Other than the military organizations I prefer to give to Good Samaritans in Waynesville since those donations stay in the local area and help local people!

I used to have such a soft heart for all charities and I would try to give to any charity I could even if it was $10.00 but now I only give to the American Cancer,  local charities and Military charities....

I donated to the disabled Vets until I found out they only got 10 percent of what I was sending.  The rest went toward administrative for working.  I don't donate anymore to anything.

I used to think good samaritan was ok until Walmart gave them 1000 or so childrens winter coats to distribute to those in need and good samaritan took them back to walmart for the cash.

Hi: I'm not sure where that information came from but I can say with utmost certainty this did not happen. If Walmart (or any other large company, for that matter) gives out something like that to a charity, checks are in place so that the charity cannot turn right around and return it. I know that when we give out things through our charity the bar codes are marked through to prevent exactly this.

Further, I'm sure you're more than welcome to call the Good Samaritan and ask this question and they'll let you know for sure that what you've been told is not at all the case :).

more distraction from the real problems. the hole country is getting scammed and yes a certian precentage off all charity money goes into the pockets of those running it. if they didnt get somthing for their time they wouldnt be doing it. because that is the american way.

Not the case for ALL.  I give my time freely with no expectation of anything in return.  I don't even turn in gas receipts for reimbursement.

Hi: Lots of things are talked about, not all of them are true.

Aside from the fact that I cannot see the organization doing this, there is the issue with the feasibility of them even being able to. If you've worked with charities or large companies like this before, you know there are measures in place so that this absolutely cannot happen. When a company donates say, clothing items, the barcodes and garment tags are marked through with a non-washable marker -- this is a barrier to the goods ever being returned for cash. It simply does not happen.

I'm sorry you and apparently others have been misinformed about this great organization. And if you're not willing to call around and check with the organization first hand, you really shouldn't be posting information like that on the web so that those who are also not willing to do their homework will believe it as truth. I'd hate to think that someone got their information so very wrong and that a group so dedicated to helping those less fortunate would suffer for it.
