Saskatoon, SK (November 22, 2016) – For 5 years in a row PCL Construction Management Inc. (Saskatoon) has had 100% employee participation in its United Way campaign, including a quarter of the donations at or above the ‘Leader’ level ($1,200 or higher). This full participation resulted in a community donation of over $51,100 for the current campaign year.

PCL’s involvement with the United Way in Saskatoon doesn’t stop with an employee campaign. Members of PCL Saskatoon’s management team have served key volunteer functions. They include Ben Wagemakers, special projects manager who served as a United Way account executive, and district manager Aaron Yohnke who served as leadership chair on this year’s United Way campaign cabinet in Saskatoon.

Yohnke notes “Spending time on the UW campaign cabinet is both rewarding and energizing. Seeing firsthand the impact of campaign donations to enable possibility for Saskatoon and area’s most vulnerable citizens is very moving.” Speaking of this year’s employee campaign, Yohnke says, “The committee’s choice of events really brought the office together and promoted the 100% participation rate that we strive for.” PCL Saskatoon’s drive included a kickoff breakfast, a comedy night, painting the local Girl Guides’ activity room, and an employee silent auction bake sale (which Yohnke joked gets pretty competitive). Yohnke sums it up by saying: “Our campaign results are only possible because of our wonderful people who care greatly about helping others and building a stronger community in Saskatoon.”

PCL Saskatoon is a member of the PCL family of companies who raised more than $7.4 million for United Way agencies in communities across North America in 2015—the largest one-year fundraising total in PCL’s history.
