PCC is strongly committed to serving our community.
PCC Volunteer Program
PCC is committed to serving non-profit organizations in our community. PCC directly supports a number of organizations and has established an employee volunteer program. To further this commitment to community, every PCC employee is given paid time out of the office to volunteer with local causes of their choice. PCC volunteer activities include blood donation drives, charity fundraising event participation, organizing clothing drives, supporting the USO at the Milwaukee International Airport as well as serving on charitable event committees.
Dan Carney, Director of Sales at PCC was recently featured in the Biz Times 2017 Giving Guide. The BizTimes Media’s annual Giving Guide shines the spotlight on southeastern Wisconsin nonprofits doing invaluable work to better our communities in all kinds of ways. Carney, a volunteer at the USO Airport center, discusses the USO’s mission, his work with young recruits at the center and PCC’s support of the USO’s mission.
“Given all they do, I just want to make sure they understand that I, the company I work for, and a large portion of the private sector is truly appreciative of the commitment they are making and the role they are looking to fulfill in the military.”
Organizations we support.
