Collision Repair Education Foundation Invites Industry to Sponsor Local Students’ Uniforms

Kadel’s Auto Body, a multi-shop operator with 17 stores in Oregon, recently sponsored the purchase of uniforms for Portland Community College (PCC) collision students.

“I want to give a huge thanks to Kadel’s Auto Body for the generous sponsorship of uniforms for my students through the Collision Repair Education Foundation," said PCC Collision Instructor George Warneke. "The uniforms help [the students] to feel and look professional as they go out into the workforce. It also has helped them have confidence by looking the part when interviewing for the cooperative work experience, and they feel like part of the team in a shop on the first day.”


Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode, "Over the years, we have found that many industry members aren’t aware of their local collision school programs, and in order to fulfill the industry’s dire need of capable and efficient entry-level workers, we all need to start taking an active role with these collision programs. Sponsoring these work uniforms is a great initial opportunity to support local collision school programs.”

The work uniforms can be sponsored for $50 per student, which includes a pair of Cintas work pants and technician shirt. Those companies that sponsor at least 100 uniforms will have their corporate logo screen printed on the back of the shirts.
