Peter G.
Glad that my donation will help someone in need
By Peter G., Chicago  IL (I donated a 1998 Volvo V70)

My experience with your organization has been wonderful. The people I worked with were truely professional and the pick up of my car went as smoothly as possible. I am so glad that my donation will help someone in need.

Paul K.
Done in a matter of minutes
By Paul K., Palatine  IL (I donated a 1995 Ford Probe)

Everything went very well. The tow truck was here when promised, and the operator was very polite. The whole thing was done in a matter of minutes! I will donate another car to Kars4Kids when that time comes.

I like that the Jeep went to good use instead of the junk yard
By Susan K., Oakwood Hills  IL (I donated a 1996 Jeep Cherokee)

This experience was awesome. I had trouble selling our old Jeep. Kars4Kids was able to help us get rid of our vehicle. The tow truck representative that came was extremely friendly and nice. Time arranged was right on schedule. I like that the Jeep w. . .

Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4kids Vision

Our vision at Kars4Kids is to enable our children to succeed throughout life. We achieve this goal through a gamut of educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children and their families and communities. With a network of thousands of volunteers, we strive to change the world, one child at a time.

Mentoring Our Youth

Our mentoring program pairs children with mature mentors who are a positive influence, a role model, and a friend for life. The one-on-one relationship allows our mentors to give their mentees the personal guidance they need to grow into productive and well-balanced members of the community.

Chillzone, a Safe Haven

All children need some time outside of the structured school environment. ChillZone provides a safe and healthy place for children and teens to hang out with friends and mentors. Fun combines with stimulating guidance and social growth for the perfect outlet our children (and their parents!) could ask for.
