A significant challenge faced by single-mothers-in-need, and their children, is transportation. Wheels from the Heart gives the gift of a reliable vehicle to single moms with children, and helps them drive to a better life.
Owning a car is often the first step to financial independence for single mothers and their families. The Wheels from the Heart Foundation works to help make this happen.
WHEELS FROM THE HEART FOUNDATION
We are a 501(c)(3) charitable
in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Mrs. Kavanaugh received a car two years ago when we collaborated with the Boys and Girls Club. The kids walked 5 miles to school everyday leaving little time for activities and homework. They took the bus to buy groceries and couldn’t participate in school activities and sports. Today mom has a better job, the boys are all A students, playing sports & spending time giving back to the community at the Boys & Girls Club.
Car ownership instantly impacts the quality of life for a mother with children. All donations to the foundation are directly applied to the purchase of cars for single mothers and their children. All our staff work as volunteers, and we would love and appreciate any and all support you may offer.
A Variety of Assistance
A single mother was told she’d blown her car’s engine and that same mechanic offered to buy the car at issue for $250. She was a bit hysterical, and thought to reach out to Wheel from the Heart. We towed her car to our mechanic, and discovered the mechanical problem could be remedied by merely replacing a $240 oil pump.
Wheels from the Heart paid for the tow and the repair, and now mom, kids and the car are all back on the road again!
A great way to support our charity is to partner with us. Bringing awareness to single mothers in need while making your event help a good cause. Over the past 4 years we have given away 33 cars at local business events.
