Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation Responds in Wake of Hurricane Florence

“Thousands of aftermarket employees live and work in the impact areas,” AACF President Lynn Parker said.

The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has launched the first phase of urgent response to aftermarket families affected by Hurricane Florence.

“Applications for help increased 78 percent in the wake of last year’s unprecedented hurricane season, so we initiated crisis-response plans last week,” AACF President Lynn Parker said. “Thousands of aftermarket employees live and work in the impact areas. We will be working with our awareness partners, SEMA, the Auto Care Association, MEMA and others to try to reach aftermarket families in need as quickly as possible.”

Aftermarket families in need are asked to complete the application on the AACF website.

Donations can be made online or by calling 772-286-5500.

AACF offered a “sincere thanks” to Race Winning Brands (RWB), the first aftermarket company to rally to raise funds for the hurricane response.
