INDIANA POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
August 15, 2012

My parents are elderly. This organization calls them every couple of months that they are having their "annual donation drive," and since they have given in the past, can they make another donation. Rather than having my parents mail the check, they insist on coming by to pick up the check. I happened to be at my parent's house in July 2011 when they picked up a donation check. Again I was there in September 2011 when they picked up a check. They called again in November 2011, I answered the phone and told them that my parents would not be giving. I noticed in my parents checkbook, a couple weeks later, that there was a check to them, and my mom said they came by earlier that day. In February 2012, as I was coming up the drive to my parents house they were just leaving. Finally I was there in April 2012 and told them that my parents had given enough to the organization and do not call them again. I was told that they wouldn't be called again. August 15, 2012 my parents received another phone call from the group stating they are having their annual campaign drive and since they have given in the past, could they be counted on giving again? I told them my parents have already given twice this year and was told that they wouldn't be called on again for a donation.
