We at Parkway believe it is important to not only perform our duties with excellence, but to also develop a corporate conscience and soul, an attitude of service and generosity to others. As employees, we volunteer at and give to local and national non-profit organizations whose mission is to help others.
Corporately and personally our employees regularly volunteer for Meals on Wheels, Boy Scouts of America and various other organizations, including: Camp Courage, a local camp for grieving children; the John Thomas Foundation, a provider of specialty medical equipment for children with special needs; and the Cancer Services Network, a local non-profit supporting under-served cancer patients with related medical expenses. Read more about these great local organizations below.
Joseph was a special boy. He needed constant medical care, like most kids with special needs. We know firsthand the pressures this puts on the family, spiritually, emotionally and financially. The foundation was started to help families who need medical equipment, supplies and other medical needs. We feel we can use our knowledge as an outreach and help other families in need.

Camp Courage is a week-long camp for children who have suffered similar losses of a loved one through death, divorce, separation, incarceration or deployment. Children participate in recreational activities that promote self-esteem, encourage self-healing, and provide an outlet for unexpressed emotions. In addition, with the help of specially trained counselors, campers develop healthy coping skills as a result of the variety of grief exercises offered, which ultimately help build self confidence, trust, and an understanding of the grief process. Children, ages five through 18, who are grieving are encouraged to participate. Click here to learn more.
