The school counselor has told us that she hears "nothing but good things about Path To Shine." She also said, "I can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate the dedication and hard work of all of the volunteers." The quilt pictured at right was made by one of the Mentors, showing the children just how important they are!

There's a buzz on Tuesday afternoons in the school library. Games played, stories told, conversations between adults and children, all the while relationships are being built. The children have come to know the merry band of Mentors who show up faithfully each week. This year the children have learned a lot about manners from how to lay a table to how to introduce themselves; they have learned about kindness and friendship, and they learned about money, and what it means to save money.

St. Teresa's Episcopal Church in Acworth began working with elementary school children in Dallas in September, 2016. The school counselor was involved in identifying students who would most benefit from the program. If you are interested in helping with this program, please contact J.J. Jonathas.

Donate a New Book to a Dallas 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.
