Children squeezed, too, in poverty’s clutches

Carefree childhood is the luxury lost
The children of La Plata County are feeling the effects of a growing number of local families falling into poverty, social service providers say. Teenagers from the River Church serve lunch to children of a homeless family at the Manna Soup Kitchen. Facing the camera, from left, are Gabriel Foringer, Savannah McMannis, Graham Saunders, Johnathon Midgley, Sandra Spencer (a volunteer with Manna and not with The River Church group), Sierra Lehnhoff and Keni Randolph.
