The Season Of Giving
Sherwood Auto Repair is a family-owned business. We live and work in the area and feel it’s important to support causes that help strengthen our community. In the spirit of giving, we’d like to share some of the organizations we support and encourage you to join us in caring for our community.
Giving Time, Talent, and Treasure
Non-profit organizations welcome financial contributions, but you don’t have to donate money to support your favorite cause. Goods or services are often needed by charitable groups, and volunteering is another great way to help. Find a cause you care about and give them a call. They’ll be happy to share opportunities with you and let you know how you can help.
Throughout the year Sherwood Auto Repair holds a position on the advisory board of the PCC Automotive Department. In this program we help train the technicians of tomorrow. By sharing our expertise with students we’re able to pass along our knowledge, developing the skills they need to pursue successful careers in the automotive industry.
The PCC Automotive Department accepts donated vehicles!
Donated automobiles are educational tools that provide real-world, hands-on experience. If you’re interested in donating a vehicle or providing financial support please reach out to Bart Ouchida, Automotive Technology Instructor at 971-722-4884.
Another organization we support is the Portland Rescue Mission. Since 1949 they’ve been committed to “breaking the cycle of homelessness, addiction, and despair in the lives of hurting people in need.”
Besides cash donations, the Portland Rescue Mission has a special program for automobile donations called Drive Away Hunger.
A typical car donation to Portland Rescue Mission helps feed
more than 652 people in need! Charitable car donations also help provide job training in automotive operations for participants in the organization’s recovery program.
Remember, donating a car to a registered nonprofit organization is tax-deductible (be sure to check with your accountant for details).
The Oregon Food Bank’s mission is to “eliminate hunger and its root causes...because no one should be hungry.” They do this by distributing food they collect from farmers, wholesalers, retailers, manufacturers and people like you throughout their statewide network of 21 regional food banks.

Animal welfare is a popular cause for many Portland residents. There are many nonprofits in the area dedicated to helping animals. We choose to support the Oregon Humane Society.
The Oregon Humane Society rescues, heals and adopts more than 11,000 pets each year. We never place a time limit on how long cats, dogs and other pets stay at our shelter. OHS relies on donations to support our adoption, education, and animal cruelty investigation programs.
OHS also accepts vehicle donations. Click here for information.
