Since its founding, the principles of corporate citizenship have been part of the company's core values. In fact, when the company was formed - their first action was to draft five key values that embodied the company. They are (1) customer service, (2) our people, (3) integrity, (4) our company, and (5) community.
An important part of corporate citizenship at PPC is the company's support and encouragement of its associates to be actively involved in the community. Associates and teams at locations nationwide participate in a number of community service and charitable activities throughout the year.
Each year, we donate to charitable causes. Whether it be food drives, Toys-for-Tots, and seasonal family sponsoring, we at PPC take pride to extend our time and resources to help out those less fortunate. In addition, we are engaged in programs that address the National STEM crises.
Guided by the recommendations of our employees, we have a long history of supporting worthy causes and organizations in the Washington Metropolitan Area, and Fairfax County in particular and programs such as DreamBuilders: STEAM in New Mexico. We’re now working to maximize our collective impact by focusing our support on local communities in crisis in four essential program areas:
- Environmental Stewardship
- Families in Need
- Health and Wellness
