PENTICTON - Due to the overwhelming response to last Winter’s fundraiser for Pathways Addiction Resource Centre, Parkers is continuing its commitment to the addiction challenges facing Penticton with the announcement of a full sponsorship partnership with Discovery House Recovery, operated by Penticton Resource Recovery Society.  

Several sponsorship and fundraising initiatives will occur throughout the year in support of the new facility at 633 Winnipeg Street. 

For the month of June, Parkers will be donating $100 for every vehicle sold and $10 for every oil change service during the month to Discovery House.  Later in the month, Parkers will be the title sponsor of Discovery House’s Family Fun Father’s Day Picnic. As with Pathways, the new partnership is in memory of Colin Parker, the late son of Parker’s owner Janet Parker, who passed away in early October.

"We are so excited to have Parkers Chrysler on board as an ongoing sponsorship partner for Discovery House” said Discovery House Executive House Director, Jerome Abraham. He continues, "Parker’s interest in helping others to find recovery and to receive the lifesaving and life changing support from Discovery House is a real game changer for us. We are looking forward to working with Parkers over the next few years to ensure that more men can get the much-needed tools for recovery and a better life”. 

“Support for recovery is necessary and is sorely missing in our community due to lack of funding. It is my hope that Parker’s leadership in this will encourage other local businesses to get involved as well” said Janet Parker. “Colin personally donated to Discovery House and it’s important to his memory that we continue helping however we can to return men to their families” she added.
