CCC Makes Annual Donation to I-CAR Education Foundation

CCC Information Services Inc. is again presenting a $5,000 contribution to the I-CAR Education Foundation. The donation supports the foundation’s mission to provide programs and services to attract entry-level candidates and ably prepare them for careers in the automobile collision repair industry. CCC has made an annual donation to the I-CAR Education Foundation for more than 10 years.

“With the rate of change in the repair process – from the emergence of new materials to the proliferation of electronics throughout the vehicle – it’s critical that incoming technicians receive the education they need to build a stronger workforce for our industry,” said Joseph Allen, vice president of sales for the Automotive Services Group at CCC Information Services Inc. and I-CAR Education Foundation board trustee. “The I-CAR Education Foundation has taken a leadership role in this effort, helping to ensure that tomorrow’s technician’s get the best training today. As a company, CCC has enjoyed its long tradition of supporting the Foundation and its many positive efforts.”

Among the collaborative efforts is the I-CAR Education Foundation’s administration of the CCC Michael Salvatore Memorial Student Repair Technician Scholarship Program, which was initiated to address the collision repair industry’s need for qualified technicians. The scholarship is in its third consecutive year of operation. 

"Thank you to CCC Information Services for their donation to the I-CAR Education Foundation," said Scott Kruger, executive director of the I-CAR Education Foundation. “As collision schools continue to struggle with their budgets, the Education Foundation helps through school curriculum grants, instructor training grants and student scholarships. This donation will help the Education Foundation achieve their goals and help product the best entry-level technician as possible.”
