As we reflect on the remarkable journey of the “Pathways/The Path Holiday Hope 2023,” it fills our hearts with immense gratitude and pride. This year, our focus was on bringing joy and hope to families, particularly children who have experienced the profound loss of a parent or caregiver. Thanks to the unwavering support and generosity of our donors, we’ve been able to turn this vision into a heartwarming reality.

A special shoutout to Karen Boateng, whose tireless efforts in soliciting donations, assembling food baskets, and coordinating the distribution process have been nothing short of extraordinary. Her dedication and hard work have been the driving force behind this successful initiative.
