Honda Foundation Loans Hybrid Civic to Charity

Honda Foundation from Australia decided to do something special for the hearing-impaired children and their families assisted by community organization Taralye. Honda Heroes program together with a Honda dealer in Doncaster loaned a Honda Civic Hybrid to enable Taralye’s Early Intervention Officer Sally Flemming, to visit the families of children using the organization’s services.

Taralye is delighted to receive support from The Honda Foundation,” said CEO Therese Kelly. “The use of a motor vehicle allows us to extend our early intervention outreach by delivering services in families’ homes and local communities.” Taralye is a not-for-profit organization which provides services to deaf and hearing impaired children aged under six throughout the State.

Mr. Lindsay Smalley, Chairman of The Honda Foundation said, “Providing the Civic Hybrid to Taralye will not only improve the mobility of staff, it will help keep the organization’s fuel costs down. The Foundation is proud to support such a worthy organization.

The Honda Civic Hybrid is a hybrid powertrain version of the Honda Civic sedan featuring a continuously variable transmission and Integrated Motor Assist hybrid system similar to that of the Honda Insight.

The Honda Foundation draws on voluntary contributions from Honda's Australia-wide network of dealers who donate $15 ($5 and $10 respectively) for every Honda car sold, from Honda Australia itself and from private donors. It was established in 1992 and has disbursed over $7.4 million in grants to a wide range of applicants from the Australian community. The Honda Foundation operates independently and aims to engender goodwill for the benefit of Australian communities.
