A significant portion of our charitable budget goes towards our ongoing multi-year contributions, which are in areas where we feel we can make a meaningful difference in our communities. These include the Ducks Unlimited Chappell March project, the Meewasin River Landing, the Rick Hansen Institute, and the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. Other noteworthy contributions this year include Habitat for Humanity, the Ronald McDonald House Charity, the Canadian Red Cross, Recess Guardians and the Saskatoon Friendship Inn. We continue to support smaller local initiatives and welcome inquiries and requests for support, as we apply assistance and funds where we see that the PIC Group can provide the most benefit. In a world where the needs are so great, we have difficulty in choosing who we could and should support. Many credible, reputable organisations would benefit from our assistance therefore we must discern where our support for those in need is best allocated.
