The donations that keep Care and Share Food Bank going have been so low they've had to lay off several people.

Three full-time employees have been let go and two others had their hours cut to part-time.

We all saw just how much Care and Share did to help victims and firefighters during the Waldo Canyon fire.

The agency said Friday they think donors are hesitant because they're taking home less pay after the tax law changes.

Lynne Telford, the President and CEO of Care and Share says "We hope the community will remember that people are hungry all year round and continue to support us. we really depend on our local community."

Care and Share says donations were on target in December- but dropped even more than usual after the first of the year.
