South Burlington, VT – The employee-owners of PC Construction prioritized hunger-fighting organizations in their 2020 corporate giving to help combat food insecurity across Vermont, totaling well over $90,000 in donations since March. According to a recent news report, Before COVID-19 arrived, one of every 10 Vermonters struggled with food insecurity. Now one in every four residents in the state struggles to obtain adequate nutrition.
Over the course of the year, PC donated $10,000 each to the Vermont Foodbank, the South Burlington Food Shelf, and Feeding Chittenden, and the company was a sponsor of Spectrum Youth and Family Services’ annual Empty Bowl Dinner in October. The construction company also collected close to $25,000 from its employee-owners for its 55th annual United Way campaign this fall, and doubled that total with a 100% corporate match.
“We are very concerned about the impact the pandemic is having in our communities, especially related to food supply for our most vulnerable families around the state,” said Jay Fayette, President & CEO of PC Construction. “Supporting our neighbors and doing our part to make sure the basic necessities are met has always been a priority at PC. Food security is still a huge problem and with Thanksgiving quickly approaching, now is the time for Vermonters and local businesses to rally to make sure everyone has food on the table.”
