More Than Just a Volunteer

NPR's Richard Gonzales reports on an elementary school volunteer who's become very involved in student's lives. Diane Mintz started out as a ready tutor, but now she's paying for meals, dental work, and eyeglasses for needy students at Coronado Elementary in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mintz even helped raised enough money this summer to send dozens of kids to camp.
