The Garrett Road Site is requiring donors to complete a donation form for THEIR records that states the donor's name and address, then the attendant gives donor a tax receipt. Attendant does not know why this is being required of them, just said it is directive from their corporate headquarters. I contacted the Central NC Goodwill website and they referred me to the Eastern NC website - said there are actually 4 independent Goodwill Headquarters in NC and each operate independently, so Central NC Goodwill would not answer my question as to why this new record keeping policy was instituted, or whether it was even legit or just some local attendants gathering up names and addresses for whatever purpose.I have been a longtime doner but I am not donating anymore if I don't get a sufficient response. I don't want advertising spammers mailing me or visiting my doorstep and I don't need Goodwill to waste $ on sending thankyou notes (if that is even an intention). If this is for their corporate tax reporting, a sign should be clearly posted on the inside wall for donors to avoid concerns.

This store traffics in drugs, employs drug convicts, calls the cops on donors, and fabricates legal cases against donors they harass. They appear to hate White people. Dana Marie Lynn impersonated in court the employee (still unknown) I donated items to. Lynn and the employee perp multiple felonies in this case. I spent two years in court defending myself. Apex, NC Police were involved because they traffic in drugs, as does the Raleigh PD. Lynn is still there.

$800,000.00 a year to Dennis & Linda McLain. How can they qualify as a non-profit? With the little they do I will give to the Salvation Army next time. I fell that the public should know that there donations are going to fill the McLain pockets not help people.

$800K a year for the husband and wife president and VP. I'll keep donating but I'll find another organization to which to donate. These people are scum.
