Richardson, TX - Service King Collision Repair Centers, as part of the organization's continued dedication to enriching local communities, recently presented a check in the amount of $100,000 to representatives from SafeHaven of Tarrant County. The presentation was made possible through contributions raised from Service King's annual DFW Golf Event hosted in October at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas.
SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County, Texas providing no-cost services to domestic violence survivors. This month's presentation marked Service King's second consecutive annual contribution to the non-profit organization, as the 2015 DFW Golf Tournament raised $70,000 for SafeHaven and its numerous support and shelter programs.
"We are elated to be the beneficiary of this year's golf tournament," said Kathryn Jacob, President and CEO of SafeHaven of Tarrant County. "This gift will provide safety and support to hundreds of families affected by domestic violence. Service King continues to set the standard for service in our community and we are proud to consider them a partner."
In 2015, SafeHaven provided protection to 664 women and 896 in emergency shelter. The shelter also provides domestic violence survivors with a variety of services and support aimed at establishing self-sufficiency. Through its housing programs, families are provided a secure environment while simultaneously obtaining life skills, education and improvised employment opportunities.
Service King, which is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2016, operates more than 300 high-quality collision repair centers in 23 states across the U.S.
