This July, golfers and motorcyclists have three great opportunities to help grant wishes in Iowa. This July there are two Wish Upon A Par events and one Wish Ride that you can attend to benefit Make-A-Wish Iowa. Your attendance will help grant wishes in places like Des Moines, Davenport, Cedar Rapids and everywhere in between.

Donate Your Car To Benefit Make-A-Wish

If you can’t attend one of these events, there’s another great way for you to make a difference for Make-A-Wish. Donating your unwanted car, truck, boat, RV or motorcycle to our car donation program Wheels For Wishes will help grant wishes for Iowa kids. We auction or recycle donated vehicles, and the proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Iowa.

We make car donation easy and hassle free. Your vehicle doesn’t need to be running or in perfect condition to make a difference. We accept nearly all makes and models in any condition. Since we offer free pick-up and towing, we can accept cars that don’t run anymore. Just give us a call at 1-855-278-9474 or take a moment to fill out our online car donation form today. Your car donation makes a difference!
