Thank you – Annual Toy and Book Drive

Pathways for Children has once again completed our annual “Holiday Store” toy giveaway.   Our toy drive concluded with our annual Holiday Store on December 16th.  Every year, Pathways partners with over 35 local businesses and individuals to collect and distribute books, clothing and toys to families enrolled in Pathways’ programs.  Our toy drive is unique because donations stay in our community, meaning that neighbors really are supporting neighbors.

In 2016, our Holiday Store provided over 2,200 toys and gift cards, as well as and 400 books to 285 families 650 children from 14 communities on the North Shore.  We would like to thank all our community partners, donors, volunteers and most importantly, the families that are enrolled in Pathways’ programs.  Though the holidays can be challenging for many of us, we are always inspired by the enthusiasm and devotion of our Pathways families during this season.
