Gee, the staff and administrators must not have enough take-home pay to buy everything their families want. I've been in and out of shelters for a while, and the theft of donations intended for the residents and other poor, especially the nice, new things, more than not wind up in the trunks of the people who are working there. It's sad, but I know it from experience, and it's not just a few, those places are rife with this kind of crap. Sharon preacherman said it right: "You have to give to the greedy to get to the needy". Ain't it the truth?

I just wish they would make anyone working in a shelter-type program take a few classes in ethics, morality, and conflict of interest sujects. Then a few outling the criminal codes for theft, etc.
