Wheels for Wishes

Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® New Jersey, a non-profit organization that grants the wishes of children facing life-threatening medical conditions.

When you donate your unwanted vehicle, proceeds from the sale through the Wheels For Wishes 501(c)(3) charity benefits your local Make-A-Wish®.

These "wish kids" need to think about something better, and imagine a future with bright days and dreams that come true. Although doctors provide the medical care, they tell us that a wish is powerful medicine, and it is the wishes that provide hope, laughter and fun times for children to be who they are... children. If you have a car to donate, your generosity will make a big difference.

Wheels for Wishes offers an easy way to recycle or donate your unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats. Other benefits enable you to:
receive a charitable tax deduction;
eliminate the hassle of selling your car;
be “green” by recycling your car;
get fast, free pick-up or towing of your donated vehicle.

In most cases, your vehicle is accepted whether it is running or not.

Rain barrels are a great way to capture the rain from your roof’s downspout, and use it for watering your garden or potted plants, conserving your use of drinking water, while also reducing stormwater runoff.
