I see people standing at corners asking for money because they are homeless, car broke down or even a divorcee trying to get a new start.
I have seen some of the people claiming problems in mini-marts getting pop and candy.
If I ever found myself at a place in my life that I would have to stand on a corner asking for money, pop and candy would be the last thing on my list to get.
So how do you really know who needs help and who is out there scamming people?
I work hard for my money, like most people do. I feel really sad seeing these people out there for hours. When they have kids with them, oh my, it hurts my heart. I have given people money before and even doughnuts.
When you see the same people over and over again standing there, it makes you wonder. Are they really in need? I know these are hard times and a lot of people are out of work. I am sure that the homeless mission is full most of the time and Helpline gets calls nonstop from people needing help.
So again, how do we know who really needs help and who is scamming?
