A call was made a day in advance of volunteering to ensure the correct time to attend. When I arrived, there was already a large group of volunteers working and after less than 1 hour I was told my attendance was unnecessary. In addition, my large donation of six bags of clothing and toys in excellent condition was taken and displayed for use immediately, but the office staff refused to give me a receipt for my donation. Yes, there is a sign that says "receipts will not be given for any donation" but it speaks to a lack of accountability and oversight. The IRS no longer requires an itemized list for donations, only the number of packages should be specified and this shelter seems unaware.
