COMMUNITY

Parks Commitment to You...
 
John & Saretta Culver decided in their first year of operating Parks Motors that they wanted to be dedicated to giving back to the communities that they serve and set aside a percentage of profits each year to do just that.  The death of their oldest son, John Culver, Jr., strengthened that commitment to giving and was the catalyst for the formation of a separate trust fund set aside for charitable events and non-profit organizations.  Donations each year by the Culver's and Parks Motors and Parks Chevrolet, generally are in the form of vehicles to be used by organizations as an additional fund-raising tool.






Parks Motors & Chrysler Financial Donate 2nd Truck to Nature Conservancy Org.

In May, 2008, Parks Motors and Chrysler Financial donated a 2-yr. lease on a new 2008 Dodge Ram quad cab/4-wheel drive truck  to the Kansas chapter of the Nature Conservancy organization.  (The first one was donated in 2006 to the Kansas Chapter's Flint Hills Initiative Program).   The truck will be used for the Conservancy's avian monitoring program, which records and monitors bird species all over the state.

"I believe the Nature Conservancy is one of the most effective conservation organizations to give resources to protect our environment.  Their commitment to conservation and building partnerships shows that people working together can protect regions like the Flint Hills," said John Culver.
