Service King Donates $65,000 to Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County, Texas

Service King Collision Repair Centers made a special delivery to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County in Texas on Dec. 18. The Richardson-based company presented a check for $65,000 as a result of its 20th Annual DFW Golf Event hosted earlier this year.

The tournament, which attracted more than 300 golfers to Stonebriar Country Club in October, has steadily evolved into a longstanding North Texas tradition.

“It has been an honor to give back to Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County," said Christine Barry, Service King DFW Regional Business Development Manager. “We understand that service extends beyond the walls of our more than 30 DFW locations and we are proud to support organizations like the Advocacy Center that provide critical services to our community.”

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CACCC) is the only agency in Collin County that provides comprehensive services, free of charge, that are designed to ensure the safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse or neglect. Targeting the reduction of trauma, all services take place in a safe, child-friendly atmosphere where trained professionals work to restore the dignity, hope and trust that these children and families need to heal. Since opening their doors in 1992, over 50,000 children have received at least one core service from the CACCC.

“We are so proud of our partnership with Service King. The funds they contribute through their golf tournament ensure that the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is able to provide all the services that children need to heal after suffering the trauma of abuse or neglect,” said Lynee McLean, CEO of Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. “Thanks to their generosity, these children have a future of hope and promise. Service King is a great example of what companies can do to strengthen our communities and create a healthy future for children.”

Service King, one of the nation’s largest operators of collision repair services, has been operating in Dallas since its founding in 1976.
