The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) is making preparations to aid automotive aftermarket families that may be impacted by Hurricane Idalia, the organization announced.
The hurricane made landfall in the Big Bend region of Florida, and in response to the crisis, the AACF has pledged to stand by its mission and assist aftermarket industry members and families impacted by the storm, the group said.
“Although AACF doesn’t claim to be a disaster relief service, we will do our best to identify and assist those industry families that have immediate needs in keeping with our mission to support aftermarket families facing catastrophic circumstances,” said Joel Ayres, executive director of the AACF. “We acknowledge the uncertainty of the situation and express our gratitude for the industry’s support by sharing our message with its employees and team members.”
The foundation will provide updates on this initiative as they become available and encourages all members of the industry to support those impacted the storm, AACF representatives said.
