HSN Cares donates $400,000 to agencies

HSN Cares, the charitable organization of the Home Shopping Network, on Wednesday donated $400,000 to Tampa Bay area agencies.

The money will pay for a technology lab at the middle school, sponsor a room at CASA's new domestic violencer shelter, build homes for needy families and fund college scholarships for children in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Another $100,000 will be given to local charities where HSN has distribution centers: Piney Flats, Tenn., Roanoke, Va., and Fontana, Calif. The money was donated to HSN Cares by Alliance Data, HSN's credit card partner.
