Too Busy Being A Fashionista 

If you get too caught up shopping and run out of time for the event, there is still a way you can help Make-A-Wish Sand Diego grant wishes. If you notice while you are doing your spring cleaning that you have a vehicle such as an ATV, car, boat, or RV that you no longer use, you can donate it to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Sand Diego. Don’t go through the hassle trying to sell you vehicle, give us a call at 1-855-278-9474 or fill out our car donation form. It is as easy as that! Once you are finished you will receive a call from us within 24 hours to schedule the best time to pick up the vehicle. Take ease in knowing your vehicle will help grant a child’s wish in San Diego.
