WTF is wrong with all you loser hoosiers?!? If you don't want to help, fine, but can't you take your garbage posts elsewhere? You're all an embarrassment to this town. Your parents must've repeatedly dropped you on your heads as infants or something!

Don't you dare "people like you" me, Pal! I don't have a dog in this fight and am not really familiar with the place other than the fact that it needs a new roof and is seeking help, and it would appear they are trying to do something positive for the community.

I'm pointing out the ridiculousness of these posts, period. You want to spew garbage? Go for it, but how 'bout starting your own post, and name it "Ravings of a bitter lunatic" or something along those lines so those of looking for actual news don't have to read your crap. Capiche?

And I might add, if you truly do have your "own men, tools and trucks" then why Don't YOU do something to help? Unbelievable. SMH...

Do you even know what this place does? They give food and clothes to people who are useless because 90% of them are able to work and don't they chose to spend their money on drugs and alcohol and cigarettes. Just drive by u will see them out there after they just ate a nice fat meal smoking and hitting the bottle

With all the welfare plans down there in Granite there is no need for this unless the people on welfare sell their entitlement goodies for cash to buy drugs and alcohol

I was just wondering where this is at in Granite. The address is a p.o box address. I used to live there many years ago so I know the town pretty well. Who is the preacher at this place? There's just not enough info in the report to know who is responsible for receiving the donations. And who is behind making sure the donations are being used for what they say they are being used for.

You people should be ashamed of urself. I used to help out at the free store and nothing like that went on when I was there. Its run by two preacher and they do good by helping people get clothes and stuff they need. Its located at the old housers automotive building on Madison ave. All people want to do is bitch and complain grow up not everybody is on welfare who comes there. Some of the people who come there are people who work but don't male that much so they come there so they can get what they need for their family. Is that so wrong taking care of ur family and getting help? Some of u need to grow up and shut up about the free store.
