Donation in memory of son

Penticton's Discovery House has received over $30,000 in donations from Parkers Chrysler and Janet Parker, a result of a fundraiser in September and a personal donation from Janet in memory of her late son. 

“We are overwhelmed by the $30,900 donation. We had no idea it would be such a generous amount," said executive house director of Discovery House Jerome Abraham.

Parkers Chrysler raised $5,900 during the month of September, committing $100 for every vehicle sold to the charity, which provides addiction recovery support to men in the community. 

Janet Parker donated a personal cheque for $10,000 in memory of her son Colin Parker, and the dealership donated an additional $15,000. 

“We cannot bring Colin back but if we can help another mother and family avoid this tremendous loss, then we will do whatever we can. Organizations like Discovery House need the community’s full support to help those who suffer from addiction,” said Janet Parker, as she handed the cheque over to Abraham.

Parkers Chrysler general manager Jim Tabler said they are proud to be able to help the Discovery House in the midst of the ongoing opioid overdose epidemic. 

"Penticton is lucky to have Discovery House to help men get clean and sober so they can return to their families, and we will continue to help however we can," Tabler said.
