Volunteer Spotlight: KaRon Brooks – Morgan Park
KaRon Brooks learned about Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago from a coworker who recommended BGCC for her daughter and jumped at the opportunity to get involved with the organization. "I’m an involved parent, so when I first came to the Club I asked the staff ‘what do you need, how can I help?’ I quickly got involved as a volunteer and started to run my own leather craft program."
