    Millions of Americans Are Heading to Foodbanks for the First Time in Their Lives

    It is a long article but worth the time. If you can donate please.

    Rent is also becoming an issue for the unemployed, no jobs means more on the streets. There are allot of programs that one can donate to. It is little help as the funds can't last forever, unfortunately it looks like unemployment will.

    Also, do research before donating. Try to give to organizations that are on the front lines and dealing with people directly. Many charities, though they still do good work, operate with large administrative budgets that mean less of your dollar actually gets to the people you are intending to help.

    That's a big thing. Making sure the max amount gets to the ones who need the help. I would also say working thru some churches help. Of coarse do research on them as well.

    I volunteered to help at the local food bank here. Good nutrition is essential if a man is to work, a woman is to give birth, and a student is to study.
