We saw this story on an auto parts company raising money for the the Wounded Warrior Program and thought it was just great. When small companies raise money for charities it can really mean a big difference.

A&P Auto Parts, a distributor of recycled auto parts, joined efforts with the Northeast division of Team PRP to raise $19,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Projects serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001.

A&P Auto Parts is a member of Team PRP, which is the largest group of independent automotive recyclers in North America. With a collaborative approach, both groups were able to raise $19,000 for the project, where funds support numerous programs and initiatives to aid Wounded Warriors. Some of the Wounded Warrior Project programs include:

  •     Transition Training Academy
  •     Combat Stress Recovery Program
  •     Physical Health & Wellness
  •     Family Support
  •     WWP Backpacks

“We at A&P and our employees are honored to give to such a great cause,” said Billy Abold Jr., the owner of A&P Auto Parts.
