2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana January 29 Street Relief Radiothon will be Feb. 26 The fourth" annual Street Relief Radiothon will be held Feb. 26-28 at Eastland Mall in Evansville. WSTO Radio do- nates its airwaves to the effort -- which to date has raised over $150,000. Money raised in the cam- paign is distributed to ap- proximately 40 organizations that feed, clothe, house, counsel or provide legal ser- vices to the homeless. Thousands of pounds of non-perishable food and toi- letry articles have also been donated in past years. According to the Street Re- lief Church Committee, fed- eral and state budget cuts have reduced resources for poverty programs, which is why Street Relief is needed. Economic stagnation has placed thousands of families at risk of becoming homeless. Many persons with jobs do not earn sufficient wages to cover their needs. According to the commit- tee, statistics compiled by the Evansville Coalition for the Homeless confirm that home- lessness is a growing prob- lem.
