The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) is making preparations to aid aftermarket families affected by Hurricane Laura and the California fires, the organization announced.
“It is very early in the process, but our intention is to explore every avenue to identify aftermarket families that will need our help recovering from these natural disasters happening during a Pandemic already causing untold hardship and stress for so many,” said AACF President, Lynn Parker.
“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 and unmet needs in keeping with our mission to support aftermarket families facing catastrophic circumstances,” said Joel Ayres, Executive Director of AACF.
“Clearly, we don’t know what shape our response is going to take yet,” Ayres continued. “There are close to 600 fires in California and this is just the start of the hurricane season. What we do know, is we’re going to need the generous support of our industry to be in a position to respond effectively. We thank all of those who have already made contributions and welcome donations of any amount. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who suffer during this profound time of crisis.”
AACF is asking for tax-deductible donations to help provide needed funding. Donations can be made online at aacfi.org/donate-today, by mail at P.O. Box 864520, Orlando, FL 32886, or by calling 772-286-5500.
