On June 21st, Purolator International participated across the country in the annual United Way Day of Action. Making a difference on a company level and regionally is an important part of the Purolator International culture. The employees strive to give back locally to the communities where they work and live. Several branches across the country participated in this Purolator Gives Back (PGB) event.
