Our second option is also from PATH. They will be collecting blankets in the coming months. Running heat can become too expensive for many struggling families. Your donations will help keep these family's warm and safe this winter.

Make your donations at:

402 W. Front St. Tyler, TX 75702

Monday through Friday between 8:30am to 4:30pm

PATH will continue to distribute these blankets as long as they're in supply.
