Interfaith Ministries helps Texomans who need assistance with food and finances, but the dog days of summer are taking a toll on the non-profit organization.
Interfaith officials say over the past two months, they've had more people turning to their food pantry.
They've also taken requests for help with utilities and rent.
But while the requests are pouring in officials say that's not the case with monetary donations.
"We've had... been spending more money cause we have seen a greater need and that's how we feel we need to respond but we really need the community to step up and help out so we can continue to provide help for people," says Jean Payne, executive director for Interfaith Ministries.
Payne says finances are not yet in the red.
However, she is concerned if monetary donations don't start coming in soon, finances could get there in August and September; the months Interfaith typically receives its highest number of requests.
