*DISCLAIMER* Any household donations to Pathways that are in excess of what we already have are shared with other agencies in Yankton. If we cannot find another home for certain items, we have a volunteer who advertises the item within the greater Yankton region online. Individuals then donate money to our volunteer for the item. These funds are used to purchase any necessary items that are not budgeted (specific hygiene products, food for clients, etc.).
