You’re Helping Syracuse Kids

Your car may not mean much to you, but it could mean the world to a Make-A-Wish “Wish Kid” in Syracuse, Jamesville, Lafayette or Cortland. Syracuse is filled with fun for kids, such as the Rosamond Gifford Zoo and the Museum of Science and Technology. The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is home to over 900 animals ranging from insects to elephants! The Museum of Science and Technology can combine fun with learning with their hands-on exhibits and IMAX Theater.

WinterMaybe a child wishes to enjoy a Syracuse Chiefs game at the Alliance Bank Stadium, and maybe they could even get an opportunity to play catch with their favorite team. Or maybe a child would prefer to enjoy a family camping trip at the beautiful Pratt’s Falls Park. Whatever a child wishes for, Wheels For Wishes can help to make it happen, but we need your donated car in order to make that possible!
