A Catholic Charities program that provides help to Valley men trying to get back on their feet is in need of donations.This is the only rack of men's clothing at the charity in downtown Fresno, because less people have been donating recently.

Officials at Catholic Charities say they need clothing for men who have lost their jobs.

Brian Key, Catholic Charities: "We've seen more people coming now, looking for work, not gonna do that in overalls and a tool belt."

Catholic Charities runs strictly on donations, and have to turn people away when there's nothing left.

Another program that offers bus tokens to people who don't have transportation to job interviews or medical appointments, is also running low on funds.

Catholic Charities is on 149 N. Fulton Street in Downtown Fresno. Their phone number is (559) 264-6414.
