Many people have settled into a new normal for the holiday season. It's just not as big or expensive. Everything from gifts to holiday meals are tamped down a bit. The problem is that another area of Holiday giving is seeing a cut-back. Some San Diego charities say donations of food and toys are not keeping up with increased demand.
