We Care: Our December contributions to the Children’s Advocacy Center

For the months of December and January, the team at Pathways is continuing efforts behind the company-wide community outreach program by supplying necessary goods and other contributions to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Since 1998, Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania has helped more than 12,000 children and adolescents by effectively assessing and treating child abuse and neglect. Often experiencing shame and guilt, these children undeniably need the time, love and special treatment they receive at CAC to repair their broken childhood…and keep it from having a lasting effect on their adulthood.

At the CAC, visiting children and adolescents will be given the opportunity to receive treatment services such as medical exams and assessments, forensic interviews, professional consultation, trauma therapy, counseling, case review, case tracking, child advocacy services, child abuse awareness and prevention education and overall – a safe, positive place to feel welcome and secure.

During this time, our team will be collecting goods from a very simple wishlist of items. These items include:

Clothing (infant to adult sizes)
• T-shirts/Sweatshirts
• Shorts
• Socks
• Underwear
• Pajamas
• Coats/Jackets
• Walmart, Target Gift Cards

Snack Items
• Bottled Water
• Juice Boxes
• Individually packaged, non-perishable healthy snacks (pretzels, crackers, cookies)
• Grocery Store Gift Cards

Office/Cleaning Supplies
• Lysol, Windex, Febreze, Clorox Wipes
• Hand Sanitizer
• Tissues
• Staples Gift Cards

Throughout the month of December, we will also be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children aged 2-18 to help spread holiday spirit.

We will also be collecting hats, gloves and scarves so those in need can stay warm throughout these cold winter months. Other needed donations are juice boxes, small water bottles, and snacks that are provided to all children who visit the center.

It’s never too late to start doing your part for someone in need. Interested in making a donation? Click here to learn more.
