(Tyler) PATH (People Attempting to Help) is excited to announce a unique opportunity to double your end of year donation though a holiday partnership with J. Chad Parker PLLC.

That means that when you donate to PATH between December 25 and December 31, a contribution of equal value up to $25,000 will be matched by J. Chad Parker PLLC, effectively doubling the impact of your giving.

“You can never go wrong with loving your neighbors,” said J. Chad Parker, founder and owner of J. Chad Parker PLLC. “PATH offers a unique opportunity to help as many of my neighbors as I can when they need it the most.”

According to PATH, the $25,000 match will support PATH’s Choice Food Pantry. PATH’s Choice Food Pantry is the largest in our area, open 40 hours per week and serves approximately 20,000 of our East Texas neighbors in need every year.

“As rising costs have impacted all of us, our neighbors in need served by PATH have been especially hard hit,” said Andrea Wilson-Lobaugh, Executive Director of PATH. “Currently we are seeing 500 more families per month seeking food in addition to our budget being affected by rising costs. This generous matching grant will stock our pantry for four months, giving PATH the opportunity to start the new year on a strong note with enough funds to purchase items not normally donated to the pantry such as meat, milk, eggs and produce.”

Donations will be accepted online at Gifts can also be mailed to PATH, 402 W. Front St., Tyler, TX, 75702 and must be postmarked by December 31 to be included in the matching funds.
