On behalf of Pathlight, I want to thank our community for its generous support on Giving Tuesday. Between donations to Whole Children, Autism Connections and Pathlight, we raised around $16,000 (with donations still coming in) to support our programs.

As the pandemic grinds on into its second year, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are bearing the brunt — many are more medically vulnerable to the virus because of their disability and staying safe has meant an increase in isolation. For those who thrived being included in the community, the pandemic has meant a big step back.

In the face of this, Pathlight has strived to provide enrichment, adventure and a supportive community. We have offered virtual classes to students, workshops for families, outdoor in-person events when we can, and more.

The support we have gotten from our community has allowed us to keep up with these initiatives and continue to develop new ways to ensure that the people we serve are able to stay connected and engaged.

Look for Whole Children’s theater troupe on First Night in Northampton, where they will have their first public performance since 2019!

Thank you again for all your support.

Ruth Banta

Executive Director, Pathlight
