Socket presents check to local Honor Flight

Columbia, MO. - Representatives from the Central Missouri Honor Flight organization recently visited Socket, a locally based Internet and telecom company, to pick up a check for $500.

The donation was the result of a Socket month-long informational campaign. Each time a company asked for a price quote for its telecom services, Socket delivered the quote to the business and then donated $50 to the Central Missouri Honor Flight organization. Several of the many veterans who work at Socket were on hand to present the donation to representatives of the Honor Flight.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to help send men and women who served our country to Washington, D.C. where they can see the memorials built in their honor,” said Carson Coffman, President and Co-Owner at Socket. “We’re even more excited to report that we expect to have a second, much larger donation coming very soon.”

Throughout the month of March, Socket will donate $100 to Central Missouri Honor Flight for any resident who signs up for a free 3-month trial of high-speed fiber Internet. This offer is available in parts of Callaway and Boone Counties. To find out if fiber is available to your home, call 1-800-SOCKET-3  or visit
