Pariveda Solutions’ combined effort over the years has improved the lives of many kids in the Dallas area by coaching them to succeed in life. At the recent ‘90s-themed Bowl For Kids' Sake event on August 9, 2014 at USA Bowl in Dallas, Pariveda was recognized for their participation and contributions to several Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) events and initiatives including Bowl for Kid’s Sake, School Supply Drive, Holiday Gift Drive, Mentor 2.0 and several matches of Bigs (volunteers) to Littles (children).
Pariveda’s combined contribution of $3,497 from their bowling teams “2 Legit 2 Split”, “Gutterly Ridiculous”, “Living on a Spare” and “Pin Ten Ten” added to the $31,000 BBBS collected that will provide 62 children with a Big Brother or Big Sister in Dallas County. Last year BBBS Lone Star was able to serve 1,856 total children with a caring mentor, all funded through the Bowl for Kids’ Sake event.
Adrian Thomas, a Manager in the Dallas office, noted "Bowl For Kids’ Sake is a great opportunity to raise money for BBBS. Pariveda does a great job of integrating community service in our culture, and our events with BBBS are a great way to give back to families in our local community."
Recently, Pariveda worked with their Dallas clients to donate over 200 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to BBBS for the upcoming school year. Over 100 Pariveda Dallas employees worked for two weeks to gather supplies for BBBS children going back to school. Pariveda is gearing up for BBBS’ 8th annual Holiday Gift Drive coming up this fall. Pariveda also participates in BBBS’ Mentor 2.0 Program each school year.
