The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) recently helped an Interstate Batteries employee who lost his family home to a fire.
Interstate Batteries employee Stefan Gonzalez’s residence was destroyed by a fire days after Thanksgiving.
He applied for assistance from AACF – a nonprofit dedicated to giving back to those within the automotive aftermarket who have experienced hardships.
Within three days, AACF Executive Director Joel Ayres presented Gonzalez with a check.
Gonzalez was introduced to AACF by his company, Interstate Batteries.
Jay Woodall, general manager, national accounts retail/branded for Interstate Batteries, is a member of the AACF board of directors.
“AACF has an Employee Assistance Partner Program,” which provides materials for automotive aftermarket industry companies to share with their teammates, according to AACF officials.
“There is no cost to participate in the program. Those in need can also apply for help via the AACF website.”
