May 26, 2016—Service King Collision Repair Centers announced Wednesday that it recently hosted a pair of golf tournaments that raised more than $75,000 for Safe Place of Austin and The Arbor School in Houston.
The Arbor School provides an intensive educational program for students with developmental disabilities with one-to-one or two-to-one student/teacher ratios. Service King’s $50,000 contribution will help pay for the school’s operational costs.
“There are so many organizations who talk about being committed to their communities and then there are organizations, like Service King, who don’t just talk about it, but they show up and make a real impact by putting their energies and dollars into making their communities stronger through their support,” executive director of The Arbor School JuliAnna Jelinek said. “The Arbor School is so blessed to be on the receiving end of Service King’s efforts, and we could not be more thankful for the $50,000 gift that is helping us give more students with special needs the educational home they need and deserve.”
Safe Place of Austin provides services for individuals and families affected by sexual and domestic violence, while partnering with community leaders to work to eliminate behaviors and attitudes that lead to these crimes.
“This was truly a special time for all Service King teammates as we continue in our mission of connecting and supporting the heart of our local communities,” Service King president Jeff McFadden said. “We cherish our relationships with both Safe Place and The Arbor School and it’s a privilege to support their great initiatives across South Texas and the surrounding areas.”
