The Pronto Network Donates to AACF for Summer Charity Event

The Pronto Network donated $2,000 to the AACF as a result of its "Wear Your Shorts to Work" charity event.

The Pronto Network has made a $2,000 donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF). The Pronto Network staff started a “Wear Your Shorts to Work” charity event last year to collect money for the non-profit. If the daily high temperature didn’t exceed 100 degrees, an employee would “donate” to the fund each day they wore shorts to work. The Pronto Network matched the employee contributions.

“Once again, the Pronto Network associates stepped up in a big way to support the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation with our ‘Wear Your Shorts to Work’ fundraising campaign. I would like to thank all associates who participated this summer during the 100-day heatwave we endured and to The Pronto Network for their generous contribution,” said Mike Peace, vice president of sales and business development. “We know that every dollar raised helps families in the Aftermarket who are struggling through difficult times. Please remember those individuals who make the Automotive Aftermarket their home. Your help is desperately needed.”

The AACF assists individuals and families of the automotive aftermarket. These individuals have fallen on hard times due to death, catastrophic illness, accident or disaster, and have exhausted all other available resources in maintaining a reasonable existence. The AACF is the only charity of its kind that focuses only on persons and their families employed in the automotive aftermarket.
