In the past, when we were getting rid of some furniture, we called Salvation Army. Now, true, we did get a receipt for our taxes, but I wasn't thrilled with the experience.When I called them to pick up the furniture, I was given the 3rd degree as to the quality of the items, and then they acted as if they were doing me a big favor. Aside from this, it's annoying to me that they then sell these items to others. I'd rather see people who need it get it for nothing.Tony,It used to bother me also that they were selling items to middle income families instead of giving it to the needy.An article in the local paper made me change my thinking. Many of these organizations use these stores to provide jobs or job training to physically and mentally handicapped people.And if you still what the items to go to the needy, many church group distribute the items directly to the needy.
