“The number of economywide job openings fell to 8.7 million in October, the lowest total since March 2021,” said ABC Chief Economist Anirban Basu. “This is a strong indication that the demand for labor is slowing, although the supply of workers is still far too low to meet that demand. The number of open, unfilled jobs across the economy still exceeds the pre-pandemic level by more than 1.7 million."

In place of our annual toy drive, ABC is collecting monetary donations on behalf of Marry Lee’s House!

Mary Lee’s House is Hillsborough County’s first and only Child Advocacy and Protection Center. Before Mary Lee’s House, key investigative medical, legal, and mental health providers for children who were abused or neglected were spread throughout all of Hillsborough County, children had to travel from place to place to receive required services. Mary Lee’s House offers a community collaboration of governmental entities, public agencies, and private donors, all brought together under one roof to provide the best protection for the children in our community.

We will be accepting donations at our Holiday Social this Thursday via cash, check, & card. Donations will close on Friday December 15th!
