GIVING FROM THE HEART-Seven-and-a-half year old, Morgan Kraus wanted to do something kind for other children not as fortunate as herself. She recently had her hair cut at Accent Hair Salon in Rockford and donated it to the Children With Hairloss organization. Morgan is a student at Lakes Elementary and the daughter of Brian and Dana Kraus.
