Subaru share the love 2021

Mark Mills, Chief Executive Officer, was pleased to accept a check for $15,000 from Dan O’Brien of Dan O’Brien Subaru on Friday. PathWays is proud to be selected as their Home Town Charity in the Subaru “Share the Love” event for the second straight year. We are pleased to continue this valued partnership.

We have been utilizing the funds from last year’s donation to support children and families served in our Family Centered Early Supports and Services (FCESS) program. This program provides support to families with children under the age of three experiencing developmental delays. The funds have been used to help 21 families purchase specialized equipment to support their child’s developmental needs. We were also able to purchase over 20 pieces of adaptive equipment that we can loan to families for short-term and trial use. Additionally, we were able to purchase 50 books for the FSESS literacy initiative, provide additional respite and family support to 10 families and send three of our staff to a training in infant mental health.

PathWays is grateful to Dan O’ Brien Subaru for this generous donation. Thank you for having such a positive impact on our community.
