PCL Construction is pleased to announce a $300,000 donation to the American Red Cross and Canadian Red Cross Disaster Management programs. The latest Red Cross donation is a continuation of the 2011 and 2014 agreements and will see $75,000 donated annually to each humanitarian agency over the next two years.
This renewed commitment comes during one of the most costly years for natural disaster recovery in the United States. Like many businesses and families in the areas impacted by the western US wildfires and Hurricane Harvey, PCL Construction and its employees were directly affected. Many PCL employees dedicated themselves to providing relief support during the
crisis, including by assisting their coworkers with rebuilding efforts.
The donation will provide financial support for the Red Cross Disaster Mangement program. This enables the organizations to better prepare communities throughout North America for crisis situations through a proactive investment in disaster-response operations, training for disaster-response personnel, and the establishing of critical disaster-response infrastructure.

This is PCL’s third proactive donation to the Red Cross, and will bring PCL’s total contributions to the American and Canadian Red Cross to $1.5 million since 2011.
PCL has a history of supporting the Red Cross’s disaster response efforts, having provided financial support to the Red Cross during a number of crisis situations that included Hurricane Katrina and the Haiti Earthquake. Since 2011, PCL has committed $1.5 million to the Red Cross’s Disaster Management program. This proactive approach saves money by supporting disaster response preparation, rather than reactively funding a specific disaster response operation.
