Be an angel: Give


There's a 25 percent increase in the need for angels this year.

The increased demand for people who are willing to dig deep into their pockets and hearts is matched by the increasing number of people in need.

A tough economy that's cut work hours, jobs and paychecks has meant a sharp climb in pleas for assistance this Christmas for everyday items like diapers and food, as well as gifts to put under the tree for a child.
