After building trusting relationships with its customers for the past 50 years, Groupe Park Avenue's management team wants to give back to the community. The company applies and fosters mutual aid as a corporate value.

We prioritize and give larger donations to local organizations that cater to health in general and to the well-being of children, such as:
