Terry: BRIAN IS A DIESEL

TECHNICIAN, BUT SINCE THE

ECONOMY, THINGS ARE SLOW.

HIS WIFE CATHY EXPLAINS.

THERE IS ONLY ENOUGH TO

PAY ALL OF THE BILLS.

YOUR ELECTRIC AND WATER.

WELL, YOU CAN'T GO WITHOUT

ANY OF THAT, BUT THEN THERE

IS NOTHING FOR FOOD.

Reporter: CATHY WANTED

TO GET BACK INTO THE

WORKFORCE, BUT CHILD CARE

COST MORE THAN A JOB WOULD

BRING IN.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW THEY

WERE GOING TO FEED THEIR

FAMILIES OF SIX.

THEN CATHY HEARD ABOUT A

SLOWLY FOOD BANK SUPPORTED

BY "OPERATION BLESSING."

THE DIRECTOR SAYS THE PAST

FEW YEARS HAVE BEEN

DIFFICULT FOR MANY FAMILIES

IN NORTHEAST, OHIO.

PEOPLE JUST CAN'T MAKE

IT.

THEY CAN'T DO IT.

AND THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO GO

SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE THERE IS

MORE WORK.

I WOULD SAY PO POVERTY HAS

JUST INCREASED IN ALL OF

COURSE, PROBABLY ABOUT 30%,

40%.

TEAMPLET WITH THAT KIND OF

AN --

Terry: WITH THAT KIND

OF INCREASE OF PEOPLE IN

NEED, "OPERATION BLESSING"'S

HELP IS NEEDED MORE THAN

EVER BEFORE.

WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

Terry: ANOTHER THING

THAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM

SPECIAL IS ITS VOLUNTEERS,

INCLUDING CATHY FRENCH.

ANYBODY WHO HAS BEEN

AFFILIATED WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING," I JUST WANT TO

THANK THEM FOR EVERYTHING

THEY'VE DONE FOR EVERYBODY.

ALL OF THEIR DONATIONS, ALL

OF THEIR GENEROSITY --

THEY'VE MEANT THE WORLD TO US.
