PR Donation.jpg


As a 501(c)3 organization, Pathways operates entirely on grants and donations from the community. It takes a great deal of supplies to operate; any donations from the community are greatly appreciated. Our current wishlist is below. 


*DISCLAIMER* Any household donations to Pathways that are in excess of what we already have are shared with other agencies in Yankton. 

Items We are Not Accepting

  • Decorative items (Paintings, fake plants, knick  knacks,)

  • Clothing donations : We ask that the community donate all clothing to Goodwill or the Clothing Closet. The Clothing Closet holds quarterly donation drives. The exact times and locations of the drive will be announced by The United Way each quarter.
