I have read few negative comments re the trash bags sold by the SC wheelchair vets. I have been getting then for a few years now. No complaints. I find them strong and durable--I even got some for my daughter. Don't know what all the hollering is about...I think they do great work--they are small and trying to make a difference--I enjoy supporting them and have never been harassed by them .

Dear Eric,
I just received my 100 13 gallon trash bags. I made a check out for $49.95 as agreed. I then checked you out. First Googiling you and eventually getting to your web site. Your testimonials are great. You donate a lot of “canteen books”, which provide hair cuts, etc. to veterans (according to your switchboard operator). I also saw several cash donations as well as computers. That is great but I can get a lot more bang for my buck by taking a check to LB VA Memorial hospital, which I will do.
During my web search I also discovered you are President of EJC Enterprises, Inc. I could not find your website. Every business has a website.
I have to believe you are a complete fraud and will investigate how to get you shutdown.
If you send me a shipping container and return postage I would gladly return your trash bags.
Regards,

Bob McElney
PS: Please put me on your don’t call list.
Bet this one does not end up on your websites testimonials.
