A family member of mine has an older Mercury Marquis Car that she no longer uses which she would like to donate to one of those charities that come and tow the car away for free. It is in excellent condition, runs great, has very low mileage for its age, but is not insured or inspected so we can not drive it to the charity location. Anybody have recommendations, websites links, or contact info to such a charity in the Freehold NJ area that will come to her house and tow it away? She would like the car to go to a good cause and it just seems like too much hassle to sell it since it is such an older model car.

Thanks for the input!

If it doesn't work out, the local rescue squad or fire department may take it. They use them for drills.
