We prioritize our involvement in the communities that we serve. We have a strong belief in giving back – providing not just cash donations to local charities but services that represent our business to those in need. As a family-oriented business, we work hard to ensure we add value to the communities around our locations. Our service goes beyond auto repairs.
We are a member of the Recycled Rides Program, a nationwide, non-profit project, organized by the National Auto Body Council. Every year Gates Collision Centers repairs and donates a vehicle to a family in need, chosen by a local community organization.
The Youth Apprenticeship Program gives students valuable knowledge of the working world. Through the program, the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce recruits students from local schools and partners them with local businesses. A curriculum is followed and students document their various field experiences.
Chambers of Commerce serve the community as a whole, including local businesses and industries. As more locations are added to Gates Collision Centers, the number of communities we contribute to continues to grow.
