But respecting another person is much more about who WE are than about who the other person is. ~PISI

|501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Charity
United States Army Veteran T.R. Parnell discerned the call to develop a multipurpose nonprofit public charity called Parnell Intermediary
Services, Inc. (PISI). December 10, 2003 PISI was incorporated in Texas. On May 14, 2004, PISI received its recognition as a 501(c)(3)
Nonprofit Public Charity by the Internal Revenue Service. The community responded generously and we are realizing the blessings and
challenges of growing. We have conducted our own programs of education, outreach, and advocacy; published reports from the field of
community-based social service projects; and also funded the work of other nonprofit organizations and public institutions selected by our
Board of Directors.
A promise conveys a bond, a sincere agreement that goes far beyond idle words. Promises fulfilled solidify future relationships, and give
reason for trust. We have been fulfilling the promise to those who place trust in us. This is a trust we take very seriously as we keep
allegiance not only with our history and those who have gone before, but as we thoughtfully plan for tomorrow. Certainly, we have grown
in terms of breadth and depth. We serve all economic backgrounds by eliminating the financial barrier to seeking assistance and this is
done through a sliding scale fee that is relative to a family's combined income. We are committed to helping People and Animals in need
of aid. Together we can change the lives of the abused, battered, homeless, hungry, ill and less fortunate.
There are a host of reasons to donate to PISI. For instance, if you donate to PISI you may gain certain tax benefits. If you donate, you will be able to
help others and you may get a tax deduction for your charitable contribution. Another great reason to donate is to reduce clutter. A decision to donate
to PISI does not necessarily mean a cash donation. You can donate by giving items as well. Are there things taking up space in your home/business
that you could donate to PISI? A decision to donate can reduce the clutter in your home/business and leave you with that good feeling that
accompanies every decision to donate. Of course one of the greatest reasons to donate to PISI is to help the less fortunate. If you have been
blessed, making a decision to donate can help you give a little back. Have you had times in your life when you needed a little help from PISI? Now that
you are on your feet, why not make PISI the beneficiary of your decision to donate to charity? It is never a bad idea to return goodwill and if your
decision to donate to PISI helps someone who once helped you it just makes it that much more appropriate. Finally, determine the cause that means
the most to you when making your decision to donate. If you are going to donate to PISI, it only makes sense to choose one or several of our Family
Services and Outreach Programs that matters to you.
Donations that the Donor has designated to be sold by PISI are value priced and made available for sale in our eBay store. PISI welcomes donations
of unrestricted monetary contributions, pet supplies, usable clothing, appliances, household items, tickets, furniture, vehicles, books, real estate,
office space, tools, electronics, and more.
The flag of the United States of America contains thirteen alternating horizontal stripes of equal width, of which seven are red in color and six are white. In the upper-left corner is a blue rectangle, on which are drawn fifty white
five-pointed stars. Since 1777 when it was first adopted officially, the US flag has undergone several revisions to reach its current design.
Meaning of Colors
Although the flag was adopted officially in 1777, at that time there was no meaning attached to the colors. However, the same colors were used in designing the Seal of the United States of America in 1782, having specific
meaning. In the words of Charles Thompson, secretary to the Continental Congress: "The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and
innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice".
History of the American Flag
For over 200 years now, the American flag symbolizes the unity and strength of the country. In other words, one can also say that it is a source of inspiration and pride for the citizens. The USA flag has turned out to be a viable
icon in the history of the nation. As of now, the USA flag comprises 13 horizontal stripes, where seven red stripes and six white stripes are arranged horizontally. The stripes that you find in the American flag symbolize the
thirteen colonies and the stars symbolize the fifty Union States. Besides, the red and the white colors that have been used in the flag have their own significance. For instance, the red color represents valor and hardiness
while the white color stands for innocence and purity. Last, but not the least, the blue color symbolizes justice, insistence, and alertness.
The American flag is a symbol of national unity and pride for the country. The fifty stars represent the fifty states comprising the present-day United States of America. For the symbolism of colors, see the corresponding
The etiquette governing the use of the US flag are given in the Flag Code of the Federal law. Although the code is not binding on the common citizen, the following guidelines are prescribed:
•Unless the flag has been so designed, it should be flown only in good weather.
•The flag must be well lit at all times, either by sunlight or artificial light sources.
•When displayed in a group of flags, the USA flag must be at the center and at the highest point.
•If the USA flag is being displayed with another flag, with the two flags having crossed staffs, the USA flag must be on the right and have its staff in the front.
•If the flag is to be suspended overhead, the canton must be to the top towards the left of the observer, with the folds falling freely.
•The flag should not be used as an item of decoration or in any form of fashion.
If the USA flag has become worn out, it should be mended properly. In case the state of the flag is beyond repair, it should be disposed in a respectful manner.

Our Volunteers also known as PISI Integrity Team help fulfill our promise to People and Animals. If you've ever spent ten minutes reading a book to a lonely child, you know that even that small
amount of compassion and attention can make a world of difference. No one person can solve all the world's problems, but what little you do can make your little corner of the world; or one far
away from yours a happier, healthier, safer place to live for those who need your help. Each of us can right a wrong, fill a plate, visit a shelter or clean up a park; and that does make a difference
for us all!
