Mrs. Jessica Lipsky,
As editor, here is what many have comment on and I have pointed out and you as Editor for the Danville area community should seriously consider.
There has been a group which shows up at several store fronts seeking donation.
They call themselves, Crossroads Christian Church, or Crossroads Chrisitan School.
Over time, I have been told that they are but one or two places. I have been told that they are in Vallejo, Antioch, Pittsburg, and today, Sept 11, 2012, I was told that they are in Livermore.
They cant be found in a google search.
I have spoken with roughly 4 or 5 of them and they all provide conflicting information.
I suspect that they are not really genuine in anything but to reach into the kind public's heart and take their money.
As Editor, can you not attempt to search them out to determine how "real" they are?
I highly suspect that there is some kind of fraud going on to pry on the kind hearts of people about.
Perhaps you can put this thought to rest and tell the public that they are genuine.
On Sept. 11, 2012, while at TJ's, Danville, I was told by a cashier that a person had been into the store to speak with the manager informing the manager that they are the Crossroads Church and have nothing to do with that group outside and the police should be called in to investigate the legitimacy of that soliciting group.
Perhaps, as editor you can exercise your journalistic prowess to make some determinations on this group which collects at many TJ's. and Whole Foods, San Ramon.
Thank you for your attention
