What’s New

Be a Secret Santa for a Refugee Child or Family!

One of the highlights of our year is always end-of-the-year holiday giving. Last year, donors gave over $7,700 worth of gifts for children and families so they could feel the love of the holidays. Our Secret Santa program is back, so get ready!

Shop our Amazon Wish list so we can give all 180 refugee children in our afterschool programs something to play with and something to read! We have also included wish list items for other refugee youth and families we serve through our programs.

For those who prefer to do their shopping in-person, you can drop off items at any Finder Keepers Consignment locationthrough mid-December. Be on the lookout for more information, and happy-shopping, friends.

In-Kind Donations and Wish List

Thank you in advance for your generosity to New American Pathways and the families we serve.

DONATE YOUR VEHICLE: Interested in donating your car, truck, motorcycle – even your motor home – to New American Pathways? We work with CARS to do the heavy lifting. Here are the details.

IN-KIND DONATIONS: We also accept donations to help furnish apartments and provide basic needs and clothing for newly arriving families and others in need. When planning a donation drop off, please call ahead so that we have staff available to assist you.

IN-KIND DONATION FORM: Before you bring your donations, please fill out this in kind donation form. You may add in the value of each item to help complete your taxes. Please bring two copies of the form, so that we can sign one for you and keep one copy for our records.

CLOTHING AND BASIC HOUSEHOLD ITEMS: These small items are accepted in small quantities in our Suite 100 office at the reception desk from 1 – 4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please fill out the donation form above to save time when you come by. You may also donate gently used adult clothing to Finders Keepers Consignment and ask them to put it on our account so that the organization benefits from sales. You may do the same with children’s clothing through Jack and Jill.

FURNITURE: Pick-up of furniture donations is limited to 15 miles from our office and must be scheduled in advance. We are happy to provide a letter of acknowledgement of all donations for tax purposes. Simply download and fill out the form above and submit at time of drop-off. Note: Due to liability issues, we cannot retrieve items from inside your home or apartment. Please place them outside on a porch or in a garage (not near any vehicles). Clearly label the items you want us to take, in case you are not present when we arrive.
Items we do NOT take: mattresses, frames for bed sizes other than twin or full, items with significant rips or stains, incomplete items (such as drawers missing from a dresser), sofa beds or futons, wardrobes or very heavy dressers, pictures and/or their frames, mirrors, decorative items such as vases.
