Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation prepares to aid aftermarket Hurricane Ian victims

AACF is asking for tax-deductible donations to help provide urgently needed funding; donations can be made online

Sacramento, Calif.—The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) is making preparations to aid aftermarket families affected by Hurricane Ian.

“It is very early in the process, but our intention is to explore every avenue to identify aftermarket families that need our help during this natural disaster,” said AACF President Larry Magee.

“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 the entirety of the damage yet and it appears more areas of the Southeastern U.S. may be hit,” Ayres continued. “What we do know is we’re going to need the generous support of our industry if we want to be in a position to respond. Thank you to all those who have already made contributions — donations of any amount are welcome. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who suffer during this profound time of crisis.”

AACF will provide additional updates on this initiative as they become available.

AACF is asking for tax-deductible donations to help provide urgently needed funding. Donations can be made online at, by mail at P.O. Box 947520, Atlanta, GA 30394-7520 or by calling 772-286-5500.
