Where to Donate Your Car in Philadelphia… WCI Wednesday

Electric Car charging station NJHave you recently gone carless? Or perhaps you’re trading your previously loved four-wheels for two?

Regardless, there’s a few local organizations who can benefit from donating your car. We tackle this topic in this week’s Where Can I Wednesday column.

Where to Donate your Car in Philadelphia:

  • Wheels For Wishes is a local car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley. They accept and recycle unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats, turning them into a wish for a special, local child. Worried about dropping your car off? They’ll pick them up or tow them, free of charge – whether the engine will turn on or not. To find out more info or donate, visit their website or call at 1-855-344-9474.
  • WXPN: Support local music and donate your car for a tax deduction. Their website features a cute little video explaining how it works, so I don’t have to waste more words here.
  • WHYY more your jam? They accept vehicle donations, too!
  • Cars for Breast Cancer accept car donations to further breast cancer research, help patients and their families.
  • Philly Aids Thrift accepts car donations. Seriously, what do you NOT accept Philly Aids Thrift? (Although they provide that list on their website..)

  2. Dear Green Philly,

    I would like to know if you can include our charity, Kars4Kids in your resource page on theSupport Green Philly page/ Where to Donate a Car in Philladelphia. Kars4Kids supports educational and social welfare programs for children. Also accepts real estate donations, boats, RV’s, and motorcycles.

    Lakewood NJ 08701
    1-877- Kars4Kids/ 1-877- 527-7454
    Tax ID# 223746051
    We are a 501 (c) 3 organization

    Kars4kids has decades of experience with helping people get unwanted cars off the streets (and unused boats out of the water). Our quick process makes it very convenient for donors and local governments, as cars are towed within 48 hours of contacting us. Our donors are very pleased with the easy and smooth experience we provide and with the opportunity to help children around the country.

    Thank you for posting us to help benefit the Philadelpha, the State of Pennsylvania, and the environment, getting junk cars off the streets, driveways and even public areas, and the thousands of children who benefit from Kars4Kids’ help. I would appreciate it if you can let me know when you were able to post Kars4Kids so I can show my boss I am not goofing off.
