Make A Difference With Your Donation

Our partner, Make-A-Wish, helps children during one of the most difficult times of their lives.

Wishes are just what “Wish Kids” need to feel strength, hope and joy. When a wish is granted, it helps a child feel normal again.

No matter the wish, your donation can help make it happen! It is a great feeling, knowing that your donation is making such a big difference in the life of a stranger. Donating a vehicle is fast, easy and a decision you will not regret. Help a child in your own community by calling [chapter_phone] today or make your car donation online.
