Railroad Island man hikes donations to homeless neighbors


submitted photo • Sam Young has been spending much of this winter collecting, organizing and delivering donations for homeless neighbors living near the East Side. Young himself had been homeless when he was younger and says he wants to offer help like he received when he was struggling.
