Parker Tide Cares: Providing Support for The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys

Parker Tide is proud to announce its investment in the lives of children in our area. Tony Parker, President of Parker Tide, was a friend of Bishop John T. Walker and is currently on the school’s Board of Directors. The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys is a tuition-free Episcopal school for boys from traditionally underserved communities. The School nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, artistic and physical development of its students and welcomes boys of all faiths and beliefs. Working in close partnership with students and families, the School strives to create an environment where each boy is challenged to reach his full academic potential and receives support services which help to overcome barriers to achievement. Those services include before and after care, three nutritious meals a day, health and dental screenings, and summer learning opportunities. The School fosters a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, spiritual foundation, and moral character that each boy will need as a student and a citizen. The School strives to alter the educational and social trajectory of boys of color from neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River and prepare them for leadership and service in their communities and well beyond.

Parker Tide Cares:  Partnership with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital

Parker Tide is proud to announce its partnership with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital through a Community Outreach and Workplace Giving Program.  This program allows our employees to participate and help St. Jude in its mission to save the lives of children.

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made at St. Jude have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude hopes to be the world leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children.

Parents magazine named St. Jude as one of the top children’s cancer care hospitals in the U.S. for two consecutive surveys.  St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.
