Denver, CO (December 22, 2014) – For the seventh year in a row, PCL Construction has donated over $1.1 million to benefit the Mile High United Way. In the two short weeks of their annual Mile High United Way campaign, 154 employees raised $554,850, and PCL matched employee contributions dollar for dollar.
“Mile High United Way is incredibly grateful and proud of the partnership we have with PCL Construction,” said Christine Benero, president and CEO of Mile High United Way, “They are setting the bar for corporate social responsibility in our city, and we simply could not change lives and transform communities without their leadership.”
To encourage participation and awareness, PCL hosted various events and activity fundraisers, including a root-beer float sale, wine cork pull, cooking competition, go-cart racing, and bowling. Donations made help Mile High United Way support local programs focused on school readiness, youth success, and adult self-sufficiency.
“PCL recognizes the extraordinary impact Mile High United Way has on the community in which it works,” said Shaun Yancey, PCL president and COO of US Operations. “We are honored to give back to an organization that gives so much, and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Mile High United Way.”
