Volunteers help ‘snapshot’ homeless during annual count - Manna Meal - so the hungry can eat

CHARLESTON (AP) — Using their smartphones to see in the dark, Kevin Johnson, Amy Wolfe and Julie Alston walked along the railroad tracks on Charleston’s East End early Wednesday morning, looking for homeless people.

Johnson, a homeless outreach worker for Prestera, led his team first to an area behind Laidley Field. City officials broke up an encampment there last summer, Johnson said, but the people came back.
