ST. PAUL, MINN., Jan. 28, 2015—FenderBender magazine, the nation’s leading collision repair publication, is proud to announce an in-kind donation of more than $10,000 in advertising space to the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
Through FenderBender’s digital media channels, thousands of collision repair professionals will be exposed to the Education Foundation’s continued efforts to fuel the future of the industry.
"FenderBender supports the Collision Repair Education Foundation because they support the future of the industry," says Chris Messer, publisher of FenderBender. "The collision repair industry is fortunate to have the Education Foundation working for its future. We at FenderBender are happy to help connect shops with the organization to enrich opportunities for student education."
“People in the industry may not realize that the Collision Repair Education Foundation has provided over $30 million in donations to collision school programs, with a full-time staff of only four people,” said Brandon Eckenrode, the Education Foundation’s director of development. “Even so, the Education Foundation needs all the help we can get to spread the word about our efforts. We thank FenderBender for being a long-standing supporter of our efforts by donating advertisement space and assisting in our attempts to reach even more industry members.”
