Thinking about selling that old car, truck, van, motor vehicle of any type?  You know...the one you never drive or the one that really needs to be "junked"?  Instead, consider donating it to SAFE-T Crisis Center to help support victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.  If you have a clear title, it's as easy as 1-2-3; AND, it's tax-deductible!  A win-win situation for all!  Just give us a call.  We'll make the arrangements to pick it up or have it towed.  We'll work with our auto auction partner to get it sold.  Or, we'll take it to the local salvage yard to be junked.  After it's sold or junked, we'll provide a tax-deductible receipt for your tax purposes.  Join the battle against domestic violence.  To donate your motor vehicle, contact Mary Ferguson at 903-572-0973.


Is your civic/service, religious, professional, senior, or education group looking for a speaker?  SAFE-T can provide programs about domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, human trafficking, parenting, budgeting, and education programs as well as training for law enforcement social service workers, and nurses.  Programs can be developed to meet your needs/interests.  To schedule your program, call the SAFE-T office at 903-572-0973 and ask for Mary Ferguson.
