AAA Central Penn has a proud tradition of supporting local non-profit organizations that have a positive community impact.
AAA Cares Teamed Up with Caitlin’s Smiles!
Help Give Sick Children Laughs, Hopes and Smiles
The mission of Caitlin’s Smiles is simple; share smiles and laughter with children facing chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The organization distributes arts and crafts kits to hospitals, giving kids an outlet for creativity and the means to heightened feelings of self-worth.
The organization was founded in 2004 after a Harrisburg-based family lost their daughter Caitlin Hornung. Since its founding, the organization has provided more than 1.9 MILLION craft kits to kids in hospitals throughout Central PA and the Mid-Atlantic.
To support their efforts, AAA Cares provided materials to each branch for employees, members and the general public to create kits, delivered to local hospitals.
