Denver, CO (Nov. 27, 2019) – More than 30 million adults and children in the United States struggle with hunger and food insecurity. Since 2014, PCL has donated more than $500,000 to food banks across the country to help eliminate the uncertainty and worry that many experience due to the lack of food. In addition to monetary donations, PCL also supports the fight against hunger through food drives, turkey donations and volunteer shifts. 

“Volunteering isn’t just something instilled in the PCL culture, it’s something that each one of our employees values in their personal life,” said Deron Brown, president and COO of PCL’s U.S. Operations. “I know it’s a value that I’ve taught my own boys. Through volunteering together, we’ve created the best memories.”
