In times of great need, we all need each other, said the Rev. Jessie Adams, minister of youth and children at Pleasant Dale Baptist Church.
With a sluggish economy and a 17.9 percent unemployment rate in Lancaster County, the needs are greater than ever. Charitable organizations are almost at the breaking point.
On the verge of the holiday season, with many parents struggling to pay bills and provide the essentials, Adams said feelings of hope and despair are magnified even more.
