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.
I had the privilege in assisting Parker's Purpose with some media relations in the local newspapers the last two years to help in promoting their message and their annual fund raising dinner and auction. I can honestly say that Parker, Parker's Purpose, and Todd Drusback have been a great inspiration and motivator for me and my family. It became vey evident that this foundation has the well being of those they serve and their families in their heart. Every interaction I have been involved in has been positive and I can honestly say, as an educator, that Parker, the foundation, and Todd have inspired me to become a better person, teacher, and member of my community.
I am thankful that I have been able to attend the Parker's Purpose benefit now several times. Meeting Parker and the Inks family has been amazing. They are very caring and giving people that are dedicated to helping other sick children and their families in our area. The benefit is always very well organized and the guest speakers are an inspiration. Looking forward to the next benefit to be able to do my part in helping others in need, while supporting this great organization.
I was introduced to Parker's Purpose by my employer, who gave us tickets to the attend the annual benefit auction. It was a very fun evening and the speaker that year was inspirational! The following year a young member of my family was diagnosed with LCH. I applied to Parker's Purpose and within hours received a call from them saying they would be more than happy to donate to my little great nephew to help with expenses from chemotherapy, etc. My view from both the giving and receiving side of Parker's Purpose is that it is an extermely helpful and caring organization, an origanization wih a postive attitude and outlook, and one that I am very grateful for. .
I have been fortunate enough to attend several of the fund raising efforts put on by Parker, Todd, and the Inks family. They've done a great job with their efforts to raise money to help many families in need. I am happy to write this review on behalf of Parker's Purpose and feel that their efforts and dedication to helping others should be rewarded with recognition of being a 2012 top-rated nonprofit. I am happy to donate to this great cause every year.... Doug Pearson
