Your Car Donation Makes A Big Difference For Illinois Kids

Make-A-Wish Illinois has been working endlessly to grant wishes for Aurora kids since 1985. Wheels For Wishes is proud to be a supporter of Make-A-Wish Illinois and takes pride in accepting donated vehicles, running or not, and using the earned proceeds to benefit Make-A-Wish. Vehicles are either auctioned off for lucky new owners to use, or they are recycled and reused. Vehicle donation is not only extremely kind and generous, but it also contributes to the green movement in an important way. Vehicle donation is the way to go!


Your unwanted car can play a part in granting wishes for a child from Naperville, Elgin, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, and more. A child might wish to explore Northern Illinois, or they may wish to see what the nearby Chicago area has to offer.

Wishes do come true, and in just three easy steps, you can be a part of it. At no charge, we will tow or pick up your donated vehicle, and it will be on its way to granting a wish for a local child in Aurora. It’s something you will feel great about for years to come.
