Acts of kindness: August 2007 Archives

Chicago Police Officer Gerold Lee, of Bridgeport, volunteers as a mentor to Harold Washington College student Angie Wines through the Illinois Education Fund. For the last year, Lee has met with Wines, who wants to be a police officer, every month to help her prepare for a job in law enforcement. "There's personal rewards and satisfaction in helping people out the best you can," he says. "It feels good."
