Advanced Auto Parts (AAP) in Tamaqua held their annual auto show recently to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, JDRF. AAP has been a supporter of JDRF since 1994. Since then, the company has raised more than $20 million to support the search for a cure for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. Last year's campaign raised a record-breaking $3.8 million. The campaign is now a year-round effort involving Team Members, customers and vendor partners participating in fundraising efforts through sponsorship relationships and events like Monster Jam, sneaker sales, golf tournaments, auctions and JDRF walks. Advanced Auto (national) has also partnered with United Way for more than 20 years to help fellow citizens succeed and help United Way drive toward a stronger community.
