Collision Repair Education Foundation Seeking Support For Collision Programs

To kick-start the back-to-school giving, MCR Safety has donated 50,000 pairs of safety glasses and goggles to the Collision Repair Education Foundation that will be distributed to schools across the country.

coll829High school and college collision school programs across the country are beginning, and the Collision Repair Education Foundation is seeking the industry’s support in helping instructors with donated collision tools, equipment, supplies, products, scrap parts and other related items. As instructors continue to face limited collision budgets, the industry is invited to help in providing in-kind product donations, which are tax-deductible, that can assist in helping to provide a quality technical education to the students.

To kickstart the back-to-school giving, MCR Safety has donated 50,000 pairs of safety glasses and goggles to the Collision Repair Education Foundation that will be distributed to schools across the country. This donation will greatly assist students in staying safe within their collision programs, and it will be one less item that instructors need to worry about budgeting for.

“MCR Safety is proud to be able to assist with these donations,” said MCR Safety Chief Operating Officer Glen Herald. “I encourage others to do the same with overstocked inventory.”

Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode added, “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. Instructors have very limited budgets, and every bit of assistance helps them provide the best technical education possible. Also, we cannot thank MCR Safety enough for their continued support of donated safety glasses as they easily have donated more than 100,000 pairs within the past several years, and it’s always touching when you receive phone calls from instructors who are emotional over the fact these types of donations mean the world to them due to their budgetary restraints.”

Those interested in joining the Collision Repair Education Foundation in supporting local collision school programs should contact Eckenrode at [email protected] or call 847-463-5244.
