The YMCA of Kanawha Valley will honor K. Richard C. Sinclair as the 2013 Spirit of the Valley recipient at a noon luncheon today at the Charleston Civic Center. The Spirit of the Valley campaign recognizes an individual from the community that has exemplified what Saint Francis described as a life of "charity and wisdom, patience and humility."
This marks the 29th year for the YMCA Annual Support Campaign. Last year, the campaign raised nearly $300,000 to support the YMCA's community assistance program for families to have access to childcare, programs and use of facilities. Through the campaign, the recipient can also choose other charities to assist. Mr. Sinclair selected the Childhood Language Center and WV Read Aloud to receive a portion of the funds.
