Gift Bag Night 2019
In an effort to share a little holiday cheer, the Associate Board rallies together to create gift bags for Urban Pathways’ clients. These gift bags contain items ranging from hygiene essentials such as toothpaste and deodorant to winter accessories including hats, gloves, scarves, socks, and much more.
Last year we raised over $12,000, plus additional donations of items, all of which was used to assemble over 900 gift bags for our clients across the city for the holidays!
Join us in making a difference this holiday season by giving to those in need!

Urban Pathways’ Associate Board has raised over $12,000, plus additional donations of items, all of which was used to assemble over 900 gift bags for our clients across the city for the holidays.
Whether you fundraised online, solicited donations of items, or came and helped assemble bags, this effort would not have been possible apart from your hard work.
Thank you for all that you do for Urban Pathways! We are grateful for your leadership and service!
Thank you to our in-kind sponsors for Gift Bag Night 2018
