A Dallas trade school is among four construction trade programs selected to benefit from a Bosch brand donation that includes power tools, measuring tools, and accessories valued at more than $20,000 total.

Bosch Group will donate thousands of dollars’ worth of power tools to the Career Institute North Trade High School Program in Dallas alongside high school and pre-college construction trade programs in three other cities as part of the company’s Giving Tuesday initiative, according to a news release.

“This Giving Tuesday, Bosch Power Tools is donating over $20,000 worth of tools and accessories to local trade schools, continuing their ongoing support towards the next generation of workers,” reads the press release.

According to Bosch Group, the donation will help support students’ learning and development with hands-on skill-building experiences in the classroom, which is particularly important as the demand for skilled workers across the U.S. reaches new heights, the company says.

“As a company dedicated to hard work on the jobsite and in the community, we recognize the importance of investing in the local organizations that are empowering the workforce of tomorrow,” said Teresa Sabatino, director of brand marketing for Bosch Power Tools North America.

“Bosch Power Tools is proud to partner with these four distinguished trade school programs this Giving Tuesday to help ensure students are ready for work their first day on a professional jobsite, while also doing our part to help address the skilled trades gap.”

In addition to the trade school in Dallas, the company is also donating Bosch Power Tools to the Construction Careers Academy in San Antonio, the ROC Construction Skills Training Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Building Construction Academy at Bowers/Whitley in Tampa, Florida.

“Our school is incredibly grateful for Bosch Power Tools’ donation and continued partnership, knowing we both value hard work and strive to empower the workers of tomorrow,” said Krista Ackles, vice principal of San Antonio’s Construction Careers Academy High School.

The Dallas Express reached out to Career Institute North for comment but the trade school was not immediately available.
