Letters to the Editor

Fundraising fury

Re: ‘Fundraising Alert’ letter in the Sept. 24 edition of The NEWS.

I agree with letter writer Barrie Donaldson 100 per cent. I have the same problem.

After donating to various organizations, I also have been flooded with cards, envelopes, calendars etc.

I have been sending them back in the mail, but I was told that Canada Post just throws them out.

I am so frustrated by this that I am not donating anymore — just to local causes.
