My elderly mother donated $10 to this organization. Then they billed her for $40. She's tried to reach them numerous times and no one answers the phone. What they're doing is tragic and quite possibly illegal. I would steer clear of them.

I would like to formally challenge this charities donor policy. They actively sell, trade and sell donor's personal information with the fallowing groups: Courtesy Call, Inc., Associated Community Services, Preferred Community Services, Inc., Community Call. These organizations in turn will call, write, and bill you on the behalf of other organizations. All with out your consent or permission. This is a flagrant violation and their rating should negatively reflect that.
