Path To Shine Marietta works with Olive Springs Baptist Church.  Dr. Randy Cheek was very welcoming when we first approached him about the program, and the church provides us with wonderful space and hospitality. We have watched the children grow up and go off to middle school, while their younger siblings have now joined the program. We have been meeting on Mondays during the school year since August 2011. To get involved, please contact Ellen Gaffney or Julie Savini.

Donate a New Book to a Marietta Program Participant

Many children in our programs have limited access to books. Please help us spread the love of reading and provide a few new books to a program participant. Through an organization called First Book, Path To Shine is able to purchase brand new books for program participants for pennies on the dollar. First Book prices range from 45 cents to $5 per book. Your donation of $5 will enable us to purchase at least one new book for a child in this program.

Summer 2017 Update
Thanks to a grant from United Way of Cobb County the children who participated in our summer camps this year were on the receiving end of a big treat. We were able to take them to see the Atlanta Dream professional basketball team. On top of that they had loads of fun with activities that reinforced the core principle of "practice makes perfect" in order to achieve your dream goals. Art camp included some science as well! The children made slime and silly putty and lava lamps. It was a wonderful couple of weeks filled with joy!

Spring 2017 Update
We had a wonderful day at the zoo mostly thanks to some well-behaved but excited children! Only a handful of the children had ever been to the zoo before, and there were so many questions, it was a gift to be there. We have plans to visit Fernbank Natural History Museum at the end of May, thanks to the generosity of some of their donors.
