Each year, advances in technology and safety are made in the automotive industry. In order to further research in these fields, State Farm Insurance Company annually donates a vehicle to Dunwoody College's Collision Repair and Refinishing Program, according to a press release.
The vehicles provide hard-to-find structural repair training and advanced vehicle systems training for the students. The cars are sold after the students and faculty fix them. State Farm stipulates that any net profit on the vehicles they donate be used for equipment for the collision program.
A representative from State Farm said, "this collaboration supports improvement in the collision repair process - something that benefits our customers, repairers and State Farm. It also makes a positive impact on the environment."
He added that donating vehicles helps reduce the amount of waste added to our nation's landfills.
Dunwoody's connection with State Farm began with alumnus Bob Roiger, an estimatics trainer for the company. Roiger graduated in 1978 from the Collision Repair and Refinishing program.
