PCL believes in building strong communities by contributing time, resources, and talents to the communities in which employees live and work.
PCL employees recognize that coworkers, neighbors,
and families all benefit from living in healthier, stronger communities, and
help to bring this about by providing financial support to United Way. United
Way supports local agencies that offer a variety of human service programs that
help make communities more secure and resilient.
PCL’s 48-year relationship with United Way is continued
today through office-run campaigns and a corporate matching program. In 2016,
PCL raised more than $6.6 million for United Way and member organizations
throughout North America. From donation challenges to fundraisers and silent
auctions, PCL employees across the organization have found ways to demonstrate
excellence in their commitment to community investment and together are creating
a lasting impact on the communities they call home.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Across North America, the PCL family of companies has donated more than $1.5 million over a four-year period to support Habitat for Humanity, an organization dedicated to building homes for deserving families. PCL employees can often be found volunteering their personal time at Habitat builds throughout the United States. PCL’s commitment to sustainability aligns with Habitat’s mission to promote positive change while demonstrating stewardship of people and natural resources, and bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
PCL is proud to continue the important
relationship with the Canadian and American Red Cross. Our financial support is
split between the two organizations and supports a number of programs and
initiatives that focus on health and safety training, humanitarian services,
and providing disaster preparedness for relief efforts at home and around the
PCL’s commitment to the Red Cross began
in 2012 and will result in $1.2 million donated to the Canadian and American
Red Cross organizations over six years. This proactive commitment will provide
financial support for emergent, life-saving Red Cross services—and will help
the organizations to better prepare communities for crisis situations.
