Is Quakeville open to residents of nearby communities?

It is interesting to watch the Red Cross activities. Aren't they the ones who collected several hundreds of million dollars of donations
when a quake hit Haiti? And isn't it true that these donations never really made it to Haiti?
It is more interesting that this morning, about a dozen homeless guys
were told to hurry up by the janitors, who were instructed to close up the showers at 7 a.m. instead of 8 a.m. It seems that the red cross does not want actual "homeless" persons lingering around
while the great citizens of the area are "pretending to be homeless"
all for the sake of giving the red cross the positive Public relations
blitz that they so deserve to have by a naive news media!
And I would like to know where the red cross has been with those 100 cots for the past 6 years? The homeless people at Cubberly don't have even 1 cot, but this is alright because after all, the homeless
have all made their own demise happen.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
