I wonder if anyone can tell me how PLCA picks the charities we allegedly sponsor? I say allegedly, because the charities they claim we all support, I don’t. I’m not a fan of Habitat, as they never seem to build homes for the folks I consider most deserving, and that is our wounded or disabled veterans and their families. There is also too little info available on the homes they have given to people, and what became of those homes and people.
The United Way is an organization I’ve long had suspicions about. They have huge executive salaries, and it’s almost like giving to the federal government. You never know where the money goes…
Why doesn’t the Board ask for nominations from the people, via the website for charities we can all get behind? Every five years seems a good time frame for voting for those charities on the nominations list, and the list can stay active. The three charities with the most votes get the nod for PLCA sponsorship and one of the charities should always be local. I’d like to see the Naples Women’s Shelter up there, as well as the Wounded Warriors.
Anyone else share my concerns?
