Has the outpouring of local support for the gulf coast states meant dwindling donations for some local charities?

That along with one of the nation's higher unemployment rates is a growing concern for several Mid-Michigan charities.

Some money normally going to those nearby charities has made a dramatic shift.

The Capital Area Salvation Army's received about $150,000 in Hurricane Katrina donations this past week, and only $250 for local efforts.

The Mid-Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Capital Area United Way share those concerns.
