Volunteer summer includes blue spaghetti and patience

Dominique Johnson scooped up a handful of blue spaghetti and dangled it over a piece of art paper as a young girl watched, smiled, and reached for the spaghetti to create some art of her own.

Her smile and her participation are why Dominique Johnson is heading to Stepping Stones Center every day this summer.

Johnson, 17, is one of hundreds of volunteers who are spending their summer making sure children with disabilities have a great experience at Cincinnati’s oldest summer camp for children with disabilities.
