AACF Prepares for Hurricane Idalia Recovery Efforts

Aug. 31, 2023
The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation has pledged its support to help aftermarket families impacted by Hurricane Idalia as it approaches Florida.

As Hurricane Idalia progresses toward the Florida coastline, the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has pledged its support to help aftermarket families impacted, according to a press release.

The hurricane is currently classified as Category 1 and is generating sustained winds of 90 mph and higher gusts. It is expected to intensify and possibly make landfall as a strong Category 3 or 4 hurricane in the Big Bend region of Florida.

AACF says it commits to providing assistance, support, and resources to families that have been negatively affected by the disaster.

“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 needs in keeping with our mission to support aftermarket families facing catastrophic circumstances,” said AACF Executive Director Joel Ayres.
