PHOENIX, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Special Olympics started as a summer camp for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. But, the camp exploded into one of the largest charity events in the world. Indeed, the Special Olympics supports over 4.4 million athletes, and empowers the countless number of people who struggle directly or indirectly with an intellectual disability. Some of the events include: table tennis, snow skiing, powerlifting, bocce, basketball, archery, track and field, swimming, diving, gymnastics, ribbon dancing, and skeet shooting. The Special Olympics also biannually hosts the world games. This year they take place in LA.
Parker and Sons, Arizona's number one service provider (rated by Ranking Arizona), supports the Special Olympics every year. Last year, in 2014, Parker & Sons donated over $400k to the Special Olympics. This year they hope to surpass that.
"Every year, it brings us great joy to contribute to The Special Olympics. We also donate our time, and the joy on the athlete's faces is priceless," said Josh Kelly, partner at Parker and Sons.
It seems natural that Parker & Sons would team up with the Special Olympics. Both are highly respected in the community, and both have humble beginnings. Much like the genesis of the Special Olympics, the beginning of Parker & Sons has humble roots. Parker & Sons began as a garage and van operation, headed by legendary Grandpa Parker, the originator of the customer satisfaction guarantee. Since then, Parker & Sons has become one of the largest most respected service providers in the Sun's valley. Their commitment to customer care, the rigorous certification process required by Parker & Sons technicians, and the legacy they've created distinguishes Parker & Sons from the competition. Indeed, Parker & Sons is Arizona's plumbing and HVAC providers.
