In December of 2011 the City Union Mission terminated all of there employees from the thrift operations. This was over 25 employees. The Mission then hired a management company to take over there thrift store operations. This operation went from a not for profit to a for profit operation. In tough times tough choices have to be made. But questions of honesty have to be raised when the Mission continues to make the public think that donations and money from these operations are going to the Mission. On August 15th the Mission CEO Dan Doty gave an interview to local TV station KSHB about the grand opening of there new thrift store. They have also posted stories on there web site about there new thrift store. This is misleadign they are not operating these thrift stores. The donations to these thrift stores do not go to the Mission. The employees of these stores are not Mission employees. Unlike previously the staff do not even have to be supportive of a faith related belief. The profits of these stores are not going directly to Mission operations. At the worse the Mission and Mr. Doty are lying at best they are misleading the public into thinking this is a mIssion operated business. There is a lack of FULL DISCLOSURE. Shame on you Mr. Doty and your alleged Christian organzation.
