COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY
PDC Energy puts a significant focus on our culture of volunteerism and the investment of time, effort and charitable dollars in the communities in which we live and work. Since 2012, we have hosted an organized effort for our employees and their families to participate in an annual full-day of volunteering called Energizing our Community Day (EOC).
Since 2012, PDC has hosted an annual organized effort for our employees and their families to participate in a full day of volunteering called Energizing our Community (EOC) Day. Being good neighbors, serving as responsible stewards of the land, and participating in local hands-on projects are ways to develop strong connections among our employees and our communities. Because each community has different needs, and our employees are passionate about many different organizations, EOC Day provides our employees the opportunity to contribute to the communities and organizations of their choosing by nominating qualified nonprofits and creating teams to achieve their volunteer projects.
In 2020, as a response to the COVID pandemic, EOC Day became EOC Days. Employees had a month to volunteer virtually and safely. Employees wrote thank you notes to doctors, nurses and first responders, picked up trash on their walks with their family, and donated food to local food banks.
Pecos, Texas is a small town with a large history and an even larger sense of pride. Pronounced PAY-cuss, the town is the home of the World’s First Rodeo, and the West of the Pecos Museum features everything from a complete 1896 saloon to exhibits honoring the early histories of Hispanics, African Americans, Native Americans and war veterans. We acquired assets in Pecos in late 2016 and we’ve spent the last several years growing our employee base and creating relationships in the town. Though we are just getting started, we’re proud to be a part of the Pecos community and look forward to fostering long-lasting partnerships.
In 2020, PDC supported over 93 organizations in four states through corporate contributions, matching employees’ personal contributions, team fundraising projects and volunteer hours.
PDC enabled 385 students to attend field trips and programming through sponsorship of the Children’s Museum of Denver.
