Some of the recent vehicle donated to support KCBX.

My wife Louisa and I have been long time supporters of KCBX. We rely on it for balanced news, NPR programs such as Fresh Air, and mostly for the music! We recently donated our car to KCBX—a 2006 Toyota Highlander that we bought new. It was the best car we ever owned, driving us all over the vineyards of the Central Coast and delivering cases of wine throughout California. It was still serving us well at 393,000 miles, but we knew it was time to move on. We are thrilled that our car could serve us and KCBX one more time! ~Bob Lindquist

"In December, we said good bye to our Chevy Tahoe - our beloved workhorse ArtMobile! Of course we decided to donate our car to KCBX - this is our third donation. It’s nice to know that we can easily and effortlessly make a difference with this gesture." ~ Bob and Kate Burridge
"I was happy to provide additional and much needed support for the best local & NPR station that I spend lots of time learning from, dancing to, relaxing to etc. My all time favorite DJ is Neal Losey of Morning Cup. His mix of music & info is the best and we are so lucky to get to hear him & his choices. Thanks to all at KCBX for the wonderful programming!" ~Lynn Scott
We decided to donate our very used and loved vehicle to KCBX... year 2000 and 250,000+ miles! This was an easy donation to make - my radio was tuned to 90.1. I love driving and was often in my car for work and errands, all the while listening to music, interviews, news... keeping me company and well informed. Seemed to make sense to me to donate my car to KBCX. ~Kate Burridge
We’ve been listeners for over 40 years and KCBX has long been an integral part of our lives. Meals would not be prepared without listening to NPR during the fixing. It’s basically the only radio station we tune into. So, it was an easy decision once we realized KCBX could benefit from a car donation. Thank you for being there. ~Cliff and Lois Elliott
"When it came time to retire our beloved Honda Hybrid we knew KCBX would benefit from the sale. We listen to many programs and are very grateful for public radio. They made the process of donation very easy. We said goodbye to our beloved car which had served us since 2003 and they picked it up and sent us a receipt so we could declare the donation on our taxes. Thanks you KCBX for all that you do." ~Karen Burish Wyke and Chuck Wyke
"I’d heard that NPR could turn donated cars into great programming and I wanted my gift to help our local Public Radio affiliate, KCBX. We need NPR stations now more than ever to provide us comprehensive, unbiased news. I'm glad my Lexus helped in supporting the station I love & trust. " ~Angel Russell
