PCL Construction says it will donate $100,000 over the next five years to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario to support pediatric oncology, mental health and the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre, which became part of CHEO late last year
Company representatives visited the hospital on May 11 to present the gift.
“All of our employees at PCL are proud of our support for the children and youth at CHEO. Giving back to the community we serve is vitally important, and we feel that the best way to do that is by investing in the health of our kids,” said Kevin Skinner, vice-president and district manager of PCL Construction. “We know that our donations to CHEO will make a difference in the lives of sick children, and we always hope they can do even more by inspiring others to help CHEO. In the end, it really is all about the kids and our desire to make sure they have the best health care available.”
Kevin Keohane, president and CEO of the CHEO Foundation, said: “PCL’s decision to provide funds to different areas will allow CHEO to address a number of immediate concerns such as oncology research, facilities and programs at OCTC and mental health resources. The fact that they hope to inspire others to give speaks volumes about their sense of community and we are very thankful for their ongoing support.
