J&P Cycles’ Employees Take Pie In The Face for Local Charities

Over the years J&P Cycles has created strong ties to the communities we serve. Our employees take great pride in raising money and giving back to those in need. For the holidays, we decided to get creative and add additional incentive for employee donations. For a $1 donation, employees of J&P bought a chance for the opportunity to toss a pie in the face of the manager, supervisor or team lead of their choice. The more chances

employees bought, the better their odds were of having their name drawn. Additionally, J&P staffers were able to purchase 6 tickets for $5 or donate $25, which guaranteed throwing a pie in the face of that person’s chosen target.

On Dec. 22, 30 lucky J&P supervisors were “chosen” to receive a “pie” (whipped topping) in their kisser. Even J&P Cycles President John Parham, Vice President Jill Parham and Director of Operations Zach Parham joined in on the fun. In total, more than $630 was raised. Additionally, employees at the J&P Cycles® Superstore in Ormond Beach, Fl. raised $231 through the same contest for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

“Throughout the year, J&P Cycles holds various fund-raisers. We decided to change this one up a bit this year, and what a hit it was. Raising more than $630 is fantastic, and it feels wonderful knowing that so many local children will be smiling on Christmas, thanks to the generosity of our employees,” said Jill Parham.
