Ukraine Relief Efforts
PCPC and our member companies stand united with the international community to support the Ukrainian people, who deserve to live and work in peace. Many of our companies are funding relief efforts in Ukraine by donating to NGOs on the ground, supporting U.S.-based and international organizations focused on helping refugees displaced by the violence, and donating essential care and hygiene supplies. As a global industry, we urge a swift end to this conflict and continue to keep our employees and communities throughout the world in our thoughts.
In addition to working with local partners and organizations, industry efforts have supported the organizations listed below. To learn more about these organizations and how you or your company can help, please click on the links. PCPC will continue to monitor and communicate important updates.
