Ingersoll Rand Donates $10,000 in Tools to Collision Repair Education Foundation

Donation will go to Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 2012 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover winning schools.

Ingersoll Rand has donated $10,000 to the collision programs of Nichols Career Center (Jefferson City, Mo.) and Manhattan Area Technical College (Manhattan, Kan.), the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 2012 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover winning schools. Each school’s collision instructor was able to select $5,000 in Ingersoll Rand products.

“In many cases, students are required to purchase their own tools or even share amongst each other in the shop," said Kimberly Versaw, Ingersoll Rand industrial technologies marketing specialist, Vehicle Services. "Ingersoll Rand finds it imperative that students receive quality tools at a great price in order to fill their toolbox for future roles in the automotive, agricultural or welding industries. The Ingersoll Rand Student Program is designed to do just that, and with the help of the Collision Repair Education Foundation, more schools can provide top-notch tools in the classroom.”

Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode, “I would like to thank Ingersoll Rand for their support of the Collision Repair Education Foundation and our makeover grant program. In addition to this donation, Ingersoll Rand also donated mechanic gloves to the Education Foundation that will help keep collision students safe in their classroom and shop area. It’s only through industry members like Ingersoll Rand coming together to support collision school programs and their students will our industry’s future be brighter.”
