Parker’s recently donated $2,500 to Tattnall 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 South Tattnall Middle School in Glennville, Ga. on May 17.
“At Parker’s, we believe it’s important to invest in education, since it’s the rising tide that lifts all ships” said Parker’s founder and CEO Greg Parker. “I’m originally from Tattnall County, so I’m deeply honored to support local teachers, students and future leaders through our Fueling the Community program.”
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.
Deeply engaged with the communities it serves, Parker’s endows the Parker’s Emergency and Trauma Center at Memorial Hospital in Savannah and spearheads the Keep Savannah Clean anti-litter campaign. In 2018, Parker’s also donated a record $5 million to create the Parker College of Business at Georgia Southern University.
Founded in 1976, Parker’s has earned accolades for its Parker’s Rewards loyalty program, award-winning Fueling the Community charitable initiative, innovative mobile app and acclaimed PumpPal program, which has saved customers more than $10 million since its inception.
