Walk For Wishes Kick-Off Party

For the first time ever, Make-A-Wish South Carolina is having a Kick-Off Party for the annual Walk For Wishes! The Kick-Off is on Thursday, March 19, at 6 p.m. at the Fort Mill YMCA. The party will allow participants to register for the walk, meet other team captains, and get fundraising tips and materials. There will be complimentary snacks and drinks, as well as fun games and activities for the kids to enjoy. There will even be a special surprise guest for you to meet! RSVP for the Kick-Off Party if you're interested in attending.

Can’t Make The Walk? You Can Still Help Make-A-Wish

There are ways you can help Make-A-Wish South Carolina, without going to the Walk For Wishes. One way is to donate airline miles to help send Wish Kids and their families on their wish trips. Another way is to donate an unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish South Carolina. Donating a vehicle helps kids in Columbia, Charleston and throughout the Palmetto State. But it also saves you time and money that you would otherwise spend on getting rid of an unwanted vehicle. That unwanted vehicle will be transformed into a wish for a local child and gives you a great tax deduction at the same time. Wheels For Wishes is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donation is 100 percent tax deductible. Your car can make a wish come true!

To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, please call us at [chapter_phone], or fill out our easy online vehicle donation form. You will feel great about what your old car can do for a local child!
