Today is #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement focusing on unleashing the power of radical generosity. This is a wonderful opportunity to partner with Wheelchairs for Warriors, #jointhemission to get our warriors #rollingstrong!
Please consider donating to give the gift of freedom this holiday season to a warrior in need!
Serving warriors is our mission! With your support, we serve veterans and first responders across the United States of America with custom-fit, complex-rehab mobility solutions to ensure injured warriors can rejoin their lives at the highest level of INDEPENDENT mobility and function possible!
Often times the wheelchairs our warriors receive from their healthcare providers are subpar (at best). Some are falling apart at times there is a 5-6 year waiting list for a new one. This not only causes them a tremendous amount of stress, it also creates a burden for their caregivers who struggle with the transportation of heavy, bulky chairs. Oftentimes, the limitation of mobility leads to deep depression for these heroes. Some of our warriors need all-terrain wheels to get out and enjoy the outdoors or adaptive sports chairs so they can play sports (or compete in the Para Olympics!)
The average price for a wheelchair is $12,054. We custom fit each wheelchair to the specific physical and lifestyle needs of our recipients. These warriors have sacrificed so much for all of us, they deserve to have the freedom, independence and better quality of life our mobility solutions provide!
Have a Wheelchair to Donate?
Thank you so much for supporting the mission of Wheelchairs for Warriors! If you would like to donate a physical wheelchair you MUST email us the serial number, photos of the chair and the exact physical address of where the chair is located!
Our main mission is to provide CUSTOM mobility options to veterans and first responders. However, sometimes a used chair will work for a warrior who is waiting in the wings. It is actually rare, but it does happen. This is where the serial number plays a huge part… Our complex seating rehab specialist will look up the serial number and let someone on our team know if it is something WFW can use and will email you ASAP with a decision one way or the other!
Here are some rule-of-thumb thoughts for you to consider:
We only accept power chair donations. No manual chairs. Having said that, you must be in the position to secure the wheelchair to a pallet and wrap it in Saran Wrap.
Shipping is tax deductible if you choose to handle that. If the batteries are dead and the chair is over 5 years old, WFW will not be able to accept it.
If you do not require a donation form for your taxes, we work with a company who most likely will take your chair off of your hands. Just make sure you email us the serial number! If you do require a donation form and we cannot accept your gift, you can try your local VFW, American Legion or DAV (Disabled American Veterans).
Again, thank you so much for your generous offer and remember… EMAIL that serial number, photograph and address!
For exact instructions please call 832-621-9435 do NOT call our main phone number.

Before Wheelchairs for Warriors came along, many of our recipients were distraught, depressed and feeling isolated. Many were unable to get around their own homes, maneuver the great outdoors, go to the parks or beaches with their wives and families, or play an adaptive sport. The burden was also shared by their caretakers having to assist them with their heavy, bulky, inadequate wheelchairs. Thanks to our supporters and charitable donations, they are able to enjoy more independence and a better quality of life.
We are very grateful to all of our W4W supporters who graciously partner with us to make this mission possible. Our efforts together give veterans and first responders in need a life of mobility they may not otherwise enjoy.
