Christ Episcopal Church in Kennesaw started looking into a Path To Shine program in January 2017. With a lot of enthusiasm from a parishioner (who happened to be a retired Head Start director!), volunteers signed up and took part in the various required training sessions. Children from Pitner Elementary have been getting to know Donna and her team over the next weeks and years, as they come every Thursday after the school day has ended for snack, play-time, homework and reading support. If you are interested in helping this program you can contact Donna here.
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.
