Automotive Recyclers Association Pledges $50,000 in Parts to Education Foundation

The Automotive Recyclers Association has pledged to help provide $50,000 in donated parts to secondary and post-secondary collision school programs across the country through the Collision Repair Education Foundation over the next year. Working and communicating with the association’s members, local recyclers will donate parts to school’s collision programs and help allow the students to practice collision repair work on current model vehicles.

The 71 schools that applied for the Education Foundation’s 2011 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant will be provided the initial opportunity for donated parts, and the program will then be offered to schools that have participated in the organizations past support opportunities.

Automotive Recyclers Association Educational Foundation Managing Director Ginny Whelan said, “This is a win-win for both foundations: educating students in collision repair on the value of green recycled parts and assisting schools nationwide in need of financial assistance to improve their programs. These collision repair students are our future customers.”

Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Scott Kruger said, “In speaking with school instructors across the country, one of the most highly requested items for their collision programs are current model vehicle parts for their students to work on. Automotive Recyclers Association’s pledge of working with their members and donating at least $50,000 in parts over the next year will greatly assist these collision programs and the students’ repair education.”
