Collision repair is about people helping people

who find themselves in a difficult situation, often through no fault of their own. It’s not just about putting cars back together — it’s about making people whole again. The collision repair community — including body shops, paint, parts, equipment and insurance companies — has been doing this for a long time.

And sometimes, the collision industry goes above and beyond the call of duty to make things a little bit brighter for those less fortunate. This section honors the shops and suppliers that take that additional step.

3M Aids Collision Schools with $250,000 Product Donation

3M is helping 312 secondary and post-secondary collision school programs nationwide by donating more than 15,000 rolls of 3/4" tape and more than 22,000 rolls of 2" tape through the Collision Repair Education Foundation. This donation, with a monetary value of roughly $250,000, will help ease the pain of budget cuts on these programs.

Mark Algie, Business Development Manager of the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division notes, "We believe in what the Collision Repair Education Foundation stands for and this is just our simple way in which we can help as many schools as possible. It is our hope that these donations help in some small way, so that the students, schools and ultimately the industry will benefit."

Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode said, "3M has again gone above and beyond to help collision educators across the country in providing them with up-to-date materials to ensure their students receive a proper technical education. I thank 3M for their continued support and taking an active role in assisting the collision school programs."
