Wilmington, NC – The Automotive Systems Technology and Collision, Repair, and Refinishing Technology programs at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) received a significant donation of automotive tools from the local Porsche Club of America and the British Car Club. These tools will be utilized in the students’ lab work and supplement their toolkits as they begin their professional journeys.

The donation includes a wide range of new and pre-used automotive tools and equipment specifically provided to enhance students’ learning experiences in the program. From diagnostic equipment to essential hand tools, this contribution ensures that students have access to the necessary resources to refine their skills and prepare for the demands of the automotive industry.

“There are many causes that need the help of others,” said Tony Facemire, a Porsche Club of America member. “The Automotive Systems Technology Programs at CFCC are near and dear to the hearts of many sports car owners. We know there is a shortfall in talent for this profession, and we want to play a role in increasing awareness and helping those who have the desire but not the means to succeed.”

In addition to providing tools, this donation represents a collaboration between the local community and the college, highlighting the importance of community involvement in education. Such partnerships enhance the quality of education and open up opportunities for students to connect with industry professionals and enthusiasts who share their passion for automotive technology.
