CARSTAR to Support 3M Hire Our Heroes Campaign
April 15, 2013—CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts will partner with the Collision Repair Education Foundation to support returning veterans through 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division's Hire Our Heroes Campaign.
CARSTAR and the Education Foundation will provide scholarships and support for collision repair training to help drive employment in the collision repair industry for returning veterans.
The Hire our Heroes program helps fund rehabilitation for wounded veterans through Operation Comfort’s Automotivation program, which provides opportunities for wounded soldiers to restore vehicles through the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program.
Participating CARSTAR shop owners throughout the U.S. will support the campaign through the use of 3M products. For every qualifying purchase of 3M products by a CARSTAR shop owner, 3M will contribute to the campaign to reach a $250,000 goal.
“We’re proud of our network of CARSTAR store owners around the country who honor our nation’s military members with their support of programs like 3M Hire Our Heroes, along with their work on NABC’s Recycled Rides and CARSTAR’s annual Military Month in November,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “Many thanks to our partners at 3M Automotive Aftermarket for making a national program like this possible.”
