March 15-April 15, 2021

The My Path Forward Team is excited to serve an increased number of participants in both our traditional and independent living programs. To keep up with the demand, we are asking our supporters to participate in our Virtual Food Drive to replenish our pantry. We stock our pantry with items our young people may need as they enter the program or become temporarily unemployed. We also use our pantry items as an emergency community resource to youth ages 17-25 who do not enter our program but need assistance. Please help us restock by donating any of the following items or by making a monetary/gift card donation.

  • macaroni and cheese
  • ramen noodles
  • cereal (Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios)
  • granola/protein bars
  • pudding cups
  • pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • boxed dinners
  • peanut butter and jelly
  • canned fruit
  • microwavable meals
  • pancake mix
  • syrup
  • laundry detergent
  • toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissue
  • personal hygiene items (deodorant, feminine products, etc.)
  • household cleaning supplies

In an effort to keep everyone safe during COVID-19, we have designated days for donation drop off –Mondays and Wednesdays 8a-12p. For all other drop off dates/times, please reach out to Sarah Peters at 804-353-0191 x100 to coordinate.
