Los Angeles, CA (May 22, 2020) – PCL Construction builds
more than airports, hotels and sports facilities; we build communities by giving
back to our fellow Angelenos where we live, work and play. As the state of
California and city of Los Angeles prepare to re-open, PCL has a vested
interest in helping where possible and is providing face coverings to Council
District 8 and Council District 9 to be distributed to community members with
the greatest need.
“As a company founded on social responsibility, giving back
to our communities is the cornerstone of our organization,” said Aaron Yohnke, vice
president and district manager of PCL’s Los Angeles office. “As a 100 percent
employee-owned company, we give back to communities where we live and work.”
Face coverings are now required for all of those living in
Los Angeles County and are not always easily accessible to every household,
especially those physically and financially vulnerable. Council District 8 and
9 have been incredibly agile in their response to the ever-changing landscape by
providing meals for seniors, childcare and much more.
“It's critical that Council District 8 residents have access to
the personal protective equipment necessary to stay safe during these
challenging times. It is important for our community to look out for each
other,” said Marqueece Harris-Dawson, council member for Council District 8. “We
appreciate this donation of masks from PCL that will support our essential
workers and most vulnerable constituents.”
Over the years, PCL has built a strong relationship with
these council districts and small businesses in their community through numerous
projects including the recently-completed Banc of California Stadium and previous
work at LA LIVE.
“Being able to supply the face
coverings that were donated by PCL to local members of the community gives me a
sense a purpose that also brings me joy,” said Lila Don of SafetyVibe, the
supplier who provided the items for donation. “These face coverings provide a
peace of mind when having to go out in public and help them feel protected.”
PCL is a group of independent construction companies that carries
out work across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and in Australia.
These diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial, and
buildings markets are supported by a strategic presence in 31 major centers.
Together, these companies have an annual construction volume of more than $6
billion, making PCL one of the largest contracting organizations in North
America. Watch us build at PCL.com.
