Our church used to occasionally drop off food, feed meals there and such but I now see only a fraction of these donations make it to the homeless or needy. When food or items are donated I found out first hand that the staff there and their families go through it like vultures, then what they dont like or is too old they feed to the homeless there.
I also found out that the United Way, State and Federal goverments pay them to feed the homeless. I have talked to a few of the homeless people that stay there and they said if it was not for churches bringing food they wouldnt have nothing to eat.
This is a horrible misuse and mismanagment of funds by Donohoo and the rest out there. I would assume none of them even buys groceries, they just pilfer the stock they get grants to pay for. And then pilfer and get first picks from all donated food.
I do believe there are some lazy people at the shelter who do not want to work but there is a majority of either mentally ill people or people really in a bad spot.
Our church has cut off donations to the shelter after a dinner we dropped off did not even make it to the homeless but go straight out the back door while the residents ate leftovers from the previous week. Also 10 2 liters of coke went out the backdoor as well.
Not like any of you care about the homeless but me and my church do and I am just letting you know out taxpaying dollars set aside for that shelter are not being used in the proper way, probably imbezzled and that the staff are all corrupt who no doubt only take that job for the free food, easy pay and kickbacks.

Who Needs to Investigate This Abuse of the Homeless People?
