The Parsec Prize for the second quarter 2009 was recently awarded to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Western North Carolina. The organization has been serving Western North Carolina since 1982 and provides services to eight counties.
Parsec also made donations to the Boys Home of the South, Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, Asheville Community Theater, Caring for Children, and Special Olympics of North Carolina.
As mentioned in a previous newsletter article, Parsec matches a portion of employee donations. Last quarter, our employees supported a variety of non-profit organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the American Red Cross, Western North Carolina Rescue Mission, Helpmate, and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Unfortunately, charities are finding that their organizations’ needs are greater than the available funds. Maintaining our community outreach is important now more than ever. We encourage everyone to support charities whenever they can, through financial contributions and/or volunteer work.
