The following paragraph is from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2" written by Jeff Kinney.
I'm sure our Giving Tree guy will throw his sweater in the trash, along with the ten cans of yams we sent his way during the Thanksgiving Food Drive.
It seems that there are a lot of usages of "way", and I don't understand how it's used in this sentence. What does "we sent his way" mean?
I can't find any explanation of that kind of usage even after checking in a couple of online dictionaries.
