2022 Back to School “Stress Relief” Drive at New Pathways

What: We know how important managing mental health is for our youth  – especially at the start of a new school year. This year, in addition to providing backpacks and school supplies for our youth, which are being provided by Toyota Financial Services, American Studio Design, and other community partners, we are providing additional items to help our youth deal with the stress of returning to school.  

How:  The easiest way to support our drive is to order directly from our Amazon wishlist. Additionally, Items can be dropped at our office or sent via mail (to address below). We are open from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Thursday (our office is closed on Friday’s due to summer hours).
