We recently partnered with PATH (People Attempting to Help) on a year-end matching funds campaign. We are excited to announce that the campaign was a huge success. It was successful both in terms of the financial support from the community but also the awareness that the partnership created in our community. Please take a look at the video below and read the press release for more details. We look forward to helping PATH make 2023 a year to remember. 


Press Release:

PATH (People Attempting to Help) is excited to announce results from the end-of-year matching campaign partnership with J. Chad Parker PLLC.

The campaign ran from December 25 to December 31 with contributions of equal value up to $25,000 matched by J. Chad Parker PLLC, doubling the impact of giving. As of today, $77,190.11 was raised during the matching campaign period for a total of $102,190.11 including the $25,000 matching gift.

“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 Smith County, open 40 hours per week and serves approximately 16,000 of our East Texas neighbors in need every year.

“Once again, our community showed its generosity and stepped up to help bridge the gap for those we serve,” said Andrea Wilson-Lobaugh, Executive Director of PATH. “We are seeing five hundred more families per month seeking food in comparison to last year coupled with rising costs. Due to the success of this partnership with J. Chad Parker PLLC, our pantry will be stocked for four months, helping PATH start the new year on a strong note with necessary funds to purchase items not normally donated to the pantry such as meat, milk, eggs and produce.”

While the matching campaign is over, PATH is still gratefully accepting donations to support ongoing programs and services. Donations can be made online at www.pathhelps.org or mailed to PATH, 402 W. Front St., Tyler, TX, 75702.
