I begin volunteering with KC United as a way of giving back to my community. I grew up in Kansas City, Kansas and this type of program was not available when I was growing up.
As a parent I seen volunteers spend their time & money to help children who couldn’t afford to pay, but desperately wanted to participate. It takes a village to raise a child and I was blessed to have found a program that wanted the best for my children as much as I did.
Now this is my opportunity to pay it forward. I don’t know much about sports; but I use the talents God’s blessed me with to enrich the lives of children. Our future leaders…………………..
