TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Fewer donations and lagging investments has a
state American Red Cross chapter hurting.

A spokeswoman for the charity's Tampa office says 22 staffers -
nearly half the staff - has been laid off. A 23rd position that was
currently unfilled was also cut.

Those that remain are taking a pay cut.

The charity normally has an annual budget of $4.5 million, but has recorded a $1 million shortfall in the past four months.
