ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (December 22, 2015) – Looking to make an end-of-the-year gift this holiday season that is tax-deductible and benefits others? Then, consider making a donation to PARC.
“PARC depends on the contributions of individuals and corporations in the community to sustain its mission,” said Karen Higgins, PARC president and CEO.
PARC serves more than 800 adults and children with developmental disabilities helping them to exercise their independence and experience life to the fullest. Today, PARC offers more than 40 unique services and continues to be an advocate and a voice for individuals with developmental disabilities.
“For a donation of as little as $50, a PARC client receives one day of life enrichment services, so they can feel empowered to participate in our community,” added Jackie Dryden, PARC’s Chief Advancement Officer.
“Donations are tax deductible in the year they are made — by the end of Dec. 31 for 2015, for instance. If you put a contribution on a credit card by the end of the year and don’t pay the bill until 2016, it’s still deductible in 2015,” said Dryden. “The same goes for a check you write this year that is not cashed until next year.”
Donations will be accepted on PARC’s website at www.parc-fl.org, dropped off or mailed to the PARC office (3190 Tyrone Blvd. N in St. Petersburg, FL 33710), or by calling 727-341-6933.
PARC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities for children and adults with developmental disabilities to exercise their independence and experience life to the fullest. Established in 1953, PARC currently serves more than 800 individuals in the greater Tampa Bay area. To learn more about PARC, call 727-345-9111 or visit www.parc-fl.org.
