Parker’s recently donated $6,500 to Bryan County Schools as part of the company’s Fueling the Community charitable initiative, which donates a portion of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools. The check presentation took place at Richmond Hill Primary School on May 17.
“We’re delighted to support Bryan County’s teachers and students through our Fueling the Community program,” said Parker’s founder and CEO Greg Parker. “At Parker’s, we believe it’s important to invest in the communities we serve, and there is no better way to do that than to support education right here in Bryan County.”
Parker’s launched the Fueling the Community charitable initiative in 2011 and donates money to schools in every community where the company operates stores. Parker’s has donated nearly $1 million to area schools since the inception of the Fueling the Community program and has donated more than $100,000 during the current school year.
