Volunteers on Greater KC Day

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As fans celebrate Royals opening day, hundreds of volunteers came out for Greater Kansas City Day.

This is the 32nd annual event where roughly 1,200 volunteers stopped at various places throughout Kansas City selling a special edition of Kansas City Star opening day newspapers and Royals flags.

The money benefits the Rotary Youth Camp , which gives children who are disadvantaged or disabled the chance to have fun at camp.

"You know growing up, I think anything I can do and anything anybody can do that's going to improve that part of life of kids, I think it's pretty awesome," Royals Hall of Famer Frank White said. "It's really neat to know that you're helping improve the quality life of kids and they get to experience rotary camp and be in the country and normally they don't get the opportunity to do so I'm all for that."

It also raises money for other Kansas City charities.
