    Maroondah Hospital Project

    Between July 2014 – July 2015, DENSO became involved with the Maroondah Hospital Paediatrics unit as a way to connect DENSO associates to our local community through meaningful charity, and also to leave a DENSO legacy for future generations. The objective was to raise $16,000.00 AU to contribute towards improving paediatric patient care and to support the Emergency Department Short Stay Unit. Over the course of one year, the committee organised many fundraising activities, including cake stalls, golf lessons, hampers, VIP parking and the $16,000.00 was successfully raised!
