Edmonton charities feeling Scrooged

Edmonton charities feeling Scrooged: EDMONTON — Several Edmonton non-profits are feeling squeezed as their annual fundraising campaigns face massive shortfalls.

“We’ve never seen it this low in our entire history,” said Cheryl Feldstein, vice-president development for The Lung Association, Alberta and N.W.T. The organization hoped to raise $900,000 this year, but is currently sitting at $575,000.
