Edmonton – North American Headquarters

Edmonton, Alberta (October 4, 2018) – PCL Construction’s Edmonton campus location is proud to share the total funds raised in it’s recent United Way of the Alberta Capital Region fundraising campaign. This year’s campaign theme was 50 Years United as PCL celebrated half a century partnership with the United Way.

PCL employees raised $2,354,514 through  a number of different events, personal donations, and corporate matching over the three-week campaign. A first-time pie-in-the-face fundraiser, a ping pong ball drop, an online auction, and a Be-Seen-In-Jeans week all helped get employees involved.

PCL’s 2018 United Way campaign chair, Brent Sharpe, says “We really wanted to celebrate our milestone partnership with the United Way. United Way plays a large part in PCL’s vision to give back to the communities in which we live and work for the past 50 years. Our PCL family always comes together to donate time and money, and make a difference for our community’s less fortunate. PCL continues to be the biggest donor to the Edmonton-Area United Way campaign, giving close to 10% of the Edmonton-Area United Way’s total donation dollars each year.”

United Way donations in the Alberta Capital Region help deliver over one hundred programs that lift people out of poverty and prevent those at risk of falling into it.
