For the third year, Bar’s Products has donated its Bar’s Leaks and Rislone products to 280 collision school programs through the Collision Repair Education Foundation, 30 more schools compared to last year’s donation. Collision school instructors responded to a survey asking them what Bar’s Products they would be able to best utilize within their automotive program, and Bar’s Products agreed to ship a case of the requested product to each school. The total monetary value of this product donation is $12,000.
“Collision schools and instructors across the country are facing shrinking budgets for their programs and are in need of tools, equipment and supplies for their students’ instruction. I would like to thank Bar’s Products for coming to the aid of 280 schools through their third annual product offering,” said Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Scott Kruger. “Bar’s Products has been a continued supporter of the Collision Repair Education Foundation and the collision school programs, instructors, and students are the direct beneficiaries of this support.”
Thomas Boyarsky, auto body and small engines instructor at James T. Hutchinson High School in Fairbanks, Alaska, said, “Thank you so very much to Bar’s Leaks and Rislone for the recent donation. Donations like these help our programs thrive and we are always appreciative.”
“All the team members at Bar’s Leaks and Rislone believe that the future success of the automotive industry is greatly dependant on the efforts of organization like the Collision Repair Education Foundation. It is not only our duty to support their efforts, but we take great pride in it as well, “said Jim Moffitt, Bar’s Leaks and Rislone vice president of sales and marketing.
