Charities Struggling With Increased Poverty

The tough economic times have touched every aspect of our society. Local charities throughout our country have not been immune to the increased pressure to keep up with individuals and families who are in need of their services. The Los Angeles Times reports on the Catholic Charities of Orange County assembling dinners for 500 families, but attracting 920, with many leaving empty handed. With unemployment continuing to rise in all sectors, the white collar workforce is being heavily impacted and contributing to the increased pressures on charities.
