3rd Annual Parker Serves
Friday, September 18, 2015

Join the Parker community in celebration of the 3rd Annual Parker Serves, an annual day of service. Parker Serves offers individuals committed to creating a culture of service the opportunity to donate their time and passion for service to deserving organizations around the world.

On Friday, September 18, Parker University will close its campus and send students, faculty, and staff out into our community to do good for others. Many of our students and employees plan to work with organizations focused on eliminating hunger throughout North Texas. Others plan to work with youth and animal assistance programs. In addition, we will provide chiropractic care to men and women in our community that may lack the resources and means to receive quality health care. We hope to inspire our alumni, friends, and colleagues to do the same, creating a culture of loving service worldwide. Commit to serving in your own community! Fill out the online form.
