Buffalo Harbor Lighthouse in Buffalo, New YorkHave you ever wanted to do something kind that would change the community you live in? You’re in luck because you can do just that when you donate a car to Wheels For Wishes. Your donation will help a child with a critical illness and will give them the chance to do something they have always dreamed of doing. They will be ever-grateful for your donation. Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Western New York.

Our charity vehicle donation program takes cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats. These vehicles are auctioned or recycled, and the proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Western New York. This helps them grant more wishes to kids into wishes for children in the Buffalo area and all over New York, including Depew, Dunkirk, Poland, Olean, Amity, West Seneca, and more.

Car donation is a convenient alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle, and it will save you time and money to do so. We’ll take care of all the work for you, so you don’t have to do a thing. Just give us a call and you can help to grant the wish of a child in Buffalo!

Don’t let your car take up space in your driveway when it could be making a wish come true for a local child with a critical illness.
