AAA Cares - Something Bigger


AAA Backpack Program

The AAA Cares Annual Backpack Program is designed to help children in our communities that need support getting off to a good start.  AAA Cares wants to make sure each child has what they need to be successful on their very important first day of school.

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.

Donations - Volunteers

Local Branch Initiatives

AAA Central Penn works hard to support nonprofits that serve the greater central PA area, but we also encourage our branches to coordinate with smaller organizations that serve more localized needs. Find out how you can lend a hand through AAA Cares.

Car Seat - Boy Smiling

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.

Community Aid - Group People Smiling

CommunityAid Partnership

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.
