Here's an idea for those who are tired of getting junk mail: see if you can donate through a Coinstar machine at your local grocery store. There's no fee, you don't have to give any information, and you can still donate. Perfect!

I am a very low income 65 year old lady, with a disability .
I was denied services and food by these people.
This is a fraudulent tax free organization that takes donations but does not do what they claim they do.
My son went their to pick up groceries for me. He was given 5 items in a grocery bag that I cannot eat. 1 box of pop tarts, 3 cans of soup, of bottle of grapefruit juice.
According to their website I am supposed to receive a 'senior pak' that is a 20 lb. bag of groceries twice a month. while exiting their parking lot, my son witnessed 2 Hispanic families having their cars loaded up with 2 carts filled with groceries.
They will gladly accept your hard earned money for their living expenses however.
Give to a non fraudulent organization instead.

Come on, Feeding America...we receive your mailings almost every other week, and today, we received TWO distinctly different, separate mailings...one in partnership with Con-Agra. The partnership one had all these fancy three-color prints that had been custom-scored for tearing, and both had enclosed envelopes. I donate, but I also worked in the printing business and in adminstration for several nonprofits. I know how much all these fancy mailings cost...how many mouths could you feed with your marketing budget? Hint: If someone didn't donate LAST month, you might want to wait a couple more before hitting them with a campaign again...that is, unless you're trying to up your admin salaries.
