Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Monday, April 29th, 2019

AAA Carolinas awarded six local charities through its “Care Fleet program” in a special ceremony at the organization’s headquarters Friday, April 26.

AAA raised $78,000 in 2018 to divide among the charities and check presentations were held in front of a fleet of six one-of-a-kind painted tow trucks honoring each charity.

AAA Carolinas started the “Cares” program five years ago as a way for employees to give back to the community by paying $1 to wear jeans on Fridays as part of its “Casual for a Cause” program. The company then matches the total.

“We are extremely proud of our Cares program which continues to grow every year,” said Dave Parsons, President and CEO of AAA Carolinas. “We have partnered with great charities that do such important work in the community and all of us at AAA Carolinas are honored to be able to aid them in their mission.”

At this time, AAA Carolinas has partnered with the six charities below.

· Make-A-Wish

· Special Olympics North Carolina

· American Cancer Society; Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

· Harvest Center

· Paralyzed Veterans of America

· Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation
