Human Kindness Walk planned for next month BRYAN CLARK Spirit Staff CHARLES TOWN - Local citizens and charitable organi- zations are planning an event to help raise aid and awareness of the problem of homelessness in Jefferson County. Officials from Community Ministries, the Homeless Co- alition and the City of Charles Town gathered at the Jefferson County Food Pantry on Sat- urday night to plan a "Human Kindness Walk." The walk will begin at the Community Ministries build- ing on May 6, at 2 p.m., and it will proceed to a number of lo- cal churches active in the battle against homelessness. Those interested in joining the walk are asked to bring $1 and a canned food item, which will benefit Community Ministries. ' They are also asked to wear red T-shirts to show their solidarity with the homeless. The meeting was spurred on and inspired by Arrnand Young, a Ranson man with an dedica- tion for charitable acts. Young was the force behind obtaining a home for the Embrey fami- ly, who lost their home and all their possessions in an October fire. Young wound up in Ranson after completing his own "Hu- man Kindness Walk." After nearly dying from a drug over- dose, Young decided to turn his life arotmd. He sold his house and all his possessions, and walked from California to New York helping homeless fami- lies get employment and hous- ing. Young says he is planning an- other "Human Kindness Walk" back from New York to Cali- fomia within a few months. ...another man's treasure ROBERTSNYDER The Harpers Ferry Flea Market opened its summer season last month to heavy turnout.
