In the community
Year after year, PRC proudly supports numerous national and local charities. PRC’s employee-led committee, By Change Not Chance (BCNC), chooses a new charity each year. To encourage donations, the Millers donate 30 hours of time off. Employees who donate enter a raffle for that vacation time. PRC’s owners, Steve and Geoff Miller, will match those donations, 100%.
This year, the Durham Rescue Mission was chosen as our spotlight charity. They were chosen for their stellar reputation and focus on the needs of the community in which we live and serve. PRC’s BCNC committee serves in the DRM facilities on a monthly basis.
In the past we have also supported:
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives. In 2014, PRC adopted this charity and hosted a head-shaving event to raise funds and it remains the most talked about event to date!
SAFEchild is the only child abuse prevention agency in Wake County working directly with families. SAFEchild offers parent education and support services to families to prevent abuse and neglect, and changes the long-term effects of abuse if it has occurred. PRC’s owners, Steve and Geoff Miller, have supported this charity for many years and served on their board in years past.
Wounded Warrior Project

Durham County Department of Social Services
In fall 2014, PRC adopted a family and provided them with a Thanksgiving meal and a very generous gift card to assist them with their financial hardship.
In 1922, the Shriners dedicated themselves to providing expert medical care for children regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. The Shrine Center in Raleigh hosts an annual Circus to help raise support to fund their mission. PRC has proudly supported this charity for several years and donates their tickets purchased every year to employees and their families to enjoy a day at the circus.

The mission of the AAAA is to support the United States Army Aviation Soldier and Family by providing scholarships to Active and Retired U.S. Army Soldiers’ family members. PRC supports this charity every fall by participating and sponsoring a team in their annual golf tournament.
Lung Transplant Foundation
In June 2009, the national Lung Transplant Foundation (LTF) was founded as a non-profit organization by a group of lung transplant recipients from Durham and Chapel Hill, N.C. These recipients from Duke University and UNC Hospitals realized promotion and funding of research to improve the post-lung transplant experience and long-term outcomes was severely lacking, so they created the LTF to tackle one of the most difficult and life-threatening issues facing transplant recipients: chronic rejection or bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS). PRC has proudly supported this charity for years by sponsoring and participating in their annual golf tournament.
Baptist Children’s Home of NC
Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina is committed to providing the highest quality care to the children and families they serve. A variety of placement and prevention services are available to meet the needs of the individual child and/or family. PRC proudly supports this charity.
