DENVER, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - PCL Construction is donating $140,000 to
food assistance programs across the country to help with Thanksgiving
"There is a persistent and unfortunate demand for food across the
country and throughout the communities where PCL operates," said Shaun
Yancey, President and COO for PCL's US operations. "We recognize the
value of supporting food banks locally, and we are very pleased to give
back to the communities in which we build. That's why we continue to
support this vital cause."
In 2009, PCL Construction enacted its US Food Bank Initiative enabling
the company's 14 operating locations to donate $10,000 each year to
local food banks of their choice.
This year, PCL has contributed to food bank agencies in Atlanta,
Bakersfield, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis,
Orlando, Phoenix, Raleigh, San Diego, Seattle, and Tampa for a
collective donation of $140,000 nationwide.
PCL has given a total of $728,000 over the last five years to food banks
across the US, providing approximately 6.5 million meals to those in
need. In addition to monetary donations, several PCL employees have
also volunteered their time to assist with sorting and organizing
incoming food donations.
