Modesto CaliforniaWhen you donate a vehicle through our donation program, Wheels For Wishes, you help Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada grant wishes for children who are facing critical illnesses. Since our program benefits Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada, we can help you turn your unwanted car, truck, motorcycle, RV or boat into a wish for a local child. Plus, we make car donation the easiest way to get rid of an unwanted vehicle. We take care of all the details for you and you get some great benefits in return.

Culture is a big part of Modesto. The city may be best known as the city where the 1973 film “American Graffiti” is based – it’s an homage to writer and director George Lucas’ upbringing in the city – and the city celebrates that every year with the Graffiti Summer festival. The Modesto Band of Stanislaus County (commonly known as the MoBand), is one of the oldest continuously performing bands in the country.

Best of all, you’ll get the wonderful feeling of knowing that your donation helps give a local child a reason to smile and an opportunity to just be a kid. Your vehicle donation will be priceless, as it helps Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada bring hope, strength and joy to local children when they need it most.
