Back to School supplies drive

Back to School Supply Drive

Our annual Back to School drive is here!

Imagine showing up for school on the first day and not having what you need to succeed – no backpack, folders, or pens. This lack of supplies creates an immediate barrier to your success. How exactly are you expected to take notes or manage your paperwork?

That is the reality for many of the youth in our program.  You can make a difference for our students! At the beginning of last school year, Carlos, age 15, came by the center to pick up his new backpack filled with all the supplies he needed. His face broke into a giant smile. “This is my first new backpack ever. Thank you!” he exclaimed.

Creating a path to quality education begins with providing the materials these youth need to be successful in school. Your generosity is helping to level the playing field for academic success now and for the long term.

Please join us!

Supplies needed are:

  • Blue and/or black pens
  • #2 pencils
  • Highlighters
  • Crayons
  • Backpacks
  • Scissors
  • Three ring binders
  • Tablets

Donations can be dropped off at New Pathways for Youth in July. Please contact Mary Beth Gregory to arrange for a donation drop off.
