RIDLEY TOWNSHIP — Volunteers gathered at the office of Pathways PA on Saturday to wrap gifts for needy families as part of the organization’s Adopt-A-Family holiday program.
“The goal of the program is to have our families — clients in our programs — adopted so they have a Christmas for themselves and their children,” said Fran Franchi, director of development at Pathways PA.
Pathways, headquartered in Holmes, Ridley Township, has offices throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and provides advocacy services on behalf of low-wage workers statewide, in addition to programs committed to the development of client self-sufficiency.
About 154 donors, including individuals and corporations, adopted 314 families this year through the program, according to Franchi.Bull Market Toys brought a donation of 200 toys to PathWays PA on Saturday, and PECO adopted 37 families this year.
Thanks to everyone who donated even one toy, one dollar, or one gift to a family in need this holiday season! If you would still like to donate items, please consider our Amazon Wish List as one way to send new items to families who need them.
