Donate A Vehicle In Lakeland To Help Make-A-Wish Children

Lakeland is a great place to be a kid. There are more than 35 named lakes in the city and much of the city's culture revolves around its many waterways.

Lakeland is also the home to Joker Marchant Stadium and the Lakeland Flying Tigers baseball team, as well as the spring training home of the Detroit Tigers.

There are also more than a half-dozen historic districts to see. But some kids won't ever get a chance to have these experiences because they are battling a critical illness.

With your help, Wheels For Wishes can help change that. Car donations to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida makes it possible for children with critical illnesses to have life-changing wishes granted.

Our charity vehicle donation program helps turn cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats in to wishes for children in the Lakeland area and all over Florida. Car donation is a convenient alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle, and most importantly, we take care of all the hard work for you, so you can just sit back and be proud of your generous decision to help a local child.

You can contribute to the wish-making just by donating your car, even if it doesn’t run!
