As I sat helplessly watching a friends house burn to the ground with everything he has going up in smoke, I felt that I needed to help. He now has no clothes NOTHING. Help and hope & second time around both told me that are not allowed to donate anything, yet thay get everything that thay have from batesville as a small town of family and friends & neighbors. I ask for only a pair of jeans and a couple of shirts. NO is what I got.

This is terrible ..I have given them bags and bags of clothes ..name brand I may add and they can't give you one pair of jeans for your friend. I too will never give to them again. Its so sad to see someone lose everything and you go and ask for help and they do this..good luck to you and this person that lost everything.

This has got to be a joke. After all my wife and I have given them they can't even give back just a little. I will NEVER give them another thing. That is awful.

I agree. I give lots to this place. Not anymore I'm done. Wake up people. Help your neighbors. This is a used pair of jeans ..don't you have several hundred?? You can't give one pair to help out someone?

Before we go condemning this organization, is there any evidence if these accusations other the posting of a anonymous man on a mostly in moderated forum sit that has a reputation for starting baseless rumors. If this is indeed true, it is a very unfortunate event and these programs should be replace with ones that do their job. However, until then, it would be a shame to see a donation organization do poorly due to some post with no evidence or credibility (since it is anonymous and you could say anything).

I will agree with your concern about making false statements. But if it will help u with your concerns, go and ask if u can get even a small donation to help a family in need. Unfortunately will see that this isn't a false statement.

It is true, but if you doubt it, please call them before you make another donation and ask them what their policy is on donating to people who need help, such as people who have lost everything in a fire. Then if they tell you they can't help you will know not to give your things to them anymore.

My sister house burned this summer. My mom went in there and ask for any ripped or torn clothes they couldn't sell and was told no too. The lady said she could sell them but my mom didn't have the money. Also had a baby bed for 25.00 ask if she could take 22.00. Lady said no. 25.00 . So I believe every word

This is so sorry of not just group of people, but an organization that takes donations from people in the community, but can't help the same people that gave them help in the first place.

Well if I was you I would write a letter to the Batesville guard. Let people know what they told you. So many people believe their donations goes to people in need not just the community school they say.

I will take my things from now on to the woman's shelter. I took several things their after my yard sale and they was nice and Even ask if I wanted a receipt for my taxes. I won't ever give to second time around again.

This is just like what that did to my sister unlawful. After her house flooded we ask for help, that told us the same thing. Its sorry the way they do people, the same ones that keep them in business with there donations. I will take everything I have to the battered womens shelter from now on.
