Scam. Telemarketers using computerized "folksy" recorded voices prompted by a human who is not allowed to speak. Ask a question and the computer says repeatedly -- "the police are sure doing a great job out there!." Eventually got a live person by repeating "supervisor", "supervisor".... She finally admitted that her company keeps 85% of the money they raise w/ only 15% going to Cal PAL.. and I'm sure only a tiny fraction of that goes to help kids. Do NOT give. Complain to California Attorney General's office. Indict 'em. Don't support 'em.

If you check their 990's you will find that more than 90% of their contributions go towards salary. They have a boiler room filled with staff who make phone calls to solicit money, which is what they seem to be all about, not helping anyone.
