Parker’s recently donated $6,000 to Liberty 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 the Liberty County Pre-K Center in Hinesville, Ga. on May 15.
“It’s an honor to invest in the students and teachers in Liberty County,” said Parker’s founder and CEO Greg Parker. “At Parker’s, we believe education is not only a conduit of opportunity for students, but also the key to developing strong communities.”
Parker’s launched its 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.
