Annual Pathways for Children Toy Drive is underway!

Pathways for Children is excited to announce our annual Holiday Toy and Book Drive, and we are collecting through December 14th.

In 2016, our program partners with over 35 local businesses and distributes over 2,200 toys to families enrolled in Pathways’ programs, and there is always a need for more!  Our Toy and Book Drive is unique because donations stay in our communities, meaning that neighbors really are supporting neighbors.

To participate in this Toy and Book Drive, you may bring a new, unwrapped toy, art supplies, book, or gift cards to our Pathways offices at:

29 Emerson Ave. in Gloucester and 292 Cabot St. in Beverly.

You may also use this link to purchase a gift from our Amazon Holiday Wish List, which will automatically be shipped to our office:
