DENVER, COLORADO (March. 13, 2014) – The PCL family of companies have raised a company-record $7.18 million for United Way agencies across North America in 2013.

“The impact the United Way has on all the communities where PCL employees live and work is incredible,” said Shaun Yancey, PCL president and COO of PCL’s US Operations. “I am inspired year after year by how our PCL offices across the continent come together for this significant cause.”
Thirty PCL offices in US and Canada ran United Way fundraising campaigns, and several offices were recognized with local awards and recognitions. In Denver, Colorado, the PCL employee campaign topped $1.5 million and the offices were recognized as a Mile High United Way Cornerstone Society member— which recognizes companies that contribute over $1 million. PCL offices in Bakersfield, California, were recognized as an Outstanding Campaign Company by the United Way of Kern County. And in Tampa, Florida, the United Way nominated PCL Tampa to the Tampa Bay Business Journal as a Most Philanthropic Company, an award the office has received twice in the past.
PCL has partnered with United Way since 1969 participating in workplace giving campaigns that have raised millions of dollars for communities across the country,” said Jennifer Stokes, vice president of Donor Relations at Mile High United Way in Denver. “Locally, every dollar donated by employees is 100% matched by the company and, with leadership devoted to a culture of giving, PCL employees are better connected to their community and to each other.”
