Christine Corbett, Director of Development of Make-A-Wish Central New York

Central New York has big cities, small towns, Lake Ontario and vast, beautiful open spaces. Even if you are in the smallest town in Central New York, Wheels For Wishes will come all the way to you to pick up and tow away your car for free. There are so many reasons to donate your unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, and the easy process will give you even more incentive!

First of all, the donating process is fast and hassle-free. We pick up and tow your car away for free, clearing up much-needed space on your property. Then you get a 100 percent tax-deductible receipt to use when filling out your 1098-c form on your taxes. The best part: local kids will get to live their dreams because of your generosity!

Child playing with bubbles The Finger Lakes are terrific areas for boating, so if you have been looking to upgrade from your unwanted boat, now is a perfect time. Whether you are south of Cayuga Lake in Ithaca or north of Owasco Lake in Auburn, boating is probably a huge part of your community’s lifestyle. You can use the tax deduction for your boat and trailer donation to make the down payment on your upgrade!

In the same vein, the Oswego River and Lake Ontario both border Oswego, and the water culture is fantastic! No matter how far north in central New York you are, Wheels For Wishes will still come to pick up your unwanted vehicle for free!

Located southeast of Onondaga Lake, and home to the Orange, Syracuse is a complex city in central New York. Whether you are ready to move on to public transportation because of traffic and parking, or you need a new truck to pull your boat to the lake, Wheels For Wishes makes the donation process hassle-free and fast!

That insignificant, unwanted vehicle of yours can make a huge difference in your community when you donate to Wheels For Wishes! It benefits you, but it also helps to make dreams come true for kids who really need it!
