“Now more than ever do local high school and college collision school programs need the industry’s assistance and investment and a perfect time to help these instructors is as they begin their fall semester,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Education Foundation. “If a company is not currently involved with a local school, we can help connect them. In addition to helping the collision program, the school administration seeing that local businesses are interested in their students goes a long way.”

Items in need for donation for collision school programs include (donations are tax-deductible through the Collision Repair Education Foundation):

  • Supplies (sandpaper, masking tape, primer, paint, etc.)
  • Spare parts (fenders, bumper covers, etc.) for students to practice on
  • Technician uniform sponsorship to promote professionalism
  • Used laptops/tablets for estimating classes
  • Safety equipment (respirators, safety glasses, etc.)
  • Floor and wall paint sponsorship to help ensure the program looks professional for current and future students

Companies interested in donating and/or sponsoring items to local high school and college collision school programs should contact Eckenrode at [email protected] or 847-463-5244.
