Formal Statement on PNWTS Charitable Giving Practices

PNWTS is committed to supporting our Vancouver Island community. This includes providing both pro-bono transportation services and donating a portion of our profits to organizations that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This year we are especially keen to support programs and organizations that are contributing to these SDGs as selected by our PNWTS team:

As you can imagine organizing transportation for a school trip, or a class field trip can be interesting and takes some time and often comes with challenges. I am so grateful for you and your team for working through those challenges with us and making two trips for our kids so special. The look of excitement and per glee that they had knowing they were getting to go on a “fancy” bus was all we needed. Most times when kids are asked what was the best part of your field trip they will say the bus and in this case it was absolutely the first thing they said. Of course our staff all appreciated the luxury of the coach as well.

We are so grateful for your support and from all of us here at James Bay Community School thank you!!
