This plant was at the end of driveway, getting tossed by a previous owner. I'd like to care of it but I have zero idea what it is.

It looks like an Aglaonema, commonly called a Chinese Evergreen. Their leaves come in a range of different variegation, so while the picture on the Wikipedia page doesn't look very much like yours, an image search shows several that are closer.
This plant looks like the leaves have been scorched by the sun, and it may not have been getting enough water (mine looked like that at one point after being packed away during a home remodel and not watered for months). Fortunately, they're very durable when given the right conditions, so it should bounce right back if you can give it:
