Alexa Capeloto GLENDALE -- A local charity is turning away clothing donations because it has nowhere to store the items. Loaves and Fishes, a nonsectarian aid program run by Glendale's Catholic Charities, is best known for providing food for families out of its pantry. Until last year, it also ran the Loaves and Fishes Thrift Store on Brand Boulevard, where donated clothing and toys were sold to help support the food program. But since the thrift store closed in July 1999 due to rising rent, the group has had nowhere to keep donations except in its own offices.

GLENDALE — The city’s food pantries are continuing to get squeezed by an increased demand for services, even as donations remain at anemic levels in a depressed economy. In the vicious cycle, donors get more thrifty as the economy sours, but demand for food assistance and other relief rises. For Glendale’s two major food banks, the formula has meant more stress, more work and a reevaluation of operations. “I think every agency in the area is working really, really hard to help people, and it’s getting harder and harder — we need help,” said Lora Young, program coordinator for Loaves and Fishes, a food bank in south Glendale operated by Catholic Charities of Los Angeles Inc. Donations at Loaves and Fishes are down 25% over the past year, and yet an average 60 additional households have sought food assistance in the past few months, she said.

GLENDALE — The effects of an economic downturn have exerted greater pressure on many of the city’s nonprofits, which have seen a significant increase in the demand for services among low-income clients, according to recent statistics. Many of the social service programs that are considered to be on the frontline — food pantries, homeless shelters, child care and job assistance — reported service numbers for the end of fiscal 2007-08 that far surpassed their original funding proposals to community development officials.
