In response to the devastating floods in Baton Rouge, La., The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) has made a $10,000 donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) to help auto care industry members affected by the flooding. Federated Auto Parts and the National Pronto Association each donated $5,000 to assist AACF in helping those in need.
“After seeing news reports and hearing first-hand accounts of the unprecedented flooding in Louisiana, it was shocking to realize that the flood had destroyed so many businesses and homes of those who make their career in the aftermarket,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Our members were asking how they could help and the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation is the perfect vehicle to reach individuals that need help.”
The AACF has assisted individuals and families of the automotive aftermarket who have encountered hard times since 1959.
