If you’ve been in the auto care industry long enough, you know
that the backbone of our businesses is built on relationships. Most people
within our industry refer to it as a big family, and it does feel like that.
But in all families, difficult
times and unexpected critical situations can occur. It happens within our own
auto care family, and more often than you may know. Fortunately, there is an
organization that is dedicated to helping our own when bad things happen.
It’s the Aftermarket Foundation.
Founded in 1959, the Aftermarket
Foundation assists individuals and families working in the automotive
aftermarket that have fallen on hard times due to death, catastrophic illness
or financial hardship. The foundation is able to provide assistance to families
and individuals in need from donations.
If you know of someone in the auto
care family that needs help, I urge you to contact the foundation at
772-286-5500. For more information on the foundation or to make a donation, click
