Why Donate Your Car To Our Wheels For Wishes & Wellness Car Donation Program?

Through the help of your donation, Wheels For Wishes & Wellness has helped touch the lives of thousands of children. Since 2010, we have donated more than $104 Million to benefit children's hospitals and charities nationally. Unfortunately, there is still plenty of work that needs to be done, and a lot of smiling faces left to be touched.

Your Donation Helps Children Receive Care

Each time a child stays in the hospital, it costs an average of $8,400. For children who have chronic or even life-threatening illnesses, this could rise into the tens of thousands with multiple hospital stays each year. (source)

Donations Help Children Have The Resources They Need

About 15.8 million children, or 21 percent of all children, lived in food-insecure households in 2013. This means these children do not consistently have access to food and are faced with the threat of hunger. Furthermore, 14.7 million kids, or 20 percent of all children, were living in poverty in 2013. (source)

Your Vehicle Donation Helps Children Live A Better Life

In 2013, more than 40 percent of households with children lived in housing that created a financial burden, was physically inadequate, or was overcrowded. Some families even lived with two or even all three of circumstances. (source)
