TCEA Attendees Donate SOCS Socks to Austin’s SafePlace

On Friday February 7, SafePlace received 100 pairs of socks donated generously by conference attendees at the recent TCEA 2014 Convention and Exposition in Austin, Texas.

Playing off our company name, our representatives typically give away socks as a promotional item at our many conferences. These socks will now benefit survivors of domestic violence and their families, in addition to our donation of $100 to support SafePlace and their mission.

“This year, we wanted to make a difference in the community of Austin,” said Dan Kunzman, SOCS marketing vice president. “Texas has been hit hard this winter so we thought our socks could make more of an impact on a local nonprofit. As a nonprofit ourselves, we chose SafePlace because of their longstanding commitment to help those with great need within their community.”

As a pillar of the Austin community for over 40 years, SafePlace helps survivors of sexual and domestic violence as they work to rebuild their lives away from their abuser.

“Every donation, no matter the size, is so appreciated. It’s all about helping our clients,” remarked Sidney Davis, Donations Coordinator at SafePlace.
