Tools for Schools

As technology is always changing, Blain’s Farm and Fleet updates their automotive service center equipment in all stores on a continuous basis. The older equipment is sent to Blain Supply, Inc. where it is cleaned and refurbished, then donated to local high schools near the Janesville area who are in need of shop equipment. Many High Schools are not able to offer a “shop class” due to the constant change in technology and the cost of the equipment. Blain’s is proud to donate the slightly used equipment for students in order to learn from and use for practice. This is the second time this has been done but due to the positive reaction, may continue to be an annual donation to the schools in need.
