Community Giving

PCL believes in building strong communities by contributing time, talent, and resources to the localities in which employees live and work.

PCL - United Way
PCL - Red Cross 

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 50-year relationship with United Way is founded in a multitude of district-run campaigns and a corporate matching program. In 2018, PCL raised more than $6.9 million for 19 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 are together creating a lasting impact on the communities they call home.


PCL is proud to continue our 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 and relief at home and around the world. During our six-year partnership, PCL’s support to the Red Cross has gone to help those affected by numerous natural disasters, including floods, fires, and hurricanes.

Our commitment to Red Cross began in 2012 and will see $1.2 million donated to the Canadian and American Red Cross over 6 years to help fund disaster preparedness. In real terms, 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.
