Rescue Mission:  Do Not Give Money to Panhandlers
Posted October 29th, 2013 @ 4:10am by WOOD Radio News Team

The Holland Rescue Mission's Director has a new mission. Darryl Bartlett tells WOOD TV that he wants to convince people not to give money to beggars.

He says 90 percent of the money that panhandlers get goes to "illicit lifestyle choices" and that there are several organizations that would help homeless people get what they need to change their situations.

He wants you to give a panhandler a card with the address of a helping agency.
