Collision Industry Foundation Raises $12,000 for Detroit Charities

The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) EBay auction, developed as part of the Blanket the City campaign to help distressed communities and specific charities, raised $12,000, for charities in Detroit, one of the hardest-hit of all automotive communities. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the area’s Gleaners Food Bank and Downtown Detroit Partnership.

“We are proud of the outpouring of the collision industry through their donations, which enabled us to conduct this successful auction, and we look forward to delivering funds to these two worthy charities,” said Jeanne Silver, chair of the CIF board of trustees.

The CIF will continue to promote and market the auction within the industry as well as to consumers outside the industry as part of its commitment to Gleaners Food Bank and Downtown Detroit Partnership. The CIF is seeking sizable donations of equipment, software, services and novelty items from industry members, whether specific to the collision industry or not.
