Make-A-Wish Northeast New York is participating in Wheels for Wishes, a national campaign. 

The program gives people the opportunity to donate old and unwanted vehicles to the wish-granting fund to support local children and teens who suffer from life-threatening medical conditions.

Donating is very simple, the donator schedules a date for pickup, and Wheels for Wishes comes and tows the vehicle away for free. The vehicle is then turned around and sold for its maximum value.

100 percent of the proceeds go toward Make-A-Wish Northeast New York.

For more information on the program and how to donate, visit:
