PathWays PA Holiday Kits

Families arrive at PathWays PA throughout the year - even during the holiday season. Each year, we have families move in to our residential programs in the last two weeks of December, after we have collected gifts for all of the families that we have matched through Adopt A Family.

To ensure that the families that enroll in our services in December have a happy holiday season, PathWays PA has created the Holiday Kit.  Similar to the Welcome Kits, we will send you a document with lists of items that we would typically give to a family for the holidays.  We have four Holiday Kit lists—mother, child, baby, and teen girl.  Just like with the Welcome Kits, your level of support is completely up to you.  The Holiday Kits help to ensure that families’ needs are met while also giving families gifts to open during the holidays. Unlike the Welcome Kits, the Holiday Kits are more toy and gift oriented.

All items can be delivered to our NEW office location, 1300 E. Macdade Boulevard, Folsom PA 19033. Please call 610-543-5022 with any questions or to let us know when you will be delivering the items. Our office hours are typically 9-5, Monday-Friday.
