Wheels Program


The Wheels Program is a collaboration between U.P. KIDS and the Copper Country Intermediate School District (ISD). UP KIDS recruits individuals, banks, car dealerships and other businesses to donate used vehicles. Automotive students in the ISD Career & Technology Education Center perform repairs and safety checks. UP KIDS gives the reconditioned vehicles to families in need for the cost of any new parts (usually a nominal fee).

To donate, simply call UP KIDS! A staff person will take a look at your vehicle to gather information. The ideal vehicle is not older than 15 years and in running condition. But all donations are considered!
