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.

ALLDATA to Assist 200 Collision Schools with Subscription Donation

ALLDATA will be donating a one-year subscription of ALLDATA S3500 through the Collision Repair Education Foundation to select post-secondary collision school programs, schools instructing both secondary and post-secondary collision students, and those schools that have previously applied for the Education Foundation's Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant. The ALLDATA S3500 subscriptions will be offered to the nearly 200 schools that do not have an existing ALLDATA Collision account. This subscription donation from ALLDATA to the schools is valued at $345,135, depending on the number of schools that take advantage of the opportunity, and will ease collision department budgets by providing students with the opportunity to gain access to the latest in collision repair technical information.

Collision Repair Education Foundation Board of Trustees Chairman Chris Northup said, "Collision instructors and their students having access to the latest repair technical information is vital for the industry's future repair professionals education. Through ALLDATA's subscription donation, this is possible, and on behalf of the organization, the Board of Trustees, and the schools across the country that this will benefit, I thank ALLDATA for their continued support."
