Warm meals to warm hearts!



Through the rest of the month, PATH (People Attempting To Help) of Tyler will be collecting canned meats (beef, chicken, and tuna) and canned stews to create hearty meals for those in need. Your donations will help keep people warm and healthy in the colder weather to come.

Donations may be dropped off at the PATH food pantry Monday-Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm.

Blankets bring comfort and joy!



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.

Angel Tree gifts for children in need!



Salvation Army's Angel Tree program helps make Christmas possible for children in need. Each angel on the tree contains the information of one child, a want and a need of that child.

Stop by your local Walmart, Walgreens, Hobby Lobby and many more locations to “adopt” your angel today. You can also call in your adoption to your local Salvation Army.
