3M Automotive Aftermarket Division to Thank Military Veteran Body Shop Employees with Special Contest

Between now and August 31st, shop owners can nominate a veteran co-worker and share what makes them a great employee. Ten winners will be drawn, and each will win a trip for two for an expense-paid trip to join Chip Foose at a Texas NASCAR race.

3m-logo3M Automotive Aftermarket Division (AAD) announced it is offering the opportunity for body shop owners to say “thank you” to their veteran employees with a special contest.

Send a Hero to a NASCAR Race

3M AAD believes that our nation’s military veterans make great employees for the collision repair industry. To show support and appreciation, 3M AAD is offering a chance for shop owners to recognize and honor a military veteran employee and have a chance to win a trip for both owner and employee to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race in Texas on November 6th.

Between now and 11:59:59 p.m. CT on August 31st, shop owners can visit http://3mcollision.com/HonorVets to nominate a veteran co-worker and share what makes them a great employee. Ten winners will be drawn, and each will win a trip for two (the nominator and the veteran) for an expense-paid trip to join Chip Foose at the Texas race.

“There are so many great veterans doing incredible work in body shops across the country,” said Dale Ross, U.S. marketing operations manager at 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division. “We are looking forward to honoring some of those veterans who are making a positive impact on the collision repair industry – and those who have hired them – with a special trip to see the NASCAR race in Texas.”

3M AAD’s pledge to help veterans has seen great success. Through a partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), 3M has donated more than $750,000 since 2013 which has been used toward scholarships and tool grants for nearly 210 military veterans and their families through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program.

2016 Features 3M Hire Our Heroes Calendar and Commemorative Chip Foose Hood

The 2016 3M Hire Our Heroes program included a 2016 3M Hire Our Heroes Calendar with military photos and memorable quotes.

“We have already had a lot of success with the 2016 3M Hire Our Heroes Calendar,” said Ross. “For those who have not yet participated, the Chip Foose-designed commemorative hood will be the perfect addition to encourage more shop owners to donate to a great cause like the Collision Repair Education Foundation.”

There is still plenty of time to get the 2016 calendar. With a $200 donation to the CREF, shops participating in the Hire Our Heroes June promotion will receive the calendar, window decal, almost $1,000 in free goods and a commemorative hood custom designed by Chip Foose.

“There’s still time to make your donation to the Hire Our Heroes campaign,” said Foose. “There’s no better way than to welcome America’s heroes home with the training and the tools for the collision repair industry.”
