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.

Summer Program Items Needed by May 31st:

  • 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

Both Biz Bash in October and other upcoming events will be amazing opportunities through an in-kind donation to bring greater impact to our youth.
