DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A nonprofit organization that provides food and temporary housing in Dodge City is running out of donations.

Laura Koehn, director of the Manna House, says the pantry could be forced to close, at least temporarily, if more donations don't arrive.

Koehn says the Manna House served 428 people in August, an increase from 331 in May. The shelter provides about 425 boxes of food each month.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports (http://bit.ly/12oOFvF ) the nonprofit had to close for three days last year, and Koehn says it's possible that could happen again. She says two large donations this week will keep the center open through most of next month, if demand does not increase.

Koehn says the center mostly needs such staples as canned goods, beans, rice and tuna.
