  1. I remember hearing about when cities were actually communities where local mom and pop grocers would help and @ssist their less fortunate in the community because they knew the majority in the community so there was a personal relationship within the community. Nowadays everything is corporatized and marketed to maximize their profit. The owners of these corporations do not live within the community, they typically don’t even live within the state. They are removed from the community so their corporation doesn’t have to act as a part of every community where their sales hubs are located. If the corporation can’t get a tax write-off for the donation(s) they don’t donate, they would rather simply throw away the product as waste. Corporations are killing communities and the killing of mom and pop businesses. We are no longer a community because we are only working as a cog in the gearbox and are simply replicable, simply because of the way corporations operate.

  2. What do they need donations for? There are no needy or hungry people here. My employer is trying desperately to fill good positions with benefits and can’t get a single applicant. Get those lazy people back to work and stop handing out free stuff. We have to do the job of 2 or 3 people bacause they don’t want to work. Let them starve for a while.
