Shoppers at Simon malls across the country who chose to valet park their vehicles this past holiday season helped put the charitable efforts of AmeriPark, a full-service parking company, in overdrive.
For the fourth consecutive year, AmeriPark teamed with mall owner Simon Property Group and mall retailers to promote the service and send a healthy portion of the proceeds to Simon Youth Foundation (SYF), an Indianapolis-based national nonprofit dedicated to helping at-risk students graduate from high school. AmeriPark boosted participation in the program by offering its customers coupons for complimentary valet parking on a subsequent mall visit and complimentary meal offerings from mall retailers.
“The entire AmeriPark team has embraced this program as an annual tradition that really benefits everyone from mall shoppers to students,” said Chip Patterson, AmeriPark CEO. “Our customers receive promotional perks, and we get to help create opportunities for kids who need to know that someone cares about them.”
“For the fourth year in a row, this innovative program has raised funds that will help hundreds of students, and we are truly grateful to AmeriPark for their support of our mission,” said Simon Youth Foundation President and CEO Michael Durnil. “Through collaboration with strong community partners like Chip Patterson and his team at AmeriPark we can help kids who are at-risk of dropping out become kids who are at-promise for bright futures.”
