News from The Roanoke Times -Bald is bountiful

News from The Roanoke Times -Bald is bountiful: "spokeswoman at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University said this year's hurricanes and the South Asian tsunami have had an effect on charities.

'The results are pretty mixed results across the board on how Hurricane Katrina giving has affected other charities,' said Adriene Davis. 'We do know that human services organizations ... often feel the pinch when there is a pinch at all in giving. That is often because there is an increase in the need for their services at the same time that there is a decrease in giving.''

The Rescue Mission's plight is similar to other human service agencies across the country.
