Helping New Mexicans through charitable vehicle donations. Our family is dedicated to community service. We have combined our passion for community with our love for cars. It's as simple as that.
There are all sorts of places to donate a car, so why choose us? One Community Auto, LLC takes pride in helping the Land of Enchantment be a great place to live. By partnering with the local organizations, we are helping to empower groups that are changing lives of our fellow New Mexicans for the better. Not only are we saving donors cars from the scrap heap, but we’re providing much needed revenue for their missions. We can generate 5-10x more money for your car over the typical car donation services.
Owner Gary Peterson is a native New Mexican and a veteran. He founded One Community Auto, LLC in 2013 after spending 22 years in the United States Air Force working in logistics and transportation. He knew he had found his calling after helping the New Mexico Veterans Integration Center fix up and sell an old Camaro. He took a rundown car and turned it into $4,000 for the charity. He’s been helping donors and non-profits ever since.
We are proud and honored to announce that One Community Auto has been chosen as one of two winners in New Mexico, named as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam's Club. The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses, two in every state and the District of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses.
