The True Friends Board decided to discontinue our used goods donation program with Savers/Apogee. True Friends was one of six charities identified in a MN Attorney General news release last week that stated Savers practices did not follow donor intent, transparency and compliance. In swift action by the board, True Friends severed ties with Savers. “While the revenue was an important source of funds for True Friends, sometimes decisions need to go beyond dollars and be defined by principle,” said President & CEO Ed Stracke.
