FRAM, TRICO Donate To Cal FIRE Benevolent Foundation


Recommended Posts

FRAM and TRICO – part of First Brands Group family of companies – have donated $40,000 to the CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation to benefit the families of firefighters who are supported by the charitable organization.

The donation was made at the No One Left Behind Spring Tribute Golf Tournament.

First Brands Group Senior Director of Sales Nathan Giles and Director of Sales Erick Esparza were onsite to present CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation President/CEO Kevin O’Meara with the check on behalf of FRAM and TRICO during the post-tournament reception.

“We are proud to partner with such a remarkable organization,” said Giles. “The impact that the CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation has on area firefighters and their families cannot be overstated, and we are truly honored to be able to support its lifechanging mission.”

During the presentation of the donation check, O’Meara voiced his gratitude on behalf of the CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation.

“This generous donation will go a long way in helping our firefighters and their families in their time of need,” he said.

More than 140 golfers participated in the team tournament on May 16 at Half Moon Bay Golf Links. The event was held to benefit firefighters and their families who have suffered a debilitating injury, loss of life, were burned on duty, have an illness or need financial assistance.

The tournament began with a post-registration breakfast before a shotgun start accompanied by CAL FIRE Local 2881’s Honor Guard & Pipes and Drums. The event concluded with a silent auction, awards ceremony, check presentation and reception dinner.

Firefighters from CAL FIRE Local 2881 formed the CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation to engage in charitable and educational activities in support of the families of firefighters facing financial need. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit also assists burn victims while funding critical research around the occupational hazards facing firefighters.

      Advance Auto Parts Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Advance Auto Parts, recently announced the first five recipients of its scholarship commitment to Wake Technical Community College (Wake Tech) and its new Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence.
      The scholarships are part of a larger commitment by the Advance Auto Parts Foundation that also includes a first-of-its-kind recruitment initiative aimed at increasing student diversity in the school’s automotive systems technology and collision repair programs to help address the nationwide technician shortage. 
      Over the next five years, Advance Auto Parts Foundation will support 25 students enrolled in Wake Tech’s automotive degree programs by funding $5,000 unrestricted scholarships for each student to offset educational and living expenses, plus a one-time $600 stipend to purchase tools needed for studies.
      The first five recipients of these scholarships were nominated by high school guidance counselors and selected by Wake Tech. They include:  
      ·       Bryant Torres Garcia ofEast Wake High School  
      ·       Amiya Hall of South Garner High School 
      ·       Alexander Kirschenbauer of East Wake High School  
      ·       Waylen Bryce McLeod of East Wake High School 
      ·       Javai Thomas O’Briant of East Wake High School  
      These scholarship recipients will begin their training in the Automotive Systems Technology degree program in the fall 2022 semester.  
      “Automotive repair jobs offer competitive pay, the opportunity to continue learning new skills and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping someone get their vehicle back on the road safely,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance Auto Parts. “Despite the many positives associated with careers in our industry, the technician shortage is worsening. This is one of the reasons we are so thrilled to partner with Wake Tech and help support students from all backgrounds and experiences who want to explore careers in automotive service and repair.”  
      The scholarship announcement follows the opening of Wake Tech’s new $42 million Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence, a more than 100,000-square-foot facility on the college’s Scott Northern Wake Campus in Raleigh. The new facility allows the college to triple the number of students in its automotive systems technology program and add a new collision repair program.  
      “The Advance Auto Parts Foundation’s support enables us to directly address automotive technician workforce and diversity needs,” said Scott Ralls, president of Wake Technical Community College. “We are grateful to Advance for their partnership in awarding the scholarships and within the larger programs that our new Hendrick Center supports.” 
      In addition to a $200,000 gift from the Advance Auto Parts Foundation, Advance Auto Parts contributed $50,000 to outfit new tool rooms that support student learning. The tool rooms are branded DieHard in celebration of DieHard’s new lifetime-warranty hand tools, which exceed ANSI/ASME standards and feature an anti-slip open-end design on all combination wrenches, a driver handle designed for more ergonomic shape and a line of ratchets created for better wear resistance and strength than other bit materials, according to the company.

      FRAM announced that it has finalized a partnership with driver Daniel Suárez for the 2022 season of the NASCAR Cup Series.
      Suárez will represent FRAM starting with the Bluegreen Vacations Duel at Daytona on February 17.
      Suárez, who will be competing in his sixth season this year, will be driving the No. 99 Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet. He says he is proud to carry the FRAM name as he competes at the highest level of stock car racing.
      “FRAM is a brand I have loved and used in almost all of my cars for many years, and this affiliation is not only very organic, but also a partnership that speaks my language,” said Suárez. “Aside from being an amazing product for any car, FRAM’s ethos and what they stand for is something that really resonates with me: a product that anyone can easily use, from an experienced mechanic to a mom or dad trying to change their filter in their own car. I feel proud to be a FRAM athlete, and I will wear that badge with honor.”
      Suárez grew up working alongside his father, Alejandro, in a car-restoration shop in his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. It was there, in his father’s garage, where he was first introduced to FRAM filters and where he adopted a do-it-yourself approach to vehicle maintenance and repair.
      “FRAM is proud to partner with Daniel Suárez. His history with the brand made this partnership a natural fit, and we look forward to working together this season,” said Patrick Reyes, marketing manager for FRAM. “Daniel’s NASCAR success and his restoration of old cars is the perfect blend of the historical tradition and innovative excellence that the FRAM brand stands for.”
      With a legacy that goes back decades, FRAM provides a full set of filtration products to keep contaminants under control in critical spaces. Oil flow, engine air filtration and clean cabin air can all be protected with FRAM filters.

      Steve Bernasek, diesel technologies instructor and team lead for automotive programs at the East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) in Mesa, Arizona, has been named the 2021 Byrl Shoemaker Instructor of the Year by the ASE Education Foundation.
      Bernasek received his award during the recent ASE Board of Governors meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona.
      An ASE-certified technician for the past 22 years, Bernasek has taught at EVIT since 2016. He serves as the team lead of the diesel, automotive technologies and collision repair programs. EVIT offers over 40 career training programs for high school students and adults, and EVIT’s automotive programs have had a history of success as retired EVIT teacher Randy Baker also was named the Byrl Shoemaker award winner in 2015.
      This prestigious award is named after Byrl Shoemaker, the past executive director of vocational education in Ohio.
