His story takes him from one of the poorest ghetto’s of St. Louis to running a Fortune 500 company, but the real story is his generosity around our city. And we take you to a summer camp that’s a real blast for the students taking part, and for some it’s even changing their future. Watch those stories and more on this edition of Impact.
