Our Point-of-Sale Container Program provides a large part of our funding. We use a very small un-imposing, safe and attractive clear plastic container - only 3" in diamter and less than 5" tall. Each container is individually numbered and sealed.
We bring the container(s) to you, place them where you want them, monitor them weekly, and remove them, or swap them out, at your direction. Our members who collect the containers carry permanent identification for your assurance.
Each full container is documented and returned to our office, where the seal is broken and the contents are counted and recorded, all by the same staff person. You can be assured that all donations are utilized in pursuit of our organizational goals.
P.A.W.S. is and all VOLUNTEER - 501 (c) (3) - organization. We have NO paid staff. We pay no salaries of any kind. After very meager operating expenses, more than 98% of all contributions are used to accomplish our program goals.
