Car Donation Is Beneficial


The best reason to donate a car to Wheels For Wishes is that the proceeds will go on to help your local Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana grant more wishes in your community. Northern Indiana is a great place to be a kid, but some children are held back from fun experiences by a critical illness.

Make-A-Wish is an organization that strives to help more of these children so they can have the chance to just be a kid again. Donating a car to Wheels For Wishes is an incredibly easy way to help your local Make-A-Wish reach their goals.

Car donation is also a great option for anyone who has an unwanted vehicle that they don’t know what to do with. If you’ve been holding onto an RV, boat, motorcycle, extra car or other vehicles that you don’t want anymore, Wheels For Wishes can help. Trying to sell or trade in a car is stressful. Keeping an old vehicle just wastes space. Instead, donate your unwanted vehicle to a great cause.

Our donation representatives are here to help with any questions you may have about donating a vehicle. Get in touch with Wheels For Wishes today to see just how easy it is to donate a car to charity!
