Although AAA has served our communities through emergency roadside assistance for more than 100 years, we also help by raising awareness for local charitable organizations. Recently, AAA has designed a fleet of special tow trucks, each representing an important philanthropic orginization that we support. While the tow trucks perform AAA roadside assistance as they always have, these unique new designs serve as reminders of how we can help those around us. Here are the organizations you will see represented on AAA’s newly designed fleet:
