Holiday Giving Program
It's that time of year again! Our annual Holiday Giving Program will be kicking off in November. Last year, with the help of community supporters, we were able to brighten the holidays for over 150 families! We have different ways for you to support our Holiday Giving Program. Pick the one that fits you! All donors will be sent a letter of thanks as well as a receipt for tax purposes.
Adopt a Family:
Our Adopt a Family Program is back! Each client who needs support during the holidays works with an advocate to submit a wish list of specific needs and preferences. Donors that wish to adopt a family or individual person can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or call 352-377-5690) and let us know what size family you would like to adopt and we will match you! We ask that "wishlists" be filled by December 10. These items will be dropped off at our Outreach Office where we will wrap and distribute to the adopted family. *We do not accept wrapped presents. Please do not mail donations for an adopted family.
Another way to participate in our Holiday Giving Program is to shop on our general Amazon Holiday Wish List today! We have recently updated the Amazon Wishlist to reflect our high-demand items. These items will utilized to fill wish list gaps for families in need. Wrapping Supplies are always appreciated. We need all general donations by December 10. If you want to shop locally, we have included a list of highly requested items for your convenience.
As a reminder, if purchasing on Amazon, please use smile.amazon.com and select Peaceful Paths as your preferred organization. Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase back to your preferred non-profit.

Pay it Forward Calendar:
Back by popular demand, the Pay it Forward giving calendar is back. This is a fun way for a family, business, or group to collect high need items that we have listed on our calendar. These items come from both our basic needs and holiday list and they will directly be used to support survivors. Download the calendar today and start collecting your donations! We ask that we receive all Calendar items by December 10.
