FenderBender Donates $20,000 to Education Foundation
Jan. 13, 2014—FenderBender magazine announced Monday its continuation of an in-kind donation of more than $20,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
“The Collision Repair Education Foundation is fundamental in helping future technicians prepare for a career in this industry,” said Chris Messer, publisher of FenderBender. “We are proud to support the work of this organization as a way to help ensure the future of our industry.”
Through FenderBender’s media channels, collision repair professionals will be exposed to the Education Foundation’s continued efforts to fuel the future of the industry.
“FenderBender’s donated advertisement space increases the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s ability to reach additional industry members and get them involved with supporting high school and college collision school programs,” said Brandon Eckenrode, the Education Foundation’s director of development. “The collision industry has provided over $20 million in support since 2008 to secondary and post-secondary collision students and their schools’ collision programs nationwide through the Education Foundation, and having FenderBender as a continued supporter allows us to spread this message to their audience.”
