Paramount supports families in the communities we serve
This year, we asked our Paramount family what we should do to support families in the greater Columbus area.
They decided that we should donate $500 each month to one non-profit group and selected three worthy organizations that had special meaning to them or have directly affected their lives.
They also wanted us to keep our customers and supporters involved in deciding which non-profit to support each month.
Tell us which of these organizations has touched you and your family, the group you pick will receive the $500 donation this month. We will ask for your help EVERY month, going forward.
The March of Dimes
The March of Dimes works to end premature birth and other problems that threaten our babies. We hope moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. If something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families. We research the reasons why babies are born too soon or very sick and work on preventions.
