United Way and AAA

United Way is engaged in nearly 1,800 communities across 40 countries and territories worldwide. As the largest privately-funded nonprofit in the world, United Way creates solutions that build stronger communities by focusing their efforts on education, income, health and housing. These challenges are all interconnected, forming vital components of a healthy and secure life – if any of them is removed or adversely impacted, the others are negatively affected as well.

AAA Spreads Holiday Cheer

A key tenet of AAA’s business model is being a responsible corporate citizen. Year-round efforts support various local community initiatives, but some AAA Clubs did a little extra this holiday season to ensure less fortunate families and individuals receive the assistance they needed. AAA Clubs across the country, but particularly in Missouri, Northern New England and Southern California worked with local United Way and other charitable organizations to donate time, clothing, toys and food in support of local initiatives and needs in their respective communities.
