Message from PACE Canada President

Dear Members, Supporters, Partners and Friends,

On behalf of the PACE Canada Board and Executives, I take this opportunity to wish all of our Adopt-A- School Sponsors, Patrons, Members, and Friends the very best wishes for the Christmas and Holiday Season. May you have a wonderful time with friends and family as we each celebrate in our own traditional ways.

Let us recall lovely memories of our very successful and first in-person Sunday Social event since 2019 attended by over 200 members, supporters and friends in November, along with the many virtual events we shared throughout the year. This year your Adopt-A-School donations ensured over 200 schools in Jamaica were able to provide educational and infrastructure updates that ensured a more effective environment for their students.

We are also excited to let you know that we plan to acquire additional OneTab computer devices in 2024 and hope you will join us through donations for providing these devices at your sponsored schools as more details are available.

This is the time of year to provide C$100 Gift Boxes to schools with educational items from our partner Sangsters’ Book Store in Jamaica. So please continue to support this program through donations for your sponsored schools.

We thank you all for your continued support of PACE Canada, as your support goes a long way to achieving our goal of Helping Young Children Succeed.

Diana Burke,
