Park City is world renowned for the lifestyle of its residents – all-in and all-out! We pride ourselves on being active, well informed, and active participants in making the world a better place for everyone. That’s why Parkites have declared March to be a whole month of giving generously to the 100+ non-profit organizations that do so much good work in our community. At Chin-MacQuoid-Fleming-Harris we donate our time and funds to many NPO’s, but we’d like to highlight a few of our favorites.
