PHOENIX — Parker and Sons announced its support of Special Olympics with the donation of five dollars for every paid repair or maintenance call. The Everybody Wins Program was implemented in celebration of Parker and Sons 40 years of service to the community.
“The Everybody Wins Program is our way of celebrating at Parker and Sons. We are grateful to the community for its loyal support throughout the years. The program is a way to give back to that community and the customers responsible for our success,” said Paul Kelly, president of Parker and Sons.
The Special Olympics started in 1962 as a summer camp for children with disabilities. It has grown immensely since then, providing year round training and competitions for more than 4.4 million athletes worldwide. Some of the events include Alpine skiing, aquatics, badminton, basketball, bocce, handball, judo, powerlift, and table tennis to name a few. Athletes of all skill levels are encouraged to participate; the primary focus is on community and fun.
“One aspect of the charity is to offer tribute to the consumer. Every time someone calls in a repair, we donate a little money on behalf of the customer, which in turn benefits the Special Olympics and Parker and Sons as well. That’s why the program is called everybody wins,” said Kelly.
