At the recent Fall Shareholder’s Conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., National Pronto announced the board approval of a $5,000 donation to the Automotive Aftermarket Foundation in Memory of Jack Malloy. In addition, National Pronto will match any donation made to the Foundation in Memory of Jack Malloy up to an additional $5,000.

Malloy worked for APW Knox-Seeman in Carson, Calif., for many years. Young Suhr, Jr. President of APW Knox-Seeman had this to say of Jack after hearing the news of his passing; “We will miss his presence so much, but will remember his style, his teachings, and his high moral standards forever”.  Malloy had a great love of the automotive industry and most of all for the people involved in the industry at all levels.

In expressing his personal support for the contribution decision and the ‘matching’ incentive for additional contributions, Bill Maggs, President of National Pronto, urged other Aftermarket businesses to consider making a donation to the Aftermarket Foundation. “For any donations in memory of Jack Malloy, National Pronto will match those contributions up to another $5,000., so those who contribute now in the memory of Jack, can ensure that the Foundation gets extra mileage from the contribution, but be sure to indicate that the contribution is in memory of Jack Malloy."

"The Aftermarket Foundation is how we, in this industry, look after our own, so I would also urge other Aftermarket companies and groups to consider possibly adding an Aftermarket Foundation contribution to your annual budget,” he adds.

The Aftermarket Foundation is the only charity focused exclusively on the needs of Aftermarket people and their families, when they have nowhere else to turn after suffering a catastrophic loss or disaster.
