CDRF put a bin on our parking lot without property owner's permission. We have called and sent certified mailed notices asking for removal of bin, and they have failed to respond! the bin is vandalized!! terrible sight on our parking lot!!
This is one of those organizations that "fly-dumps" donation boxes on properties when no one is looking and without permission. Any Internet research that you may do will tell you everything you need to know about their operations.
What really bothers me is that I have to spend money to have it removed AND it is contributing to landfill waste.
Just reviewed their tax returns through a Guide Star link. If I could rate them below a one star, I would.
All the money vanishes.
Wake up IRS!
Stealing using the collection boxes is bad enough, but not giving to the cause as a 501 (c) 3 should be criminal.
This charity, without permission from the Rite Aid Corporation, placed one of its bins in the Rite Aid parking lot near my home. The bin is regularly graffitied, gone through for clothing by our local homeless population, and is often surrounded by the junk people throw away, e.g., mattresses, furniture, scrap wood, bottles, etc. The area is usually a disgusting mess that makes my neighborhood (and Rite Aid) look terrible. The Childhood Disease Research Foundation has not responded to Rite Aid or to my letter and shows a disdain for the public that is shameful.
