The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced that it has received a $35,000 donation from Caliber Collision that will support several specific initiatives for collision school programs in the Atlanta, Houston and Dallas markets. Caliber is also donating $5,000 to the foundation’s Collision Repair Education Campaign fund, which boosts the organization’s ability to offer grants and scholarships to career and technical schools and colleges and the students attending these schools.
“Over the next 10 years, the industry will need thousands of new, technology-savvy professionals dedicated to quality work and outstanding customer service,” said Caliber Collision President and COO Mark Sanders. “Caliber’s support of the Collision Repair Education Foundation is one of the many ways that we’re investing in our collision repair future today.”
Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Clark Plucinski, “I would like to thank Caliber Collision for their continued support of the Collision Repair Education Foundation. As we work towards providing support to local collision school programs and their graduating collision students having the proper, entry-level skill sets, Caliber’s donation allows us to help provide the needed tools and equipment for the programs to be successful.”
