HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – March 17, 2014 – Spanesi Americas has donated a Multibench 12, valued at $25,000 to Waubonsee Community College (Sugar Grove, IL), the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 2013 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover winning college school. In addition to the company’s in-kind equipment donation to the school, Spanesi Americas Managing Director Timothy Morgan has also made a $1000 personal donation to the organization.
Timothy Morgan, Managing Director of Spanesi Americas, noted, “The Spanesi family has always been dedicated to education as I am myself. And knowing that over 80 percent of the repairs performed today in a collision facility don’t need the traditional ‘frame rack’ we felt it necessary to donate to the Education Foundation what shops are making ‘real world’ repairs on now and in the future. Helping give students and a school equipment that meets todays and tomorrow’s needs through the Foundation’s Makeover is something I am no stranger too, participating through past companies I managed and continue to support personally.”
Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Clark Plucinski noted, “I cannot thank Tim enough for being a consistent supporter of the Education Foundation over the years both at the corporate and personal level. The donated equipment will greatly benefit Waubonsee’s ability to graduate collision students who will have worked on up-to-date equipment. Through Tim’s generous personal monetary donation the Education Foundation can work towards helping the future professionals of the industry.”
