I have a great concern about what is happening within the two major public service non-profit companies (The Salvation Army, and Goodwill) here in Memphis. I use to give all my donations to these two organizations until I realized the outrageous prices these organizations are putting on the goods donated. I first noticed these awful acts in 2005 when my husband accidentally took my daughters bike to Salvation Army by mistake. I went back to the company thinking they couldn't have priced the bike, which was over 3 years old, for much, however, to my surprise it was priced for more than I originally paid for it new. Needless to say, I just left the bike there and bought her a new one. I have recently noticed that these places, which I believed existed to help those individuals who were less fortunate obtain reasonably decent goods at affordable prices, take the goods that we donate for free,turn around and charge the people we all try to help crazy unaffordable prices. I can't believe that these entities can serious think they are helping anyone when those in need can only afford to purchase a child's shirt because everything else is over priced. With the funds they collected off their donated goods their Christmas Kettle should never be below $300,000. Lol.I seriously hope that maybe you can help the less than middle class citizens on this matter. At leasest then I want feel like I'm only helping fill the pockets of another 'big wig' hiding behind the name of The Salvation Army, and Goodwill when I donate to the red kettle.
