In a fight against veteran unemployment, Central Collision Center has become a supporting member of Hire Our Heroes, a campaign designed to help veterans and their families find employment in the collision repair field.
Central Collision is participating in this nationwide campaign through 3M Collision Repair Solutions’ Automotive Aftermarket Division, which will donate funds to the Collision Repair Education Foundation and Operation Comfort.
Funds donated to the Collision Repair Education Foundation will provide grants and scholarships to help cover tuition, classroom materials, tools and equipment for returning veterans. Donations to Operation Comfort will support rehabilitation for wounded veterans through an automotive skill-based rehabilitation program.
“I know firsthand how hard it is to return from service and start a career,” said Mike Caruso, owner of Central Collision and U.S. military veteran. “I’m grateful 3M has created this opportunity for our industry to help.”
