Brake Parts Inc Supports Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation to Help with Hurricane Relief

Since 1959, the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation has assisted individuals and families of the automotive aftermarket.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, Brake Parts Inc (BPI) has made a donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) to support its efforts to help auto care workers affected by the natural disaster in North and South Carolina.

“Many of our fellow industry members have been hard hit by tragic effects of the most recent hurricane and the flooding that followed,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc. “BPI has a strong history of helping those in need, whether in our community or across the country, and we are proud to support AACF and their efforts to provide assistance to those in the aftermarket that are trying to recover from this devastating situation.”

Since 1959, the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation has assisted individuals and families of the automotive aftermarket. These individuals have fallen on hard times due to death, catastrophic illness or accident and have exhausted all other available resources in maintaining a reasonable existence. The AACF is the only charity that focuses on individuals and their families employed in the automotive aftermarket industry.

With its donation, Brake Parts Inc has reached the AACF Diamond supporter level. To make a donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation or to seek assistance for someone in need, visit www.aacfi.org.
