Local charitable organizations are also suffering from the economy. Meals on Wheels in Denison put out a plea for more volunteers.
Meals on Wheels in Grayson County serves hundreds of senior citizens who otherwise wouldn't get a hot meal.
The problem is increased gas prices. But officials with the program say despite the expense volunteers sometimes get just as many of the benefits as those they serve.
If you would like to donate your time and volunteer for meals on wheels, call 903-463-1711.
