3M Automotive Aftermarket's "Hire Our Heroes"
In 2013 Hire Our Heroes contributed $250,000 to charities, including the Collision Repair Education Foundation based on sales of select popular 3M products. We'll continue supporting that effort in 2014.
This year, 3M Automotive Aftermarket will expand the Hire Our Heroes program to continue to serve those who served our country. The 2014 program will again include a goal of $250,000 in grants and support for collision repair training delivered through the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF).
And this year, CREF and 3M are creating a job matching service to connect graduates of the collision repair programs with auto body shops looking for skilled, qualified employees.
Grants are available for qualifying returning veterans and family members. Grants may be used for tuition, school fees, tools, textbooks and equipment at qualifying technical schools. For additional information and to apply, visit CollisionEducationFoundation.org.
This year, distributor sales professionals who lead the effort can also earn a trip to a NASCAR race in Bristol, Tenn., or a trip to SEMA, the largest automotive show in America.
