Thank you for making 2016 a great year at Pathways for Children!

Individuals, organizations and businesses in the communities we serve have supported Pathways in many different ways last year. From toy and book drives, to fundraisers, to volunteering and classroom enrichment activities, we are so grateful for each and every one of you. Your belief in the work we do to inspire children and strengthen families makes it possible for us to provide the highest-quality programs possible.
Holiday Store - Toy and Book Drive
We would like to thank all our community partners, donors, and volunteers for their incredible support our annual toy and book drive!

This year, our Holiday Store provided over 2,200 toys and gift cards, and over 400 books to 650 children from 14 communities on Cape Ann and the North Shore.

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.

Snow Ball Success!
The spirit of giving was certainly in the air on December 9th as more than 260 Pathways' supporters gathered at The Beauport Hotel to support children and families.  Together we raised over $225,000!

With the help of Senator Bruce Tarr, Bill Hausman and Pathways' own "Playground Experts" we surpassed our goal of raising $150,000 to rebuild 2 playgrounds at our Emerson Ave site in Gloucester.
