Hertz Global Partners with Luke's Wings to Provide Rental Cars to Families of Wounded Service Members
Nov 11, 2016
ESTERO, Fla., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global, which operates the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty rental car brands in the U.S. through its operating subsidiary The Hertz Corporation, is beginning a partnership with Luke's Wings, a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle, by providing up to $5,000 in vehicle rentals during the months of November and December.
"We are thrilled to partner with such a notable company in the rental car industry," said Jennifer Magerer, Luke's Wings' executive director of family communications and logistics. "Together, we are truly making an impact on the lives of our service members and their families."
Since 2008, Luke's Wings has provided families with the means to travel to be with their loved ones during the service member's hospitalization. The group not only flies family members in and out of military hospitals, but also flies injured soldiers home for holidays, birthdays and other major life events. This service helps ensure that every wounded warrior is supported by family as they recover. Additionally, the organization flies families into hospice care facilities to spend time with a veteran in their final days and provides emergency flights for the families of our special operators who are injured on special missions.
"Hertz is proud to add a new dimension to the travel services Luke's Wings provides," said Bill Masterson, Hertz's vice president of communications. "We look forward to growing our partnership in the new year and giving back to the men and women of our armed services."
