I visited the Society's thrift store and the staff was so helpful to me while I shopped. Their staff must have gotten excellent training in customer service -I plan to go back again and will also donate items in the future. A very reputable charity!

I have been volunteering and supporting this organization for over 25 years. It is the most well run organization I have volunteered for. The staff, management and board is very professional, ethical, transparent, and runs above board. I love helping people and knowing my money is staying here locally.

This charity is one of the worst managed organizations I have ever seen. The director runs most of her personal expenses through the agancy. Meals, gas, cell phones for multiple individuals, as well as cherry picking premium items donated to the thrift stores. Agancy trucks and labor are used to drop off goods at the directors home. In appropriate use of corporate donations such as alcohol are used as bargaining chips for other favors. This charity lacks ethics and leadership. Approach with caution.
