Denver – US Head Office

$1.5 million committed to humanitarian agency since 2011

Denver, CO (October 4, 2017) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce a $300,000 donation to the American Red Cross and Canadian Red Cross Disaster Management programs. The latest Red Cross donation is a continuation of the 2011 and 2014 agreements and will see $75,000 donated annually to each humanitarian agency over the next two years.
 

This renewed commitment comes during one of the most costly years for natural disaster recovery in the United States. Like many businesses and families in the areas impacted by the western US wildfires and Hurricane Harvey, PCL Construction and its employees were directly affected. Many PCL employees dedicated themselves to providing relief support during the crisis, including by assisting their coworkers with rebuilding efforts.         

“Recent news of wildfires, Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma are reminders that disaster can suddenly leave many North Americans without basic necessities,” said Dave Filipchuk, president and CEO, PCL Construction. “As a company, we are committed to supporting the communities in which PCL employees live and work. Our donations to the Disaster Management program allow the Red Cross to proactively manage funds and immediately deploy resources where they are needed most, as soon as disaster strikes.”

The donation will provide financial support for the Red Cross Disaster Management program. This enables the organizations to better prepare communities throughout North America for crisis situations through a proactive investment in disaster-response operations, training for disaster-response personnel, and the establishing of critical disaster-response infrastructure.

This is PCL’s third proactive donation to the Red Cross, and will bring PCL’s total contributions to the American and Canadian Red Cross to $1.5 million since 2011.
