Corporate Citizenship

Supporting our communities through giving is important at Parmenter. It is our goal as a company to foster and encourage an environment where our employees can take initiatives that benefit our communities, and we have been involved in various community programs throughout the years.

Strong, healthy, safe communities

In order to build the strong, healthy and safe communities, our employees work closely with various non-profit organizations whose goals and objectives are aligned with ours. We have strong track record of building successful long-term relationships, and we are always encouraging and supporting our employees who participate in local community events.

A great place to work

Our success as a company is due to the dedication of our employees who are focused on every aspect of our business. We are devoted to helping our employees live well and achieve their goals, knowing that their diverse perspectives, talents and commitments is what makes both our company and our communities the best they can be.

Over The Edge Partnership

Parmenter has an ongoing partnership with Over the Edge, a non-profit special events company that provides signature rappelling events for organizations throughout the world, including the United States, Canada, Central America, Europe and Australia. Local participants are invited to raise pledges for a nonprofit, in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of rappelling over the edge of one of our buildings.

Parmenter has hosted 15 rappelling events since 2009, and raised over $1.6 million for the Special Olympics and other charities in different states. Our partnership with Over the Edge has given us a unique and innovative way to use of our buildings for a worthy cause.
