This was the worst experience I have ever had! I put usable donations out for them to pick up, they were nicely boxes and stacked. they showed up and threw the boxes to the back of the truck on top of all the other things in there. I am sure most of the stuff is unusable now! All and any glass will be shattered for sure.I wish I had video of this, you would be applaud also. They also left several items in my driveway! This is not garbage! DO NOT DONATE TO THIS ORGANIZATION! There are many other charities and organizations that will actually appreciate your donations. Very Sad!

I was encouraged by a friend whose wife has epilepsy to support through participation in the annual golf outing fundraiser a couple years ago. I've golfed in the event for three years now and they are all very well run, fun events. Interestingly since my participation I've learned of at least three other friends who have family members with epilepsy. I have encouraged all of them to get involved with the foundation.
