Our Partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
PGC is honored to continue our partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our team has had many amazing opportunities to do our part in supporting their life-saving mission and raising awareness for childhood cancer.
This fall, PGC employees held a Penny War fundraising challenge. Not only was it rewarding to raise money for a great cause, but members of our Executive Team also sweetened the deal by taking a pie to the face once we reached our goal. We were lucky to be joined by members of the St. Jude team to celebrate the achievement!
This September, St. Jude hosted a Walk/Run event in the Twin Cities. PGC was proud to be a local sponsor and hosted the “Healing Through Art” booth that provided animated coloring projects for kids at the event to enjoy! The booth also showcased beautiful paintings made by St. Jude patients. It was an amazing day filled with music, food, games, and so much more!
We would like to thank St. Jude for their continued partnership and all the great work they do! We look forward to more exciting ways to support their work!
Workplace Safety at PGC
The manufacturing industry requires workers to engage in high-risk activities such as cutting, assembly, machine maintenance, heavy lifting, and more. These tasks are vital to the workflow process on the manufacturing floor, but all can pose a potential safety risk. It is imperative that companies take every possible step to mitigate the risk of potential injury to employees.
