Antique Auto Club Making Christmas a Little Brighter for Local Special Needs Children
The South Jersey Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America partnered with the Sunshine Foundation to send Gift Cards to local special needs children for Christmas.
The local children that received Gift Cards from SJRAACA were Marina, diagnosed with spina bifida; Tristin, diagnosed with low-functioning autism; Joseph, diagnosed with cerebral palsy; and Mary (not pictured), diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
“We received the Gift Cards, thank you so much! Marina is so happy and she plans to buy an iPad!” -Marina’s mom
“I feel very blessed for such kind people to help us. It is such a beautiful feeling knowing the kindness these people have and you at the Sunshine Foundation to help us. I am truly grateful and Thank everyone so much for the kindness, love, and thoughtfulness they blessed Tristin with. It’s so much help for me because of my personal financial struggles…so again, Thank You and the Auto Club…very thoughtful.” –Tristin’s mom
“We received the Gift Cards and Joseph was very excited!! We really appreciate the gift and thank you all!” -Joseph’s mom
Since 1966, the South Jersey Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America membership has been committed to sharing classic vehicles with the public. It is their goal to see that classic automobiles are “out and about” at local events for the public to see and enjoy.
Club Vice President, Ron Scott, shared with us “The SJRAACA has been involved with Sunshine Foundation for more than 20 years. When the club decided to choose a charity, Sunshine was adopted. Donations come from both individuals and our club treasury each year. We are especially blessed to make Christmas a little brighter for the kids.”
SJRAACA is always enthusiastically attracting new members. You don’t need a classic vehicle to join but simply be interested in the automobile and its heritage. Their membership covers many generations and includes AACA Junior Members in events in the hope that they will continue to keep the love of the classics alive. The club members show in parades, travel to nursing homes, and participate in many other regional events. For more information, visit www.sjraaca.com
