OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Salvation Army officials say more people are asking them for help but donations are falling with the country in an economic recession.
Social services director Toni Sanders in Oklahoma City says about 6,000 food kits were given to the needy in February compared to between 3,000 and 4,000 in February 2008.
And Sanders says she's seeing many people who've moved to Oklahoma because the word is the economy here is better than other
parts of the country and they're looking for work.
Those getting help receive a kit of frozen food, produce and a bag that includes items such as rice and beans.
The specific items vary depending on supplies and supplies are becoming scarce as donations have fallen off.
