In the works

    Tom MacDonald updates us on today’s effort to provide low income heating assistance in tough economic times:

    Social service groups gathered in north Philadelphia to talk about how to deal with shrinking budgets and increasing utility costs.  Organizers say its important to prepare before the weather gets cold and groups run out of money.

    Tom will have more this afternoon on All Things Considered.
