Seasonal Support

Our seasonal programs provide school supplies, Thanksgiving meals and holiday gift cards thanks to the support and generosity of our community.


Winter Wishes

Share the joy of the holiday season by supporting Winter Wishes. Participants receive $30 gift cards. Last year, more than 1,700 neighbors in our community signed up to receive gift cards. Winter Wishes is a fun opportunity for co-workers, teams, families and groups to come together to make the holidays special for people in our community.




Back to School Program

We are grateful for the way our community comes together to make sure kids from 4K to college have what they need to be ready to learn. This effort would not happen without financial support and donations from individuals, churches and businesses and the work of our many volunteers!


Thanksgiving Meals

With your help, WayForward Food Pantry shoppers have the chance to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, choosing from holiday favorites and ingredients that are traditional to their families, including turkey, stuffing, gravy, pie, collard greens, ham, curry powder, coconut milk, masa harina and wild rice. A donation of $25 can cover the cost of a Thanksgiving meal for a local family.
