July 8, 2013—Rydell Chevrolet of Waterloo, Iowa, donated $100,000 in parts to 50 schools through the Collision Repair Education Foundation.

Schools that applied for the Education Foundation’s 2013 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant were the recipients of the donated bumper covers, providing students with the opportunity to practice collision repair on current model vehicle parts.

“Rydell Chevrolet has taken their generosity to a new level and continues to amaze us. This individual dealership in Waterloo is assisting collision school programs nationwide through their parts donations, which are desperately needed by instructors," said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Education Foundation. "We hope to showcase this dealership’s continued support to the thousands of other dealerships across the country and help connect them to local collision school programs.”
