Instead of trying to sell a used car or pay to have it hauled away, donate it! You receive a significant fair market value tax deduction for your car donation in Chicago, which will benefit you a lot more than the low amount that a used car salesman will likely offer you. Plus, you can feel great about the difference you’ll be making for people in Illinois. The entire process to donate a vehicle in Chicago is rather quick and painless. In about 48 hours or so, you can have your car towed free! Heritage for the Blind will pick up your car so you don’t have to pay any towing fees. Heritage for the Blind also accepts your Chicago RV donations, your boat donations and even your motorcycle donations. And rest assured, even if your car is not operational, we can still use it for fundraising purposes so that the money for it will go to worthwhile causes.

Chicago, also known as “the Windy City”, has a population of about 2.7 million people. The climate in this city consists of cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers. Chicago has a gorgeous skyline and some notable buildings such as Trump Tower, the Chicago Building and Willis Tower that contribute to the skyline. Some natural features of the city are Lake Michigan and the Continental Divide. The Continental Divide is where the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes watershed meet. In Chicago, there are many individual communities because Chicago is separated into 77 areas, which can then be separated into more than 200 other neighborhoods. The most well known community is The Loop. Chicago is very culturally diverse and has districts home to Mexican Villages, Little Italy, Little Seoul, Polish Patches and several other districts like these.


The Art Institute of Chicago a unique art museum that has exhibits that display art such as paper weights, needle work, textiles and contemporary outdoor displays. Aside from these displays, there are also more traditional exhibits for film, photos, sculptures and many other types of art. If you like the feeling of open air Lake Michigan is a must, but Lake Michigan isn’t just a big lake. At Lake Michigan you will find relaxing beaches, islands to visit by ferry, light houses to explore and parks to catch your breath from all of the fun. Lake Michigan is an ecologically diverse area so make sure you pay attention to the surrounding wildlife. There is also the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. They have two orchestras that play: the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Civic Orchestra. There are also two conductors: Riccardo Muti and Pierre Boulezand and two composers: Anna Clyne and Mason Bates in addition to a chorus. There is nothing like the sound of an orchestra playing a beautiful, thought evoking piece. The chance to go to the Symphony, especially a very talented one, is an event not to be missed.
Chicago is an awe-inspiring city to visit. The Windy City is a great place to discover a diverse array of cultures, nature and auditory delight.


Heritage for the Blind offers many services to help those who are blind or partially sighted. They provide a multitude of recourses; some very notable sources are services for elders and resources such as publishing large-print books and Braille books. They offer telephone reassurance, a program in which someone calls regularly to check in on a senior citizen to make sure they are OK. When the call is not answered, the program goes through an emergency procedure to make sure that the person is safe. They also provide aids to come into the home; this enables an elderly individual to participate in day-to-day tasks in a safe manner. They also provide resources such as transportation assistance, a connection to Meals on Wheels, legal assistance and more. Heritage for the Blind’s large print books are available on their website for free download. These books cover many topics such as “Fitness and Exercise”, “Do I Have Lupus” and “Clearing up Cosmetic Confusion”, along with many other titles.
