The six schools that received the Mac Tools donations include:

• Manhattan Area Technical College (Manhattan, Kan.)
• Tennessee Technology Center at Shelbyville (Shelbyville, Tenn.)
• Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES at Ellicottville (Ellicottville, N.Y.)
• Tuscola Technology Center (Caro, Mich.)
• Madison Area Technical School (Madison, Wis.)
• Lake Washington Tech College (Kirkland, Wash.)

“The Tennessee Technology Center at Shelbyville deeply appreciates the generous donation of tools from Mac Tools," said Ivan Jones, director of the Tennessee Technology Center at Shelbyville. "With the continued decrease in state appropriations to higher education institutions, this donation allows the TTCS to utilize scarce resources more efficiently. With the additional tools, the learning pace and hands-on learning increases since students do not waste valuable project time waiting for tools to become available. This donation directly helps the quality of the collision repair technology program.”


Added Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode, “I would like to thank Mac Tools for their annual donation of $10,000 of tools to the Collision Repair Education Foundation and joining in our efforts to support the future professionals of the collision industry. Through the collision school programs participating with our Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant, we were able to match their specific request for Mac Tools products and fulfill the requests due to the company’s generosity.”
