The PCL family of companies will donate $300,000 over the next three years to the American Red Cross in an effort to proactively invest in disaster response operations.
“PCL understands the importance of investing in infrastructure and training in advance,” said Gino Greco, CEO of the Red Cross of Colorado & Wyoming. “This type of support enables the Red Cross to build our resources, train our volunteers and prepare our communities so that we’re better prepared to respond when disaster strikes, and our communities are more resilient in the face of disasters.”
A majority of the donation will support proactive disaster relief efforts, enabling the nonprofit to procure supplies, train disaster response workers, and establish critical disaster response infrastructure before disasters strike.
“We understand just how devastating natural disasters can be and what the toll they can take on communities,” Shaun Yancey, president and chief operating officer of PCL’s US Operations says. “Through this partnership we’re able to help the American Red Cross better respond to disasters they see by providing food, shelter, and health services for millions of victims.”
This is the second time PCL Construction has partnered with the American Red Cross in the form of a multiyear $300,000 donation, the first being 2011 - 2014.
