This summer, The Athens NEWS plans to look at how the state’s poor economy and rising gas prices are impacting local government agencies and non-profits. Here are the first couple stories in a weekly series:
Gas prices, funding cuts batter Lottridge food bank, June 30, 2008
Seniors group cuts staff in response to budget cuts, gas prices, July 7, 2008
Disaster in the making: Regional food bank falls behind need, July 7, 2008
These stories come as no surprise to those of us working in human services, but thanks to the Athens News for sharing the stories of the impact on local services and the people they serve.
If you'd like to share a story, please comment!
