At The Pathway School, we are committed to ensuring that no one in our community faces hardship alone. Our Emergency Student Needs Fund provides short-term support to Pathway students and families in need of essentials like food, clothing, transportation, hygiene products, and more. Thanks to the generosity of our community, this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign raised $1000 for the fund, allowing us to extend a helping hand to those facing temporary financial crises.
The main purpose of the Emergency Student Needs Fund is to provide anonymous assistance to the Pathway community, emphasizing the importance of privacy when seeking help. During the holiday season, we extended our outreach through a gift sponsorship program called “Helping Hands.” Staff members generously sponsored families, purchasing gifts of their choosing within a specified budget. This initiative was created in hopes of bringing joy and warmth to Pathway families during a time that can be particularly challenging for some.
At the center of these efforts is our Resource Coordinator, Mary DiMatteo, working to ensure that every member of the Pathway community receives the resources needed to navigate their current situations. With a proactive approach, Mary plays a crucial role in connecting individuals with the support they need. At Pathway, we believe in the power of community, and these programs reflect our dedication to helping as many people as possible. Together, we strive to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need, embodying the spirit of compassion that lies at the heart of The Pathway School.
