Yellow kidney car

For 25 year's Kidney Car has been the trusted choice in car donations. To mark this very special anniversary, we're meeting car enthusiasts at The Canadian International Auto Show running until Feb 26th at the
 Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Of course, Kidney Car is front and centre, with this 1974 MG Midget convertible and we've had many visitors to our booth learning how Kidney Car can help find a new purpose for your unwanted vehicle. Our team is  also available to answer questions you may have about your kidney health.

We have an amazing crew of great volunteers helping us at the Auto Show. Thank you for your tremendous support!
