A group of children from the neighborhood had been learning about teamwork, rules, honesty and sportsmanship through the game of soccer, thanks to the husband and wife team of Greg and Lisa Herring. Starting in February 2014, the children also began benefiting from Path To Shine's after-school program. If you would like to volunteer by tutoring, providing snacks or other supplies please contact Lisa Herring from St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
Many children have limited access to books. New books are considered treasures to under-served children. Please help us spread the love of reading and provide a few new books to a program participant.
Through a special arrangement with 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.
Thanks to the leadership of Mentors at Path To Shine - Columbus, our children are well on their way to becoming successful gardeners. Each child received pots, soil, and tomato plants with instructions. Gardening is a great thing to teach children while school is not in session. As a result of gardening, children learn how to grow things, follow instructions, and commit to a daily routine. Being outside and breaking from screen time and being indoors is good for our children. Enjoy the happy faces of our children at Path To Shine - Columbus.
Path To Shine® has been serving elementary-school children across middle and north Georgia since 2010.
