Ed. Foundation Seeking Donated Supplies for Collision Programs
Aug. 21, 2015—The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced today it is seeking donated collision tools, equipment, supplies, products, scrap parts, and other related items to assist collision school instructors with limited budgets.
Product donations are tax-deductible through the Education Foundation and can be distributed to local collision school programs or can be provided to schools in need on a national level.
The Education Foundation will provide over 2,000 uniforms to collision students through industry corporate sponsors including: Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA); Bar’s Products/ Rislone; National Coatings & Supplies; Hollander Inc., a Solera company; and UniCure Spraybooths. The shirts will initially be offered to schools who applied for the 2015 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant.
“Industry companies who have items that can be donated to collision school programs are asked to contact the Education Foundation and together as an industry we can show these students that their technical education is greatly valued,” said Brandon Eckenrode, Collision Repair Education Foundation director of development. “Instructors have very limited budgets and every bit of assistance helps them provide the best technical education possible. Also, the thousands of Cintas uniforms that will be distributed this fall help allow the collision student’s look and feel professional. We cannot thank our industry sponsors and supporters enough for helping make these uniforms possible.”
