Air2 Helps Kids Fly Higher

All PLH Group companies put the safety and welfare of their employees and the public above all else; to do so is an integral part of their corporate values.

Typically, for the 15 PLH business units engaged in energy infrastructure construction and maintenance, this means safety and welfare as directly related to electric power delivery systems or oil and gas pipelines.

Occasionally, though, it can mean something entirely different, as was the recent case with PLH Group’s Air2 business unit.

Air2 Superintendent Billy Depue lives in Brattleboro, Vermont, as does his fiancée, Lisa Coté, who works at Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub. Ninety Nine donates food, funds and team members’ time to the Boys & Girls Club of Brattleboro. When Coté asked Depue if Air2 could help out with a donation, Depue said he would ask.

“When Billy called me, I was in the parking lot of the DMV jumping around because I was so excited,” Coté said of the moment she learned Air2 would donate $1,000. “I can’t thank Air2 enough. This means so much for these kids!”

Boys & Girls Clubs of America defines its nearly 4,000 clubs in all 50 states as, “a safe place to learn and grow, all while having fun. It is a place where great futures are started each and every day.”

It isn’t hard to see how the Boys & Girls Clubs’ goal — to provide a safe, constructive haven for children who might otherwise be on their own after school — dovetails with the PLH Group goal of putting the safety and welfare of the public, which certainly includes children, above all else.

“We take pride in supporting our employees and their efforts to give back to our communities across the nation,” said Air2 President Sunita Khorana. “The Boys & Girls Club is a well-run nonprofit with years of success.”

In response to Air2’s donation, the Boys & Girls Club of Brattleboro created a thank you video from the children posted on YouTube.
