This week’s vehicle spotlight is on a sporty red Vespa that helped support the Habitat for Humanity of Greater San Francisco! You too can support your local Habitat when you donate a motorcycle or other vehicle.
This bright, cherry-red scooter is a classic Vespa GTS, released 50 years after the launch of the Vespa GS (Grand Sport). The GTS (Grandturismo Sport) is a fresher, more powerful version of the original sport scooter. As far as athletes go, the GTS is far more Sporty Spice than Wade Boggs. The body style is a “vespino,” which is an adorably named smaller body that re-emerged a year before this model’s release.
The Charity: Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that focuses on providing affordable homeownership to families in need. They have a simple vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Future homeowners have only to make a down payment of “sweat equity.” That includes working on construction sites, attending workshops, or volunteering at their Restores. Their homeownership programs are not a temporary fix but provide stability for generations.
When you donate a motorcycle or any other vehicle, we make sure the proceeds stay in your community. This donor resides in the San Francisco area, so their donation went to support their local Habitat: HFH of Greater San Francisco.
This affiliate has built 248 homes in the local area since they became active in 1989. Affordable housing is incredibly difficult to find in the San Francisco area, so Habitat’s work changes people’s lives. Along with the impressive number of builds, they have also completed 286 Neighborhood Revitalization Projects since 2011. These include providing home repairs and improving parks, gardens, and community assets.
How to Donate a Motorcycle
Do you want to support the incredible efforts of your local Habitat for Humanity? When you donate a motorcycle or a car, we are happy to help.
It’s a simple process, we just need some information about the motorcycle and photos, and in no time your motorcycle donation will be towed away. You’ll receive a tax deduction, and your charity will receive between 75-80% of the gross proceeds.
