Auto repair students receive donation

Friday, August 9, 2013

Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Shelbyville (formerly known as Tennessee Technology Center) has received another donation for students studying automobile repair.

UniCure Spraybooths has donated more than $10,000 worth of equipment and uniforms to the Shelbyville school and Wiregrass Georgia Technical College in Valdosta.

By making the donation, UniCure joined the Collision Repair Education Foundation's donor Industry Leadership Circle. The equipment includes intake and exhaust filters, JetAir waterborne fans, and additional miscellaneous items.

Additional supplies

In addition to the equipment, UniCure will also sponsor 100 sets of Cintas work shirts and pants uniforms for students.

"It is a privilege to work with these schools. I am glad that we are able to provide them with products and support that will enhance their paint departments," said Allen Jenkins, president of UniCure Spraybooths/Interstate Marketing Corporation in a press release. "It is always rewarding when you get to give back."

This isn't the first donation TCAT-S has received from the Foundation. In June, the Center received part of a $10,000 donation from Mac Tool, which went to five other tech schools.
