EDMONTON, Alberta (Feb. 22, 2019) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce a $6.9 million donation to United Ways across North America from its overall 2018 campaign. Twenty-eight PCL districts held fundraising campaigns to support their local United Way agencies.
“2018 was a very special year for our campaign as it marked the 50th year PCL has supported United Way,” said Dave Filipchuk, PCL president and CEO. “PCL employees continue to do what it takes to make their communities better places to live and work across North America. Partnering with United Way allows us to make an important impact by helping those who need it most.”
The $6.9 million in fundraising will help United Way agencies and the individuals who draw on their services. These funds will go toward various partnerships, programs, and services in three main areas that United Way supports: improvements in education, income, and wellness address the overall well-being of children through to adults, from schooling and hot-lunch programs to employment services and health care.
PCL’s efforts during the campaign included everything from holding raffles to pie-in-the-face contests, carnivals, and various other office competitions to help raise more donations. Get more information on PCL’s community giving.
