Parker’s Kitchen – a nationally acclaimed convenience store company and food service leader that was recently named a USA TODAY Top Workplace 2024 – made a $20,000 Fueling the Community donation to Bryan County Schools on April 24. Richmond Hill Primary School Principal Nancy Highsmith accepted the donation at Richmond Hill Primary School on behalf of local teachers and students.

“At Parker’s Kitchen, we believe that today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders,” said Parker’s Kitchen Outreach and Communications Manager Olivia Parker. “This Fueling the Community donation represents our company’s commitment to supporting student success and investing in the future of Bryan County.”

The Parker’s Fueling the Community charitable initiative donates a portion of the proceeds from gas sold at all Parker’s Kitchen locations on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools.
