Pasadena California Your unwanted car can be a wish in the making for a Pasadena child with just one simple phone call! Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. Our charity vehicle donation program helps turns cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats into wishes for children in the Pasadena area and all over California, such as Mojave, California City, Palmdale, Victorville, Bakersfield, Ridgecrest, and more.

When you donate a car to Wheels For Wishes, you give local children with critical illnesses the chance to explore and engage in all the great activities available right here in Pasadena. When you think of Pasadena, your mind immediately turns to Jan. 1,  the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl Game. The Tournament of Roses Parade is an incredible experience, featuring elaborately decorated floats that must be covered entirely in flowers or natural materials. While some people might take the experience of going for granted, the life of a child with a critical illness might find it to be an uplifting experience.

But there is so much more to Pasadena than that. Your donation could enable an excursion to a place like the Norton Simon Museum or the Pasadena Museum of Art. Maybe the Kidspace Children’s Museum in nearby Brookside Park or finding a show at the Pasadena Playhouse is more a wish kid’s speed.
