Fueling the Community
Parker’s president, Greg Parker understands that education is the rising tide that lifts all ships. It’s the key to future success and the smartest investment in a community.
That’s why we proudly donate one cent from every gallon of gas purchased at all of our convenience stores on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools through our Fueling the Community program. This charitable initiative officially launched in the fall of 2011 and distributes over $100,000 per year to public and private schools throughout Georgia and South Carolina. As a locally owned and operated company, we recognize the importance of giving back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work. This would greatly help your school, Guyton Elementary!!
Parker’s customers can sign up for a PumpPal card online to select Guyton Elementary for their one cent per gallon donation. Existing PumpPal members can access their account online and select your preferred school here.
Education and health are imperative to a community, and we’re proud to regularly contribute to both. Remember to fuel up at Parker’s on the first Wednesday of each month to help us keep giving back to area schools and medical centers!
