You're Helping Newport News Kids
When you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, we make sure the proceeds of your car benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia, so that local kids will get the chance to experience the beauty and excitement that Newport News has to offer. We take for granted many of the things that “Wish Kids” dream of, so even something as simple as a 5-minute car ride to the zoo could mean the world to them. We provide them with opportunities that they dream about, and we make those dreams a reality.
Newport News has something exciting to offer for every child, whether they are artsy or interested in marine life, science, history, nature, or just looking to have a good time. Maybe they even want to meet their favorite sports team. We hear the wishes from these children and we make sure it happens for them, but we need people like you to do so.
The Virginia Living Museum offers something for animal and nature lovers alike, whether their interests are birds, fish, or wolves, or they are more interested in the natural habitats of these animals. The Virginia Living Museum gives visitors a look at living exhibits to replicate Virginia’s natural heritage, and the Museum provides an observatory, planetarium theater, outdoor boardwalk, living greenhouse, and conservation garden. The Peninsula SPCA Exotic Sanctuary & Petting Zoo gives children the opportunity to visit chickens, goats, deer, and a peacock at the petting zoo, and also an African Mandrill, otters, Siberian Tiger, and Black Leopard at the Exotic Sanctuary.
The art-minded will fall in love with all that Newport News has to offer for them. Whether it’s the Peninsula Fine Arts Center, featuring diverse artworks and dynamic exhibitions, where children can also create their own works of art in the Hands On For Kids gallery, or the Peninsula Community Theatre, which offers kid-friendly musicals, comedies, and mysteries. It could also be the Ferguson Center for the Arts, which over 1-million people from around the world have flocked to just to experience the broad range of performances that the theater has to offer.
Thrill seekers will not want to miss Busch Gardens Williamsburg, featuring rides, plus indoor and outdoor shows. Water Country USA, the Mid-Atlantic’s largest family water park, is another must, featuring water rides, attractions, and entertainment.
