Commitment to Community Service
At Parson + Associates (P+A), we are fully dedicated to making Kansas City the best metro area in the Midwest. We proudly commit to community service projects that, as a veteran-owned business, are very dear to our hearts.
The Project MRE Story
For soldiers serving in the field, away from the comforts of home, the MRE (meal, ready-to-eat) is a self-contained meal that provides the nutrition a soldier-on-the-go needs to sustain him or herself. As a disabled veteran who served in the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, Jason Parson remembers well how vital it was to have those MREs, and more importantly, how much his fellow soldiers have given and continue to give to their country.
The Project MRE Veterans Dinner is the result of Jason’s vision and deep desire to honor our area veterans through community service. During its inaugural year, Project MRE served 160 veterans and their families a delicious home-cooked meal from the local Peachtree Restaurant. An additional 80 meals were delivered to homebound veterans and their families. At P+A, we look forward to increasing the number of veterans honored and served at the event each year.
Please contact us if you would like information about supporting the Project MRE Veterans Dinner through a corporate sponsorship, in-kind donation, personal donation, or volunteer support.
