Allstate Donates $95,000 to Collision Repair Education Foundation

Allstate Insurance Company has displayed its commitment to the future of the collision industry by contributing $95,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation. Allstate’s donation enhances the Education Foundation’s ability to offer grants and scholarships to career and technical schools and colleges and the students attending these schools.

The $95,000 contribution from Allstate will support the Foundation’s Collision Repair Education Campaign fund, which funds annual student scholarships, school grants, and the annual Ultimate Collision Education Makeover $50,000 school grant.

“Automotive design, technology and materials continue to evolve and require knowledgeable technicians that are properly educated regarding safe and effective repair methods,” said Pam Overton, Allstate’s claims vice president. “The Collision Repair Education Foundation plays a significant role in the industry by generating awareness and funding for organizations that provide meaningful career opportunities in the field, and Allstate is proud to support that mission.”

Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Clark Plucinski, “The Collision Repair Education Foundation is able to keep its doors open on through our supporters and contributors. Allstate’s donation, the largest monetary donation that we have received in 2012, assists the organization in continuing to provide support to secondary and post-secondary collision school programs, students and instructors. Allstate has nearly surpassed the $1 million total donation mark throughout the Education Foundation’s lifetime and without their support, the Education Foundation couldn’t fuel the future of the collision industry like it has over the years.”
