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.

Service King has joined the Collision Repair Education Foundation's Industry Leadership Circle donor recognition group through a $10,000 donation, which will provide post-secondary collision student scholarships near Service King's repair facilities markets.

"We are honored to be able to contribute to such an important foundation," said Danny Wilkins, Associate Vice President of Staffing and Development for Service King Collision Repair Centers. He added, "Supporting collision repair education is key to growing the industry so that we continue employing highly skilled technicians and painters for years to come. We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to a lasting partnership."

Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Clark Plucinski said, "Thanks to Service King for supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation and joining our efforts in supporting collision repair school programs and their students. Through Service King's donation, collision students located near their repair facilities will have the opportunity to apply for financial support this upcoming spring. We welcome Service King to this group of industry leaders and commend them on providing support opportunities for collision students in their markets."
