Help Ease the Burden

From the article, "Newly Poor Swell Lines at Food Banks" in the NYTimes:

“These are people who never really had to ask for help before,” said Brenda Beavers, human services director for the Salvation Army in New Jersey, which dispenses emergency food supplies at 30 pantries throughout the state. “They were once givers and now they’re having to ask for assistance.”

If you're one of the fortunate ones who still have a job, try and remember to donate to
your local food bank...
