6:04 am
themselves in a deeper financial hole. the emergency program that provides federal unemployment benefits after state help is exhausted has ended. all together nearly 1.5 million jobless americans are finding themselves starting the new year without that financial assistance. and the loss of unemployment benefits means the need is going to be higher, especially for nonprofits. they are already struggling this time of year. one local nonprofit expects a nearly 75% drop in donations. it also says the pool of people they help could double now that unemployment benefits for so many have ended. lisa amin gulezian has more. >> the total budget. >> reporter: lisa works hard for the contra costa food bank. this e-mail will go out for a last minute push to get donations. >> immediately after december
