Spring into Action!

Be (in) Kind

What’s the easiest way to make an impact in another person’s life? Simple: Be Kind. This spring, New Pathways for Youth is making it simple for you to have an impact on the lives of our youth: Be (in)Kind. There’s no need to get out your checkbook or dress up for a fancy fundraiser. Do you have educational games lying around that were never opened? We’ll take them and put them to great use.

Program Needs that are always ongoing:

  • sports balls- basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, kick balls, whiffle balls, softer baseballs
  • flag football belts, baseball bats (plastic),hula hoops, jump rope, sidewalk chalk
  • card games, board games and puzzles for ages 5-16
  • books- K-7th grade reading level
  • educational games and tablets (Leap Frogs)
  • tickets to sporting, concert, and theatrical events
  • admission passes to museums, galleries, and parks
  • 20$ gift cards to movie theaters, music stores and department stores for awards and recognition
  • granola bars,  individually packaged gold fish
  • napkins, forks, spoons, cups and plates
  • bottled water

Being (in)Kind is the best way to help us prepare our youth for success! Creating a path to quality education begins with providing the materials youth need to be successful in school. Help ensure our youth are prepared to start the school year on the right path
