“The PWKP team remains committed to giving back and supporting the communities in which we work and live,” said Matt Girard, Project Executive for PWKP. “We are honored to contribute 220 turkeys to families across Pennsylvania who otherwise may not have been able to celebrate with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.”

“We were pleased to increase to our turkey donations this year and provide an opportunity for those less fortunate to start the holiday season with family and friends around the dinner table. From everyone who works on the Pennsylvania Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving” said Ed Dice, PWKP Project Delivery Manager.
