Jacobs Donates $10,000 to Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation
Supporting a Common Culture of Caring

ALBERTA, CANADA – Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today that a group of employees from its Alberta operations has made a $10,000 donation to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The donation follows a significant safety milestone achieved by the Jacobs team of 230 people, who collectively provide maintenance, projects and turnaround services to client Dow Chemical Canada’s Fort Saskatchewan, Prentiss and AgroSciences sites. The team reached three years and more than two million hours of service without a recordable injury.

Rather than organizing and participating in a celebration, the team agreed to make a more memorable impact by donating the equivalent cost of the celebration to the community. After discussing options they decided on the worthy organization of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Stollery Children's Hospital provides programs and services to one of the largest health care regions in the world. Donations to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation help ensure the hospital continues to be a world leader in children's health care.

Commenting on the announcement, Jacobs Senior Vice President Lowell Wiles stated, “Jacobs and Stollery Children’s Hospital share a common commitment to the community. For our Dow Alberta Operations team, caring for each other has resulted in an exceptional safety record. And like Stollery, caring for their community is their contribution to making the world a better place. We are very proud of our achievement and are delighted to support such a wonderful organization in this way.”

Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation Senior Development Officer Lori Finck added, “This donation supports the Foundation’s dedication to excellence at the Stollery Children’s Hospital by helping us invest in the best people, programs and resources required for specialized pediatric health care. Jacobs’ generosity also ensures the Stollery Children’s Hospital remains at the forefront of advanced pediatric research, best-in-class training and cutting-edge medical technology.”

Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional and construction services.
