Brandon Tomes Subaru just wrapped up its 1st inaugural “Share A Pair” Shoe Drive benefitting the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center on Monday, June 3rd.
Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CACCC) provides safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse and neglect in Collin County. Achieving this requires a multi-disciplinary team approach; under one roof we house law enforcement, Child Protective Services, forensic interviewers, therapists, and family advocates. With more than 225 professionals under one roof, CACCC offers therapy and support services, free of charge, for children and non-offending family members, for as long as they are needed. No child is ever turned away.
Children removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect often leave with nothing but the clothes on their back. Caregivers may struggle to meet the unexpected needs of a child in crisis.
CACCC and Brandon Tomes Subaru of McKinney partnered in May 2019 to provide hope and a new start, one step at a time, to children victimized by abuse. Through their “Share A Pair” Shoe Drive, the Brandon Tomes Subaru team in McKinney and its customers donated 1,016 pairs of new shoes for CACCC’s Rainbow Room. The Rainbow Room meets the emergency needs of children and families by providing immediate access to brand new clothing, shoes and hygiene products all completely free of charge. When life is dramatically upside down, something as small as a new pair of shoes can communicate to a child “You Matter.” Thanks to the caring Brandon Tomas Subaru community, over 1,000 children will benefit this summer from their generosity. For many of these children, this pair of shoes may be the only pair of shoes they own, and on behalf of these deserving children, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
