Not only is car donation a great way to help someone in your community, it’s also a convenient alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle. Plus, we are able to accept almost all vehicles regardless of whether they run or not. When you donate your vehicle through Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada, you can feel great knowing that it will help Make-A-Wish bring hope, strength, and joy to children right in your community.


Help A Reno Child Enjoy All Nevada Has To Offer

Reno has so much to offer for kids and adults alike. With classic car conventions, local NBA development league and Minor League Baseball teams, The Great Reno Balloon Race, and beautiful Lake Tahoe, there’s plenty to see and do in “The Biggest Little City in the World.” Not all kids can enjoy all that this area has to offer if they are facing a critical illness. Luckily, you can help Make-A-Wish reach more deserving children and grant their wishes when you donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes.

While many wishes involve traveling to far-off places, some Make-A-Wish Wish Kids want to stay close to home and enjoy all the fun things to do in their home state. Children who love sports may wish to spend the day with their favorite Reno Aces player or Reno Bighorns player. Animal lovers might wish for a fun-filled adventure at the Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary or at the Sierra Safari Zoo. Other kids may wish for a vacation exploring Lake Tahoe’s many hiking trails or ski slopes. You can help make wishes like these come true when you donate your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes.
