Good Deeds
(clockwise from top right) Vanessa Johnson helped start Light on the Hill, an HIV/AIDS educational outreach program that focuses on African-American and Latino communities; Yusef Abdul-Wasi, director of gang prevention at Albany's Boys & Girls Club, helped give local youths constructive alternatives to gang life; Dwayne Alado credited his job selling BIGNews, a monthly literary publication that helps the homeless earn money, with lifting him out of homelessness and unemployment; members of Girls Inc. made a wish list of ideas to improve their Albany neighborhoods; Kate Abbott and Stephen LeBlanc, pictured here in their basement biodiesel fuel lab, made news as the first in the area to make their own automobile fuel by recycling leftover oils from restaurants; when Shokriea Yaghui's husband became one of many Arab-Americans rounded up and deported after Sept. 11, she became a fundraiser for Arab-American families enduring similar struggles.
