financial accountability

Donations and contributions to Precious Packs are important to us because they assist us in providing better educational opportunity to students within the Southwestern Ontario region. Our hope is that with the support of our donors, sponsors, and community, we will continue to grow Precious Packs, enabling us to expand our reach to students and schools. 

As we are a non-profit organization, all donations are used directly for the purchase of backpacks and school supplies that are listed on our website.
