Fighting Hunger in Central PA
Please join AAA Cares to help our neighbors that are still suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic. You can help by joining AAA Cares at an upcoming Volunteer Event or donating to the AAA Cares Virtual Food Drive to support the local food banks.
AAA Cares is Teaming Up with Caitlin’s Smiles
From January 30 until February 25, 2023, stop by any AAA Central Penn branch to help us assemble 5,000 Coping Kits. Coping Kits will then be delivered to kids in your local hospital to help give sick children laughs, hopes and smiles!
Car Seat Safety Checks
AAA Central Penn has certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) in our branch locations. This service is available to anyone, member or non-member, during regular office hours at no charge. Trained technicians will teach you how to install and adjust your car seat correctly.
AAA Central Penn is proud to partner with CommunityAid. CommunityAid helps our neighbors by creating quality jobs, offering an affordable shopping experience, and supporting non-profit partners serving our local community. Donation carts accepting clothes and shoes for CommunityAid are located inside our Harrisburg, Camp Hill, and Lancaster AAA branches.
Other Community Involvement
Toys for Tots
Each year we collect Toys for Tots at all 11 AAA Central Penn branches.
AAA Central Penn also collects gently used luggage and distributes them to local charities that have a need for them.
Chasing Down Hunger
Employees at the AAA branch in Centerville collected food to support Chase Schattgen and his local charity, Chasing Down Hunger.
Did you know that every 2 seconds someone needs a blood transfusion? It’s true, and 1 pint of blood can save 3 lives! AAA Central Penn hosts community blood drives to support the Central PA Blood Bank.
CarFit is an interactive, educational program that teaches participants how to make their personal vehicle “fit” them to increase safety and mobility when they hit the road. The events are free and confidential.
Handmade Blanket Drive
Calling all knitters, crocheters, and quilters: AAA Central Penn branches collect handmade blankets for local hospitals. Lap quilts and afghans should be approximately 36"x36" and baby blankets should be smaller.
