So many people have donated clothes and other goods to the Salvation Army in the wake of Sunday's tornado that the organization can't accept any more.

"In just two days we've filled two whole semi-trucks with all the food, clothing, diapers, hygiene products, and other items needed by tornado survivors," Darryl Leedom, Twin Cities Salvation Army Commander, said in a statement. "We deeply appreciate the outpouring of support."

That doesn't mean you can't still help.

The organization says it still needs monetary donations to provide survivors with financial assistance, gas cards, food vouchers, and other necessities. Connect with it via its website, calling 800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769), or by sending a check to The Salvation Army, 2445 Prior Ave. N., Roseville, MN 55113. Make sure to designate your gift "metro storm."

Yes, give me ONLY your cash!!!!

The Salvation Army, only has to use about 20% of any one cash donation for charity, to qualify as a "charity". That's just how the laws are written regarding what qualifies as a "charity", and to qualify for partial or full federal tax exemption.  Bigger does not mean "better".  The Red Cross has been consistantly keeping anywhere from 50-70% of it's cash donations to "prepare for future disasters". (from a previous statement form the Red Cross website)

Here is the kicker though-Salvation Army is a HUGE supporter, and lobbyist, of anti-gay legislation.YES people, listen to CityPages, and give some money to help stop the homosexual movement.  What % of every dollar will go towards the gay war?  No one knows, but it is a %.The pro-gay groups, HATE this charity!

Don't believe me?Look it up!

Is CP intentionally leading its college aged, sexually deviated, mush minded readers astray?Usually....Give to the small groups.  Their administrative cost are much lower.  They don't stockpile your money for "future disasters".  Definitely your biggest bang for the buck!
