Collision repair shops can support veterans through the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division (AAD) Hire Our Heroes program in conjunction with the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
In partnership with the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division (AAD), the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) announced it has donated more than $750,000 since 2013 to be used toward scholarships and tool grants for more than 210 military veterans and their families through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program.
In 2017, 3M AAD and CREF will mark the fifth year of the program, and continuing an innovative way for shops to get involved, both organizations will be facilitating the second annual 3M Hire Our Heroes Calendar for 2017. With a $200 donation to the Collision Repair Education Foundation, designated to the 3M Hire Our Heroes fund, shops will not only be giving to a worthy cause, they will also receive the commemorative calendar which contains approximately $1,700 worth of monthly deals on 3M products. In 2016, this initiative raised $210,000 for scholarships and tool grants distributed to military veterans and their family members who are studying collision repair.
