The July 16 attack hit home for PCL, as many of its employees live and work in the communities that surround Chattanooga. “As a company, we are very fortunate to have such caring employees who support the communities in which we live and work,” said John Moreno, president and general manager of PCL Industrial Construction Co. “Our employees recognized a need and took it upon themselves to help the families of the fallen servicemen. It makes me proud to be part of such a great organization.”
PCL Industrial, along with Riverside Transport and two Veterans of Foreign Wars posts, collected and donated nearly $120,000 that will be split evenly among the families of five military servicemen who died in the shooting attack in Chattanooga.
