Service King Collision Repair Centers and its Texas-based teammates recently hosted a pair of charity golf tournaments that combined to contribute more than $75,000 between Safe Place of Austin and The Arbor School in Houston.

The two tournaments took place May 2nd and May 16th, as Service King teammates continued the organization’s ongoing commitment to serve local communities in forms that stretch beyond collision repair.

“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 show up and make a real impact by putting their energies and dollars into making their communities stronger through their support,” said JuliAnna Jelinek, executive director of The Arbor School. “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.”

The Arbor School provides students with developmental disabilities a one-of-a-kind intensive educational program with 1:1 or 2:1 student/teacher ratios. Its vision is to provide hope and opportunity for any child with developmental delays. Service King’s $50,000 contribution will go directly to offsetting The Arbor School’s operational costs, as its tuition cannot cover it alone.

“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,” said Jeff McFadden, Service King president. “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.”

Safe Place of Austin provides on-campus services for individuals and families affected by sexual and domestic violence and partners with community leaders to curb attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate acceptance of such crimes.

Service King has hosted numerous charity events in support of the organization in recent years, contributing more than $500,000 to local non-profit organizations in 2015.
