With Homecoming right around the corner, students’ minds are tied to Twitter and Instagram as they anxiously await the time when posts of elaborate proposals begin to roll in.

As winter approaches, the need for coats, mittens, hats, and scarves is rapidly growing. For many, the Salvation Army seems like a selfless company, determined to keep homeless people warm, well fed, and off the streets, but, before donating, take a look at this “helpful” charity’s history.   ...
