Serving warriors is our mission! With your support, we stand
in the gap between what our warriors are issued versus what they NEED.
Wheelchairs for Warriors provides custom-fit, complex-rehab mobility solutions to ensure injured veterans and first responders rejoin their lives at the highest level of INDEPENDENT mobility and function possible! #RollingStrong
Show Your Love!
Valentine's Day is a holiday of love, joy and quality time set aside for those special to us. But it can also be a lonely time for those who are more isolated due to mobility or mental health challenges. This is especially true for our injured warriors in wheelchairs. So what better time to show a warrior a little love than right now?
We Americans love our warriors and should show it! Please reach out to a veteran or first responder and remind them that they are loved and appreciated for the sacrifices they have made for us, our country, and communities. And help us get them Rolling Strong by giving today.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

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 we MUST have the serial number first! If at all possible, PLEASE do not call… email is the best way for us to keep track of who needs what, where, when and how! Also, tell us where the chair is located and send us a photo of that bad boy. We get a lot of phone calls daily and we just cannot move forward without a serial number!
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.
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!
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!

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.
