Europcar Australia has formed a new partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation (Starlight), as the official car rental supplier to the charity.
Not only will Europcar assist with the car rental requirements of the charity, but it will also provide the Victoria team with a new, safe Mitsubishi ASX MY20 for its Starlight Connection program — helping Captain Starlight travel to hospitals across Victoria, visiting over 130 children every month.
Starlight brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalized children and young people through a range of programs, including Wishgranting and Starlight Express Rooms, which are available in every major children’s hospital in Australia.
A Starlight Wish is for a sick kid or young person, giving them and their families something exciting to look forward to during treatment. The experience of sharing a once-in-a-lifetime Starlight Wish brings families together and some positivity into their lives.
The new partnership will support over 200 families every year by providing transport on their Starlight Wish.
Staff engagement will play an important role in the partnership, with team members having the opportunity to get involved in fundraising and volunteering activities.
