June 11, 2012
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah Staker Parson Companies joined with other local Oldcastle companies to beautify the grounds at The Christmas Box House in Salt Lake City on May 31. In celebration of Staker Parson’s 60th anniversary, the company rallied a group of 60 employees to conduct the service which included weeding flower beds, placing weed barrier, spreading new gravel and mulch and planting flowers.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate 60 years of business than serving a well-deserving nonprofit charity in our community,” said Scott Parson, Staker Parson president and CEO. “Volunteering and serving in our community demonstrate the values we have as a company.”
The Christmas Box International, a nonprofit transitional facility for children who have been removed from situations of abuse or neglect, seeks to improve the quality of life for hundreds of children each year. With a staff of just four full-time employees, they rely largely on volunteers and private donations for funds to provide services to children and teens in need.
Sherri Engar, assistant director for The Christmas Box House, expressed the organization’s sincere appreciation for the service. “It was such a pleasure to see your incredible staff providing such selfless service. We were completely blown away by your generosity! It was unbelievable,” said Engar. “I can’t even find words to let you know how much we appreciate your goodness. Basically, you transformed our little world at The Christmas Box House! Thank you for helping us to provide hope, beauty and security for the little people we serve. You couldn’t have served a more deserving population.”
