CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts has a long history of supporting America’s military members, and is stepping up that effort with national support for the new 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign.
3M recognizes the need for qualified technicians in the collision repair industry and has created an opportunity for returning veterans to find rewarding careers with the right education and support.
CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts is supporting 3M effort’s in partnering with the Collision Repair Education Foundation to provide scholarships and support for collision repair training, and ultimately to drive employment in the collision repair industry for America’s returning veterans.
The enrollment to win scholarship funds from the Collision Repair Education Foundation opened on January 1, 2013 and scholarship enrollment opportunities remain open through May 15, 2013. For additional information and to apply, visit www.CollisionEducationFoundation.org. Scholarships are available for qualifying returning veterans and their immediate family members. Scholarships may be used for tuition, school fees, tools, textbooks and equipment at qualifying technical schools.
The 3M Hire Our Heroes program also will help fund rehabilitation for the wounded veterans through Operation Comfort’s Automotivation program, a unique automotive skill-based rehabilitation program. It provides opportunities for wounded soldiers to channel their automotive skills – or learn new ones – to restore vehicles through the NABC Recycled Rides program for other military veterans.
The campaign will be raising funds for their new facility in San Antonio, Texas. For more information on the Automotivation program, visit www.operationcomfort.org/automotivation.
