This will probally rub people the wrong way but
I for one am tired of the "cram the van" campaign
every year. It does have it's use in helping truly
poor parents in getting their children school supplies,but the same people line up year,after year..come on people,you have 12 month's to save
for school items,it's not like you did'nt know it was coming lol..I understand hard times,but EVERY
YEAR you need school supplies?? Me think's some
parents choose not to buy their own,knowing someone else will...come on,folders are .10,pencils,10/$1 .$100 would more than cover
any child's supplies,that's less than $10.00 a month per child..I'm not talking about clothes,or shoes,I realize their expensive,but a few school supplies? the user's need to pull some of thei own weight and quit waiting for Sandy santa claus.

I understand the point of those that do it every year. I ususally donate. But this year I will be asking for help. I just got custody of 3 more kids, putting me at 4. 3 of which will be attending school, I think its a good program for those of us that will be needing the help.

I cannot say that I am tired of Cram the Van, cause then I would be saying that I am tired of every free program there is for people that truely do not need it to take advantage of, mainly the Government assistance program. I believe this program CTVan helps some children, but if the parents can buy cigarettes and/or beer and/or any un needed things then they can afford school supplies for their children. There is way too many people taking advantage of programs meant for people that truely need help. If you are driving a new or expensive car then you have NO bussiness getting food stamps. Just because something in your life is free, does not mean that it is for you. Know the difference between wants and needs in your life. Never confuse the two.
