I read a statement a a Facebook acct about the use of food stamps traded for bingo cards, not sure what bingo hall would do this, for one thing I don't think you can deposit food stamps in the bank acct, plus I also thought food stamp users have a debit card. But my point to be made, if this person is who I thing it is should watch what is said . I know for certain and can prove a family member is receiving food stamps/gov't checks illegal. And it is just a matter of time, until this information will come to surface. This person also misused money collected to use for helping families at Christmas time, although it has been stated that she helped over 40 people, what about the money used for her own personal Christmas gifts. There was a few g'kids that had a very nice Christmas. Need to give the credit to the watch dogs that are watching,

Do you not know the saying " a wolf in sheep clothing" When a person can take money from people
And will not tell you who it is for. Talked with a woman who was going to donate, she wanted to know who it would be helping, she would not give name, but did give address turned out address was a CLOSE family member. What I am saying-Can you account for every charity funds that was collected, and how many laptops, I pods, video games did you purchase. I think every child would have liked these kind of gifts, but not all got them. The best organization to donate your money to for a charity would be Shop With A Cop. At least, all children will get treated equally. Every child gets $100. To spend, one doesn't get more than the other, You tell me why did some of your families that you helped received more expensive gifts than the others. These is what is wrong with this, the price of the gifts and who got them.

whatever, unless you shopped with her family members, you have not seen shit. Unless you are as ruthless as her. If you work at BP don't you ever question where money comes from buying all those scratches. This is not the only store that gets visited on daily basis. Personally, I could care less, if she has taken any money from you, but I guess I can see how you would like her, if she helped with your Christmas, but did she spend over $500. Per child for you. There are so many conversations about her, wonder why she went to BP, after she was told not to go back to talk of town. Like I said before, put your charity dollars to shop with a cop, then YOU will know where your money went, AND all children are treated equally, and I also think using that charity money and buying for older teenagers/and early twenty year old that is out of school is wrong, Also if your child/children was able to shop with a cop, I would also call that a little greedy, wouldn't you. Taking money from 2 charities. And if this is the case then you are as bad as she is. You have a lot to learn like I said before "a wolf in sheep clothing"

This comment is for downdown-er. To begin with, I doubt that any of the money donated was donated by you.Its easy to judge when you are doing nothing but critisizing someone else. Lets say this woman did collect money for charity and only helped 5 families, instead of 40. Of the 5 families, lets say 2 were related to her and she spent 40% on these 2 families. Thats still 3 families that may not have had any Christmas had it not been for this person. She still helped someone. What have you done for anyone other then you lately? Maybe you are the wolf in sheep clothing.

actually people would be quite surprised at what I do, when information is surfaced, then it is time to do a little investagation- and after checking with several organizations, and a few local business, this type of charity needs to be carefully monitored. If these 3 families have school age or younger, and went to. Shop with a cop, why would she be helping them they have already received Christmas charity, plus churches also offer food baskets this time of year so actually no individual should be collecting money without an organizations support. And as for your calculation at collecting over $5,000. That would mean family members got $3,000.spent on them, and the other families would have 2,000. Spent on them, but getting realistic its not the idea helping over 40 families, if that is true it was how the per centage on each was spent some had only 50. Spent, others as much as $500. Shop with a cop each child is given $100. Dollars to spend, they are all treated equal-for the low income families, this is one charity I Do give to because ALL children are treated equally do you know the ages of the gr'kids. And you are right, I did at one time helped with this charity. But not any more, this is one fundraiser that I will not help to support a gambling frenzy. Maybe you don't realize the whole situation, don't know and don't care I will encourage people to donate to shop with a cop ALL CHILDREN should be treated equally and I did say children not out of school teenagers and young adults in their 20 s.

shop with a cop has fund raisers, raffles, and several organizations, banks, that donate all the money is used for children at Christmas, not one child gets anymore than another. They help as many as possible so if collect $5,000. That alone helps 50 kids equally, but when school bus loads of kids are taken to Walmart from all the county schools, you know this is one charity that people trust. They also have a makeup day for students that were absent on original shopping day. Actually, with so much scamming going on in the world, why would anyone give their money to an individual and not know what it was used for. Shop with a cop serves the WHOLE county, not just a few chosen friends/family in this area.

Or the little boy that ask only for a bed for Christmas because he didnt have one..And she seen that he got his bed for Christmas.Or all the baking that she did to raise money to help these Families..I have no little kids,,,And I really enjoyed this past Christmas helping her and seeing all the Families that she was helping..

I did not say that people was not helped, yes this is TRUE about the family members this information came from none other than some family. And I don't think a person will admit to anybody if funds have been mismanaged. I'm not trying to stop anyone that abides this fund raiser, go ahead donate your time/money but you should realize where the funds are going.
If you are the lucky one that is receiving the charity more power to you, but if you are the one donating/working the charity, maybe you need to keep better record of where ALL the funds are going, if not just be part of it.

yes I read about that in paper . Sorry for his loss, and I do think other organizations helped him also, like I already stated some got helped, don't care how many, No individual should be doing fund raisers, without someone else managing all of the funds. Time will tell, and it is just a matter of time when it starts talking. When this happens, just remember what was stated on here. And I think the bed issue was from a family of BP (a place where is frequently visits for gambling purpose,) It once was talk of the town, until they wised up. But like stated time will tell. No one is telling you what to do, spend your money/time however you choose, but most people DO like to know what is going on now, and not find out later down the road

no I am not saying that, do not put words in my mouth-I have tried to tell you the story, like I said when this all comes out, remember these conversations. There IS family members who knows what is happening, what I have told you is the truth, believe it or not I personally could care less, if you donated your time/money that is your fault. Next Christmas see how many places that support this so-called fund raiser. Several citizens have already got their eyes opened.r

Don't know what talk of town are saying about her, I do not go there, but I do know they will not let her leave cans over there, for her charity this came from family member, and a friend that I use to work with. But now, I do not go into BP either, but I do know she buys several lotto tickets from there, from family member and seeing her truck their every morning, but that is getting off the subject, she can spend every dime she has that is her business, but when she misleads people that donate to her fund raiser, that is wrong, whether you accept that or not. Do you not think all children should be equal, or would you pick/choose who you wanted to have better presents? I think all children should be equal, and I am talking about children (school age/younger) why would presents for older teenagers, and early twenties be considered in thses Christmas fund. Like I said before, time will tell you can defend her all you want, but the truth will come out.
