The Giving Garage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity founded in the Shreveport-Bossier area in 2019 by like minded individuals who recognized that adults with special needs and disabilities all too often fall through cracks in society. From a lack of socialization opportunities to work programs, once they age out of the public school system and its associated programs, there are few, if any, prospects for them. We seek to change that in our community.
Accordingly, we will be raffling off cars, motors, and other cool items to raise funds for programs including support groups, socialization programs, life skills training, and more for adults with special needs and disabilities. The ultimate goal being to build a recreational center in the Shreveport-Bossier area that can host such programs, and your tax-deductible donations will help make the dream a reality.
We will accept all cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, and virtually anything else of value. If you have a vehicle or something else to donate, or you wish to see available options for providing monetary support, please take the time to visit our Donate page, or consider making a recurring monthly donation as a member of our Pit Crew monthly donor club.
The Giving Garage Foundation seeks to build a better community by helping those who all too often fall through the cracks of society. By that, we mean adults with special needs and disabilities, many of whom are no longer eligible for services and programs previously provided by the school system. And this is not a passing interest, or a mere pet project, as the majority of our officers and board members either have their own special need or disability, or have a loved one who does. We understand the issues and struggles, and we want to improve our community by helping others in small but meaningful ways.
Listed below are our current programs and plans. If you would like to donate to support a particular program or goal, or volunteer to help in some way, please contact us at [email protected].
Facility (Name TBD): To house both socialization and work programs for adults with special needs and disabilities, we are currently fundraising to refurbish a facility. If you would like to donate funding, building materials, and/or labor, please email us at [email protected].
Crisis Closet: A supply of dry goods—clothing, food, toys, personal hygiene products—that can be provided to families suffering through a catastrophic event such as a flood, fire, or tornado. We hope to eventually expand to being able to provide temporary housing as well.
