“Our hearts go out to the people who are suffering through the utter devastation caused by these catastrophic hurricanes,” said Dave Nichols, president of Remy Power Products. “We made this donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation to show our support for fellow industry members who may have lost their homes, belongings and businesses, as they begin the rebuilding process.”
Driven Brands Charitable Foundation To Raise Money For Hurricane Relief Through The American Red Cross
The foundation has partnered with parent company Driven Brands’ retail automotive brands, including CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts, Maaco, Meineke Car Care Centers, Take 5 Oil Change and 1-800 Radiator & AC, to help raise funds.
Every effort has been made to ensure business operations will resume as quickly and efficiently as possible once the storm crisis has passed.
“We have all seen the news and heard the stories coming out of Texas, so we agreed to donate to the Red Cross, which has an excellent track record of providing humanitarian aid throughout the United States and the world,” said Douglas Squires, chairman of the board, Automotive Parts Associates.
Due to Hurricane Irma, Multi Parts’ Jupiter, Florida, office will be temporarily closed, beginning Sept. 7, to attend to the safety of its employees and the security of its workplace.
