organization gives us great pride in knowing that we are assisting to feed children and families in the community.” Turkeys were purchased by Driving Successful Lives and donated to the Salvation Army and received at their Flint location.

About Driving Successful Lives

Driving Successful Lives’ mission is to facilitate car donations so that veterans, homeless families, children, those with addictions & other non-profits can benefit from fellow citizens giving-forward.

Every time a person gives to the charity of their choice it may also create a tax benefit for them. The money, the items, and the real property that they have donated to non-profit institutions throughout the tax year may be tax deductible which means that they could end up being the difference between a good tax
return and a great tax return. Depending upon the kind of donation and the type of charity or foundation that they chose to donate to, the tax deduction it creates could be very helpful for reducing the amount taxes that they owe. Many successful and wealthy people state that at least to a certain degree, a part of
whom they are and what they have become comes at least in part from the practice of giving. Contributing to charities can be a very convenient way to reduce taxes.
