i'VE BEEN A MONTHLY DONOR FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS. PEOPLE THAT I KNOW ALL SAY WHAT A WORTHY CAUSE, WHICH IT IS RIGHTFULLY SO. THE FOOD BANK SENDS OUT A LETTER MONTHLY TELLING ME HOW IMPORTANT MY SUPPORT IS, IE SEE THE NEWS STORY SHOWN ON CHARITY NAVIGATOR'S NEWS ON THE FOOD BANK OF CENTRAL LOUISIANA. HOWEVER, I HAVE TRIED NUMEROUS TIMES TO CONVEY THE MESSAGE TO MS JANE-WRIGHT VELEZ (DIRECTOR) & HER ASSISTANT THAT MONTHLY DONATION/SUPPORT LETTERS ARE NOT NECESSARY AND COST THE CHARITY A GOOD AMOUNT OF MONEY SINCE THEY USE A FIRST CLASS STAMP. MY EFFORTS HAVE BEEN FRUITLESS TO THIS POINT. THIS BRINGS UP A LARGER PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. CHARITY NAVIGATOR SHOW'S A LOW SCORE FOR TRANSPARENCY INCLUDING NO FORM 990 AND THEY HAVE NOT UNDERGONE AN AUDIT. MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR AN AUDIT OF THIS ORGANIZATION. J REISZNER
