History and Background of Parsons on Mission
For those of you who don’t know about Parsons on Mission, we’d like to share a little about how it came about and what we work every month to achieve. After attending a Bible study with a group of professional women, Parsons’ owner Cris Willis started thinking about how her business could be a ministry. Parsons initially began bringing in chaplins for their customers, employees, and anyone who might want to talk to someone outside of their church, or if someone wasn’t involved in a church. After Cris and her family had made some trips to Africa with Partners for Care, a group that supports Kenya nationals in building a better life for their people, the vision of what Parsons could do became very clear. Parsons hosted a Funds For Africa “yard sale” at the store where customers and community members could bring in their gently used handbags to be sold at yard sale prices. While the event was a hit in terms of raising money for Partners for Care, it was also the beginning of a monthly focus to bring awareness, financial support, and needed donations to various charities, causes, and local ministries in our area. Parsons on Mission has partnered with Buckets of Love (for victims of Hurricane Katrina), No Longer Bound (for recovering addicts in Cumming), Next Generation Focus (for teachers who tutor children free of charge), Rock Goodbye Angel (for families who’ve experienced pregnancy and early infant loss), Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together, and so many more.
