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.

The Collision Repair Education Foundation and 3M announced 59 winners for the first round of the Hire Our Heroes awards. The winners include 54 students that are currently studying collision repair, and who have served or are currently serving in the military. Each winning student had the opportunity to select $2,500 worth of tools to help them in their education and for employment after graduation.

In addition, five collision students that have immediate family members that served or are serving in the military were selected as scholarship winners. Each student received a $2,500 scholarship to help with their education costs.

"We're proud to work with the Collision Repair Education Foundation to support training for these deserving veterans and their family members, and we are excited about these young men and women joining our industry," said Dale Ross, U.S. Marketing Operations Manager for 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division.
