My husband and I purchased cases of bottled water, case of can goods, non parishable snacks. we also brought over mens and women clothing. We went to the Red Cross and they said they would take only the bottled water! They asked if the clothes were brand new and we said no they said they didn't want them either. The local churches that set up relief centers gladly took all the rest. All they ever want is money. Don't be fooled by a financial statement I am an accountant and included in the so called program expenses can have salaries, vehicles, etc. I would like to see a more detailed P/L.
There was no one at the center either except the Red Cross volunteers. This will not be my choice next time I want to donate.
