We’ve all heard it before: “It’s not where you’re going, it’s how you get there.”
Here at Capital CarShare, we agree. And we need yourhelp today to continue to serve our community.
What is carshare? It’s exactly what it sounds like. Carsharing allows members to reserve cars on a short-term (hourly or daily) as-needed basis paying only for the time they use the car and the mileage they drive. That means saying goodbye to car payments, insurance premiums, and fluctuating gas costs. It means access to reliable transportation for members in our community who can’t afford the ongoing cost of a vehicle, families with one vehicle, and individuals who need to supplement public transportation when their destinations are not served by bus routes. Best of all, it means cutting emissions that pollute our environment and creating a sense of community around the effort to go green across the Capital Region.
Our members depend on Capital Carshare more than ever in these uncertain economic times. We are living in a time when curbside pick-up is emphasized as a safe way to get needed food and supplies, and our service provides members with mobility and peace of mind. As a nonprofit organization, our focus is on the needs of our community. For example, here in Albany, twenty-five percent of households do not have access to a vehicle. Thus, this is an important service for not just our members, but the region as a whole.
With a tax-deductible donation from community members like you, we can continue to support low-income families seeking transportation equity. We can take carsharing to the next level, adding locations and even more eco-friendly and electric vehicles. Together, we can make carsharing an integral part of our Capital Region community.
Thank you in advance for your generous support for our organization. We can’t reach our full potential without the support of conscientious community members just like you.
