In order to support distressed professionals in the automotive aftermarket industry and their families, Automotive Parts Associates (APA) has made a contribution to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF).
“The automotive aftermarket industry is a close-knit community and we are honored for the opportunity to help. When those in the aftermarket are in need, it impacts the entire industry and APA is proud to provide a hand up,” said Paul Brokaw, APA director of program development.
The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation is the only charity that is specifically designed to improve and transform the lives of those in the aftermarket trade that have suffered hardships due to catastrophic illness or accident, by providing financial support. The AACF is comprised of industry volunteers that have been assisting members of the large automotive community since 1959. Whether accident, illness, death of a loved one or natural disaster like hurricane, flood or fire, AACF steps in to help, and can often distribute emergency grant funding to those in need within 48 hours.
