Young Men & Veterans Provide Beacon of Hope to South Side
“First, I asked Rob, do [the veterans do projects] for free,” Kamaron recalls. After he confirmed he could count on Rob and his Platoon for help, he talked to his school principal, Joan Gross.
“I told her I had somebody to come to fix the school up,” Kamaron said.
Ms. Gross was overjoyed to hear the news, saying that it was nice “to have one of our students advocate for us.”
Rob, Kamaron, and the rest of the volunteers spent most of their Saturday, painting, cleaning, and beautifying the school’s campus—including Principal Gross’s office!
Kamaron says he felt good fixing up his school, and hopes other students will appreciate and take pride in their school’s new look.
Thanks to Rob for organizing the event, and kudos to Kamaron and our boys for making a difference in their community!
