Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Oregon. They offer a free and easy way to recycle or donate unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats, by turning them into a wish for a local child. They will pick-up or tow away cars free of charge, anywhere in Oregon, whether they run or not. Vehicles are either recycled or auctioned off and 100% of the net proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Oregon. Since they are a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, you also receive the maximum possible tax deduction for your charity vehicle donation. Contact them through their website.
