Charity Calls Off Food Giveaway, Lack Funding
(Champaign, IL) -- A Christian charity in Champaign is canceling its annual Thanksgiving dinner box giveaway because it doesn't have enough money to buy the food. It'll be the first time in 21 years that Restoration Urban Ministries hasn't been able to give boxes to hundreds of needy families. The organization's Finance Director Judy Stoll told the "Post Gazette" donations have been down all summer and it hasn't started to pick up. Any contributions made now will go towards Christmas boxes.
