Earlier this month, the nation watched as the Colorado wildfires spread through Waldo Canyon, temporarily displacing thousands of families and businesses—including PGi’s Colorado Springs office. Over the following weeks, PGi’s IT, Facilities, Customer Care and HR teams worked tirelessly to ensure that our employees were cared for and that our customers experienced uninterrupted service and support. Associates around the nation picked up extra hours to accommodate the demand, but PGi associates weren’t the only ones working through the night – hundreds of men and women from our national and local fire departments worked around the clock to serve on the frontlines of the fire, protecting our homes and businesses.
Overwhelmed by our associates and our firefighters’ hard work and team spirit, PGi wanted nothing more than to give back to the men and women who gave so much.
Last Friday PGi invited several firefighters from the Fountain Fire Department and their families along with 250 PGi families to the Colorado Springs Sky Sox game against the Tacoma Rainiers for an evening of fun, relaxation and baseball. “It was a great event and everyone there was really ready for a nice, relaxing night and we got it!” says PGi team member, Dana Campbell.
The game kicked off with an opening pitch from PGi’s own volunteer firefighter, Brendan McNab. “I always enjoy playing baseball and am grateful for the opportunity to throw out the opening pitch at the Sky Sox game!” said Brendan.PGi Associate & Volunteer Firefighter with Sox the Fox
The evening concluded with an inspiring fireworks display, the first since before the fire began. “This has been an awesome evening – beautiful weather, a packed stadium, fun PGi giveaways for the family and a win for the Sky Sox!” said Dana.
For all of our associates’ tireless efforts and the heroic men and women who worked to protect Colorado Springs, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
