Scam Alert: Bogus Nonprofit Door-to-Door Solicitations
If someone comes to your door asking for donations for the nonprofit organization Christ's Kitchen, do not give them any money. In fact, you should call the police a report them.
That from the organization, where Executive Director Trish Hastings says the organization would never solicit donations door-to-door. The agency which runs a soup kitchen and provides help for the homeless and other impoverished local residents doesn't solicit monetary donations but, they do accept them via the mail at P.O. Box 3391 Victoria, TX 77903.
Reports have been received of a group of young men attempting to scam residents out of money under the guise of being with the nonprofit group.
Officials say you can report such incidents by calling the Victoria Police non-emergency line at 361-573-3221.
