In partnership with Kids Under Cover since 2013, Moreland City Council is helping to keep families together and ensure young people do not become the face of homelessness in Australia.
Demonstrating their commitment to support at-risk young people in the community and raise awareness of the issue of youth homelessness Moreland City Council work hard to promote Donate Your Car® to residents by encouraging them to donate their unwanted vehicles.
In addition to promoting the program the Council show their support by diverting any abandoned vehicles processed through Council as donations to Kids Under Cover.
The impact of this partnership has been significant since it began in 2013, to date raising almost $315,000 by removing over 800 unwanted vehicles from the area, including 394 abandoned vehicles. That’s the equivalent of funding required to build five new studios and provide funds to support our scholarship program – enabling young people to continue their education or training.
We are extremely grateful for the support we receive from Moreland City Council and look forward to the partnership continuing into the future.
