Support over 175 children this back to school season

Each year Peaceful Paths provides over 175 children with the necessary supplies to ensure a successful start to the school year. Help A Child Today! We are collecting items now through August 1, 2021

This Summer, we plan to continue our stuffed backpack sponsorship program. This is an easy way for you to virtually support a child by donating a pre-stuffed backpack for $25 directly from our website. 


Once you have completed the online backpack sponsorship, we will do the rest! We will purchase and deliver the supplies to the students and send you a thank you in the mail :-)

If you would prefer to donate individual items, we can accept school supplies at our Outreach Center where we have a drop box. 2100 NW 53rd Avenue, Suite A Gainesville, FL 32653. New items only please. We cannot accept items that are graphic or violent in nature. 

Drop off hours: 9:30am to 4:30pm, Monday thru Friday.

Back to School Bingo is a family-friendly event with prizes, food, and fun!

Back to School Bingo will be held on August 1st from 5-8pm at High Dive. In order to have a fun and safe event, we ask that guests wear masks at all times, unless you're eating. *We will have disposable masks if you need one.
