Well, no, we don’t actually build a caror do we?

Started with seed money from the Lightning Foundation Community Hero Program, the Build a Car program is for donors who want to help “build” a car with their donation of any size. Their support allows Wheels of Success to refurbish vehicles to provide reliable transportation to low- and moderate-income working individuals who need a vehicle to get to work and move their lives forward.

There are a few steps to Build a Car, all of which rely on our valued sponsors, partners and donors:

  • First, a donor contacts us and completes our Vehicle Donation Application.
  • Or, in some cases, we may purchase a vehicle.
  • Once we identify what, if any, repairs and maintenance are required to restore the vehicle to good working condition, sponsors can support the cost – allowing us to “Build a Car.” Repair services are provided by our partners in the automotive industry. The average cost to restore a vehicle is $3,000, but the result is a well-functioning, reliable vehicle.
  • Whether you are an individual, service organization, car dealership or a company looking for a team building activity, you can help us Build a Car for a local family.
  • Donors may also fund specific repair or replacement items.

Wheels of Success offers our Build a Car sponsors the opportunity to present the vehicle to our client during an event at their place of business, which we promote through media.
