By Erica Giddings, Office Manager – PCD Engineering
PCD Engineering has developed and implemented an exciting, new Employer Sponsored Volunteer Program. We believe in standing up for and supporting our communities. That is why twice a year we have committed to gather as a company to serve those most in need in the Longmont and the Denver Metro Areas. We will be partnering with non-profits like Habitat for Humanity, Salud Family Health Centers, Denver Rescue Mission, and many others to serve where we are needed and support those who are carrying out this good work. Another reason why our staff considers PCD a great place to work.
We also recognize that there is more work to be done that is beyond what we can do. With this knowledge, PCD Engineering has committed to contributing financially by matching up to $200 in charitable donations per employee a year to a non-profit of their choice. This allows PCD and our employees to carry on our company’s principles throughout the year and offer aid and support even when we cannot do so in person. Some of the non-profits already donated to this year include Colorado Association of Black Professional Engineers and Scientists (CAPBES), Humane Society, Alzheimer’s Association, Denver Rescue Mission, and National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME).
As an above and beyond bonus to this program, we also have a Dollars-for-Doers program. With this in action, employees can cash in their own volunteer hours in exchange for an additional charitable contribution from PCD to a non-profit of their choice. This allows for the amazing work and support that our employees are doing to go even further.
We know that the work to be done in our communities is constant and we are only making a small dent, but our hope is that what we are able to do does make an impact for the better and does bring some relief. We are grateful that we can use the resources that we have to “pay it forward” and look forward to continuing this program in the coming years.
