I want to know how I can sign up. I am worried about my Christmas for my family due to roommate issues. Since August I have had problems with roommate that does not pay even when my husband lost his job for two months and I am disabled. I have put things on layaway; however, due to the high rent and utilities, and cost of food, I have been unable to pick the items up. Please let me know what I can do to get the assistance I need. Thank you.

Sal(i)vation Army treats the poor like crap-all their locations do it (I call them "Salivation Army" because they "salivate" at the thought of abusing the poor). But a person would only notice it if they tried to use them for help more than once. They verbally abuse people & half the time the poor person walks away with no help (even though you sat through their abusive, hostile mouths).

They abuse with such frequency that I can't list them all-not enough room in this post to fit it all. So, I'll give one example :

Poor person: I need some food help.(said in a friendly way)

Salivation Army staff person : Why should I help YOU?! Because you're poor?! I hate poor people. Fuck off and die.

If you want to help poor people, find someone in need & give it to them DIRECTLY - otherwise *this* is what your money is paying for, ABUSES.

Btw, I speak from many personal experiences. What you just read happened to me and my family & these experiences stretch out over years.

Not you again!

Stretches out over YEARS?????
The Salvation Army offers a hand up. You're supposed to get better. There's only so much to go around and it appears you have collected your share so they said no.

WAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Man up and take care of your own family already.
