Jan. 13, 2016—The MOPAR Masters Guild group has pledged to provide $2.5 million in donated parts to high school and college collision programs in recognition of the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 25th anniversary. The MOPAR Masters Guild and Education Foundation will work toward having at least 50 dealerships each donating at least $50,000 in scrap parts for students to practice on.
“Scrap parts are regularly the number one needed and requested item by high school and college collision school programs across the country and the Education Foundation welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with the MOPAR Masters Guild group and their members for this incredible donation pledge. As the Education Foundation will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2016, our efforts of supporting collision school programs with donations and presenting students with collision career opportunities will be taken to another level through commitments such as this. We look forward to working together with the MOPAR Masters Guild over the course of 2016 and meeting this goal,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
