This charity is so annoying! I have been getting non-stop phone calls from "IL number"- I had NINE in one day, starting at 8:15 AM on Saturday for goodness' sake, and sometimes lasting until after 9PM! Thank God I have a phone blocker function on my phone. Now I'm getting unsolicited emails from these people. We donate to charity every year, all year, and these stupid, constant, unsolicited emails and phone calls do nothing other than anger me. They may do good work, but they're making no headway with our household. I feel like we're being stalked.
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.
Review from CharityNavigator
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.
