Charitable Giving- Donator Beware

During the past few years, the Give Hunger the Boot program has helped raise over $350,000 in food and financial donations for the Southeast Gwinnett Food Co-Op.

That willingness is the foundation upon which charity organizations are built. But not all charities are as “charitable” as they appear.
