Rerouting People's Stories

Sioux Empire Wheels to Work reroutes the stories of single-parent families by matching them with transportation to pursue greater opportunities.

What We Do

Wheels to Work is a 20-year-old Sioux Falls, South Dakota non-profit organization that matches qualifying single-parent families with safe and reliable donated vehicles free of charge. We call donated vehicles “Angel Cars,” because they have such a profoundly positive impact on the lives of those who receive them.

Monetary donations go toward “Angel Repairs” on vehicles belonging to qualified individuals in need of a one-time car repair of up to $500.

Vehicle and monetary donations are tax-deductible. Because the organization is entirely volunteer-run, with very few administrative costs, 99.9% of every donation goes directly to the people served by Wheels to Work.

Donate an Angel Car

Your used car could very literally change the lives of an entire family. Access to regular and reliable transportation opens an entire world of opportunities for families without a car. Limitations on a family’s transportation options create limitations on nearly every aspect of their life, from where they can purchase food to where parents can work to which daycares children can attend.

Donating an Angel Car is easy. Simply bring the vehicle and title to your nearest Sioux Falls Tires, Tires, Tires location. A team member will initiate the process and walk you through the steps of donating your Angel Car.

That’s it. They’ll even give you a ride home if you need one.

Donate an Angel Repair

You don’t have to donate a car to support Wheels to Work. Thanks to the generous monetary donations of Sioux Empire community members like you, we are also able to help families in need of emergency car repair.

Qualified individuals are eligible for a one-time car repair of up to $500 paid for by Wheels to Work. 99.9% of all monetary donations to Wheels to Work go toward these Angel Repair costs.
