ABRA Auto Body & Glass has donated $81,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation to help support education programs, schools and students.
Approximately $40,000 of the contribution will go to the Fayetteville Technical Community College in Fayetteville, N.C., to support efforts assisting military veterans and civilians transition into the collision repair industry.
Approximately $11,000 of the contribution funded an ABRA-named student scholarship earlier this spring and the company’s participation in the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s career fairs throughout the country this year.
“It’s a great feeling knowing this donation will help play a part in the development and growth of our industry as well as support the advancement of students interested in a career in collision repair,” says David Kuhl, ABRA’s chief people officer.
Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Collision Repair Education Foundations, adds, “We are truly grateful for the long-standing and significant support that ABRA has shown us over the years. Many of these activities would not be possible without the generosity of partners like ABRA Auto Body & Glass.”
