More Than $6,000 Donated to Local Non-Profits

We hosted representatives from local mid-Missouri non-profit agencies on Thursday, February 2, to pass out some checks through Socket's Honest to Goodness Charity Donation Program.
This fourth round of donations totaled $6,171.85 in donations for 73 charitable organizations, bringing the total for the past two years to more than $18,000.
Through the program, customers of Socket's Home Phone + Internet bundles in Columbia and Jefferson City can designate a local charity to receive 5% of their bill for their first year of service. Donations are distributed twice per year.
We're so excited to see what these non-profit organizations can do for our community with these funds. Thanks to our customers for joining with us to give back to the community through this program!
