I have tried to look up the local Purple Heart organization several places without success. One Texas report said it claims to have a level of income below the threshold that requires public reporting. I have been curious about what percent of a donated vehicle's value actually goes to the group, and what it really does with its money. Anyone with answers please email me. Thanks!
