People are always asking stores for donations

I worked the winter season in Breckenridge in 1997 and have worked the years since in resorts from North Carolina to Maine and Hawaii to Alaska.

This past season, I returned to Breckenridge to work. The one thing that seems to set Breck apart from all of the other places I have worked is the massive amount of fundraising that goes on.

I did not work one week this year that at least two or three people didn’t come looking for a donation.

All of the causes were good but the funny thing is my manager said the people asking for donations rarely ever did business with her.

I think that if people want donations they should come in holding at least a dozen receipts from the store they are hitting up to show they support that business.
