The Triglione Family pays themselves $61,000 a year out of this organization. Why donate to these crooks?

Mission of Deeds stepped up to the plate and allowed me to provide a home run for a young man who lost everything months after Hurricane Katrina devasted his life, home and neighbor's lives. This young man spent three days on his rooftop

I have been donating to the Mission of Deeds for 15 years and have referred many of many friends to it, without anyone ever having a complaint. I have been there as families are there picking up household goods and seen how grateful they are. I'm not sure why "az8284" is upset that his torn couch was rejected - why would any organization distribute goods that are not in good condition? I would highly recommend this organization if you have furniture, kitchen items and linens that you no longer are using - or if you are looking for a place to put in a few volunteer hours!

Pros: all volunteer, helps local people in need

Cons: limited pick up availability

I've volunteered at Mission of Deeds for a year now, and I've seen how powereful a new start can be to families in need. They provide beds, linens, kitchen goods, tables, chairs, sofas, all the basic goods that families might want for a new start in life, all at no charge to the clients.

Clients are referred by various agencies. Most items are donated, and fortunately we live in an area where many very generous people have made it possible for this organization to exist.

This place is wonderful. I've never worked anywhere that has been as inspirational as Mission of Deeds.

AVOID this organization at all costs! I was told by a few people that the gentlemen they send to your house pick through all your things and only take the very best pieces. I just wanted to donate one couch with a couple of torn areas where my cats had gotten at it. It was fine for us for over two years. They told me after I confirmed with Bruce over the phone taht they would take it and use it. The guys get here and see the torn area and they say "oh no we can't use this - our clients are poor but they have pride". Really? So it was good enough for my wife & I and not good enough to give away? I've heard similar odd conclusions being drawn on perfectly good and useful furniture from other people - this organization is either lazy or they just have a strangely inconsistent philsophy as it pertains to giving. I was trying to do the right thing and didn't want so much as a tax write-off form; these guys kept a poor family from having a perfectly good couch. Very odd, strange behavior and extremely disorganized office. AVOID.
