reported: I seriously doubt there is a food shortage in OK. It's been well publicized that the best way to help with disaster relief is to donate money to reputable, local charities. Sending bulk amounts of food/clothing/etc. just creates more work for the local authorities who have to store, sort, and distribute stuff that may be inappropriate or already in excess supply. This sounds like a church group and their associates trying to offload a bunch of unsold/expired goods for a tax write-off and publicity.
Lenny_da_Hog: This is why you leave disaster relief -- and your donations -- in the hands of professionals like the Red Cross, and not in the hands of religious ministries.If these amateurs would have had any sense, they would have checked the logistics of shipping goods across an international border and realized sending cash donations to the Red Cross was more efficient and effective.
ArcadianRefugee: Is this one of those threads where, just because "it's to help people!!" we should ignore all of our rules and regulations?
brantgoose: Don't worry.Instead of fighting global warming, Harper will just send you more CARE packages.How are you fixed for hockey sticks? You can build houses out of them. That's what the builders are using instead of 2x4s now.
