June 23, 2015—Service King Collision Repair Centers on Monday presented a donation of $30,000 to the Samaritan Inn, a homeless facility in Collin County, Texas, at the groundbreaking of its Samaritan Inn Village Project.
The Samaritan Inn provides shelter and comprehensive programs that promote self-sufficiency and life skills to meet individual and family needs. Construction on the new family-centered facility is scheduled to begin immediately and plans to open within a 12-month period. Service King’s donation will directly fund the community lounge area, which will be named the Service King Family Lounge.
“The Samaritan Inn is a vital resource for so many Collin County families and individuals seeking assistance,” said Jeff McFadden Service King president. “Likewise, our mission at Service King is to help restore lives to normalcy, and we couldn’t be more humbled to reach out and support such a wonderful organization like the Samaritan Inn. Our desire is for the Service King Family Lounge to serve as a pillar of hope.”
McFadden presented the donation on behalf of Service King to Samaritan Inn Executive Director Lynne Sipiora, who was joined by U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson, city council members and Samaritan Inn staff along with members of the Collin County faith community.
“Our program is only made possible when individuals, the faith community and the business community all come together,” said Sipiora. “We salute Service King as a ‘corporation with conscience’, actively working to make a difference in the world.”
