PCL’s Seattle buildings and civil groups donated $5,000 to Northwest Harvest Food Bank and another $5,000 to Food Lifeline to support those in need. This is the sixth consecutive year the Seattle office has donated to the two food banks for a total of $60,000.
“Thanks to PCL for joining us in the fight against hunger,” said Linda Nageotte, president and CEO of Food Lifeline, in a release. “We see the need for food continue to increase especially among children and seniors, our most vulnerable populations.”
According to Food Lifeline, one in six Washington households struggled with food insecurity at some point during the year, meaning food was uncertain or unable to meet the daily needs of household members.
The checks were presented to the food banks on Nov. 20.
In addition to the Seattle office, 13 other PCL offices across the nation are donating $130,000 to local food banks.
Over the last six years, the company has donated $868,000 nationally. That’s about 7.8 million meals.
Way to go PCL!
