Sonitrol Pacific recently made a donation on behalf of our client, Insulation Contractors Inc., as part of our Season of Sharing program. The people at Insulation Contractors referred a new client to Sonitrol Pacific and asked we forward their “thank you” bonus to the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center. We were happy to oblige.

A few days ago, we received this thank you note from Mary Ellen Stone, the Executive Director at KCSARC.

Dear James,

Thank you so much for Sonitrol Pacific’s generous donation of $300.00 to King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC) through the “Season of Sharing Program.” KCSARC has served the community of over 32 years, providing critical services to thousands of children, families and adults. We are the largest and most comprehensive sexual assault resource center in Washington State, and provide programming in English and Spanish. We provide medical and legal advocacy, counseling and support services to thousands of children, families and adults in our community. We work to empower women, children and men who have been sexually victimized and assist them in making the transition from victim to survivor and beyond.

KCSRAC’s purpose is to alleviate, as much as possible, the trauma of sexual assault for victims and their families. We give voice to victims, their families and community; We create change in beliefs, attitudes and behaviors about violence; We instill courage for people to speak out about sexual assault.

While KCSARC works to facilitate healing for survivors, we are committed to the elimination of sexual assault. We provide prevention education to schools, community organizations, businesses and neighborhoods. We believe that by providing people with the tools to identify and confront the conditions which support and perpetuate sexual violence, harassment and abuse.

With your support we can help end the silence surrounding sexual assault.

Warmest regards,

Mary Ellen Stone
Executive Director
