Spanesi Americas has donated a Multibench 12, valued at $25,000, to Waubonsee Community College of Sugar Grove, Ill., the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 2013 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover-winning college school. In addition to the company’s in-kind equipment donation to the school, Spanesi Americas Managing Director Timothy Morgan has also made a $1,000 personal donation to the organization.
“The Spanesi family has always been dedicated to education, as I am myself. And knowing that over 80 percent of the repairs performed today in a collision facility don’t need the traditional ‘frame rack,’ we felt it necessary to donate to the Education Foundation what shops are making ‘real world’ repairs on now and in the future,” said Morgan. “Helping give students and a school equipment that meets today’s and tomorrow’s needs through the Foundation’s Makeover is something I am no stranger to, participating through past companies I managed and continuing to support personally.”
Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Clark Plucinski, “I cannot thank Tim enough for being a consistent supporter of the Education Foundation over the years both at the corporate and personal level. The donated equipment will greatly benefit Waubonsee’s ability to graduate collision students who will have worked on up-to-date equipment. Through Tim’s generous personal monetary donation, the Education Foundation can work towards helping the future professionals of the industry.”
