CREF Awards $8,000 Tool Grant to Monroe Technology Center's Auto Collision Program

Monroe Technology Center’s Auto Collision Program is the recipient of an $8,000 tool grant donated by the Collision Repair Education Foundation. CREF contacted the program’s instructor, David Williams, to inform him of their surprise grant.

“The foundation surprised us out-of-the-blue about this,” said Williams. “Within a couple weeks, we have already started receiving some of the tools, which is fantastic for our students. To stay current with industry standard, we need donations like this to offer the best real-world training we can to these high school kids.”

Caliber Collision, formerly known as Craftsman Auto Body, also played a part in MTC’s auto collision program receiving this tool grant.

“Craftsman has proven to be one of our biggest supporters over the years,” said Williams.

The Collision Repair Education Foundation’s mission is to secure and distribute charitable donations to support endeavors that promote, qualify, and properly train employees entering the collision industry. The Foundation has the support of more than 1,000 corporations, businesses, associations and individuals that support the mission and goals of their organization.
