If you live near the coastline and you get to enjoy the beauty of living near the coast, remember that it’s important to do your part in helping to keep it clean. At Wheels For Wishes, we practice recycling through our vehicle recycling program by turning vehicle donations into wishes for local children. We like to keep vehicles out of landfills so we help to put them to better use instead. We also like to keep our supporters informed of other ways to give back and live in an eco-friendly way. This Sept. 20, we have the perfect opportunity for you to get involved.

In the United States, almost 13,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year. Because of this large number, it is important that we celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month every September to help bring awareness to childhood cancer and to help to raise funds for cancer research. You can help to make a difference this month with a car donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.

As summer comes to an end, you may find that the weeks have flown by too quickly for you to do everything you set out to do this summer. If one of your summer goals was to find a meaningful way to give back to your community, there’s still time and Wheels For Wishes is here to help. Through our auto donation program, we benefit Make-A-Wish and help them grant wishes for children who are facing life-threatening medical conditions. Donating is easy, hassle-free, and allows you to dispose of an unneeded vehicle while also giving back to your community!
How Does Donating A Car Help?
On average, Make-A-Wish grants a wish every 38 minutes. But even with that amazing rate, they aren’t able to reach every child waiting to have their wish granted. Donating your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes is a great way for you to help them reach more of these deserving children. When you donate a car, truck, RV, boat, motorcycle or almost any other type of automobile, Wheels For Wishes turns it into wishes for children in your community.
