Precautions When Giving Store Check Out Donations

   May 23, 2023

“‘You don’t hear [of] too many situations, especially of a very famous, well-known store being accused of something like this,’ Styron said. ‘It is unusual…but it is certainly a cautionary tale.’”


“‘Instead of waiting to be asked for a donation, go out there and find the causes that are important to you and then make a gift once you have taken the time to vet a particular organization,’ Styron said.”
