Our Marietta-San Judas program has been running since January 2012 and it recently moved to San Judas from San Benidicto in Smyrna. The children have benefited from the leadership of Ms. Sandy for the past several years. She does a great job of lining up guest speakers (a Delta pilot, an Army reservist, and Ms. Adama who hiked the Appalachian Trail to mention just a few), encouraging the children to read, and making it all a ton of fun. The children have also been on a theater outing to see Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and many of them join the children in the Marietta program for summer camp.

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.
