The News-Press: Fort Myers-Charities eye record season

The News-Press: Fort Myers: "October marks the beginning of the busiest time of year for charities, social-service groups and other nonprofits. This year, though, it’s unclear whether Floridians will have the extra cash to help the needy or whether increased insurance fees, gas prices and an economic slowdown will cut into holiday giving.

Social-service directors are hoping such factors haven’t pinched too many wallets.
“The holiday — the holiday is the time when I go and get that dollar,” Suarez told the elected leaders, business people and board members who had gathered for the launch."
