Parker's Purpose was created by a family who was blessed and chose to share that blessing with others. When a family is dealing with a child who is sick or has a medical condition, the last thing they should have to worry about is paying for medical expenses. Parker's Purpose provides financial relief to those struggling with such circumstances. I worked firsthand with Parker and his family for over 4 years. These people know the meaning of "Paying It Forward". Parker is an upbeat guy with a can-do attitude. His foundation emulates the goodness in him.
The Inks family Parker Purpose board of trustee's and the many volunteers do such wonderful things for other families in this part of the world with Parker's Purpose. They set an example that all people should follow. No matter how bad you think things are there is always help and love if you just ask for it.
Parker's Purpose is a great helpful organizaton to so many families with children with special needs. Parker is an inspiration to so many, showing his determination in not letting a disability stop him from doing whatever he believes in. The group of people that chair the foundation are very dedicated and put alot of time in working hard to make this a well run organization. When Parker got sick, Todd and Amy had a vision to help Parker and after that Parker wanted to help other kids - thus Parker's Purpose was started. A great great organization!
Parker Inks is an exceptional young man with incredible spirit - and it's no wonder amazing people like Todd Drusback and others rallied together to form Parker's Purpose - to provide assistance to families in need. Parker and his family face each day with special circumstances, but it is young Parker who was so touched by the generosity of the community and everyone who helped his family that he wanted to continue the mission to help other families. The Parker's Purpose events are ALWAYS top notch. In the spirit of Midwest values, the simple down-home atmosphere, terrific food, wonderfully engaging keynote speakers, Parker's warm smile welcoming you to the "family", the thrill of exciting auction activities, and the boundless generosity of the community serve as a refreshing reminder to all that we are a great nation of kind-hearted and giving people. Our family is proud to support Parker's Purpose and we thank Parker, Coach Drusback and the rest of the Parker's Purpose Foundation for being our real-world, every-day role models and heroes!
From the very beginning, this organization has been an inspiration for the philosophy of paying it forward. Parker, his family and everyone involved at Parker's Purpose realize that we are on this Earth to serve a greater purpose! I have had the privilege of being involved with Parker's Purpose from the beginning and continue to be amazed by the generosity of the human spirit. Parker and his purpose continue to positively impact other people's lives when they need it most.
Parker Inks is a wise young man...very mature far exceeding his years. Parker is very inspiring in his verbal communication and also in his actions. He is very giving...and his goal is to help other families struggling like his family did in 2008. We commend Parker, his parents, family, Todd & Amy Drusback and all the volunteers who successfully host this annual fundraising event...Parker's Purpose....it runs very smoothly and is always inspiring. Todd and Amy Drusback (Parker's teacher when Parker got sick) had a dream and a mission to help Parker and his family in 2008 and it has grown immensely since the first event to help many, many families struggling in NW Ohio. Parker does have a Purpose...and it's helping those in need. We support "Parker's Purpose" 100% and we always leave the event thanking God for allowing us to be a small, small part of this wonderful fundraiser.
I have been around Parker and the Parker's Purpose foundation for the last 3 years and it is a great foundation that helps a lot of needed families in the area. I look forward every year to the Parker's Purpose Banquet and love seeing Parker on a weekly basis during football season. What a inspiration he is to our football players, school and the community!
Parker's Purpose started to help one young man and has grown to help many other children and families. The impact on the families, community and youth is tremendous as it has increased awareness of families with medical needs, it has increased involvement and participation in fundraising and it has increased hope in the effort to provide a quality life to those who are in need. The food, donated items, quest speakers and spirit of the event are first class and one of the best fundraisers I have ever attended.
Great organization and well run by the committee. Helped a lot of families through some tough times. The Inks family and Foundation are to be commended!!!
