profmom Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 I'm not sure what I should do. I want to help, but I've heard not to give money (in case there's a drug or alcohol addiction -- I have no idea how prevalent that might be!) Once I went through a drive thru and handed a man food. He seemed disappointed and said he was trying to gather funds to move to CA where he could receive bigger government checks. Here's a related question -- what do you do when people walk up and ask for money? They often seem to say they need it for a bus ticket for an important reason. In these cases, I have given money ($5 to $10 -- about what I carry in my purse), even if I didn't know whether to believe them or not. I want to help people who truly need help, but I'm not sure what to do in the above situations. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
