CIF Extends Assistance to Victims of Puerto Rico and CA Natural Disasters

The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) announced on Oct. 23 that its current relief efforts to Hurricane Harvey and Irma victims would be extended to those affected by the fires in California, as well as the Hurricane damage to Puerto Rico.  

CIF has raised funds that are being distributed directly to all industry professionals, including body techs, painters, CSRs, estimators, adjusters, paint distributors and all other professionals in the collective collision repair industry.  


"Our focus has widened as these other natural disasters have impacted more collision industry professionals beyond Hurricanes Harvey and Irma," stated William Shaw, CIF Chair and PPG Director of Business Development. "We are prepared to help more thanks to the generous donations by the industry at large."

"Our committee of volunteers contacts and vets those seeking aid and ensures that all donations are going directly to our fellow industry professionals," stated Michael Quinn, CIF Relief Chair. "We have local ‘boots on the ground’ who are getting the word out and vetting individuals and repair facilities."
