Holiday Demands Challenge Charities


Bruce, Orlando De, The Florida Times Union


Some Northside charitable groups say that so far, they are

receiving adequate donations for the holiday season.

But as the demand increases, so does the possibility that they

may not be able to completely fill it, organizers say.

"We're holding our own, but of course there's not enough to go

who says his church helps about 100 people a month. "People give

us donations all year around."

But Jim Smith hasn't experienced such luck.

He is the facilities manager at the Youth Crisis Center on

Soutel Drive. The center counsels and provides various services
