they dont give their junk out to help ppl they give it for the write offs . the churches that give to the ministerial association does it for the tax write offs who would put evelyn delong over helping ppl when she is nothing but a bitch to everyone?? the stuff thats given at the food panty 98% of the time isnt edible..especially for kids. I dont go there but ive seen stuff they give out and ive thrown out better stuff! the thrift store is a big joke and if u go to the food pantry try to find a reason to see someone in the last part of the building .they had walls of paper towels,toilet paper etc that is never given out. that part of the pantry must be for moons friends and family. I also agree they look down on ppl and at the same time they put a smile on and try to act compassionate.

well it is plane to see that you have not volunteered your time over there. it is a top notch program and Moon and the others work hard. sounds like sour grapes because you did not get your handout given to you. You should be thankful for anything you get for nothing instead of complaining. if you want better get out and get a job and work like the rest of us.

churches are not taxed so your statement is not true

The first time I took clothing items there for donation, I began to unload my vehicle and set the things down outside,(where that shopping cart is and the containers are) so that people could look through the items if they wanted. The tall blondish haired lady saw me, and yelled No I couldn't do that. She said everything that gets brought there HAS to go to the inside first, before it is put outside. I complied that time. But, from then til now, every time I know I'm going to be in that area on the pantry days (Tue & Fri) and have items for donation, I bag up one or two FC sized bags,leave the tops untied and walk up to that shopping cart and dump the items in and walk away.
No idea why she "demanded" they be brought to the inside first. If they are meant for the people why not let the people see them. If she had concerns about the cleanliness of the items all she had to do was inspect the bags as I was getting them out..Every single item I donate is freshly washed with Gain and dryer dried with fabric sheet for fluffiness.

Now how do you know that that person doesn't have a job? What makes you so sure the person doesn't work "like the rest of us"?
Many are living below the poverty level, struggling to survive and they DO WORK, sometimes more than one job.

some do you are correct but many or just too lazy to get a job and expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.

I go in there from time to time just to sooth the wild beast inside of me (that craves yard sales, thrift store, antique shops) I've listened to the ladies in the back.

"Oh, will this look good on me?"

"This is expensive stuff. Put this in my pile."

You can deny it. I've seen it myself. They also play favors to people they like.

I seen a woman ask how much for a set of braided rugs...$10 for her and she sat it back down. Another lady asked after several minutes of talking to the woman..it was sold to her for $3...

I have also been to the thrift store part several times and I have donated over there several times and EVERYTIME I have donated they have went through the stuff while I was in there looking around and kept some of it for themselves.

In fact just this past month at the beginning of January I was in there and someone had brought some stuff in and I wanted to look through the box that was brought in and they said just a minute and they stood there and went through it and kept over half of it for themselves.

I think the way it should work is it should be put out and priced and everyone should be able to pay the same price as the next person.
If they want some of the stuff they should wait till their day off or the end of the day and they should have to pay for the items just like everyone else.

My mother passed away couple of years ago and we were getting her house ready to sale so we bagged up several bags of my mothers things and took them over there. My mother always dressed nice and took very good care of her stuff. The next day, my sister drove by and saw bags in the dumpster that looked like what came from my mothers so she stopped and got out to investigate...they were my mothers clothes. Still bagged.. she couldnt stand to see my mom's things in the dumpster so she fished them out and brung them back to her house. How could they do that... because when you go in there to shop there is never any good stuff on the shelves.

That was so very wrong. I could only imagine how that girl must have felt. Bless her heart.

The complaint isn't about people "expecting everything to be handed to them on a silver platter". It's about mis-appropriation of donations. When people gather up bag-fulls and box-loads of donation items.....I'm pretty sure they don't take those to the pantry and tell the volunteers "Here ya go these things are for you. Pick out all that you want FIRST, then if there's anything left toss it out the door to the poor".
