‘Homeless’ Group Shut Down

June 24, 2010 Leave a comment

The State Supreme Court has shut down The United Homeless Organization, the group you would see with the inverted water jugs asking for money for the homeless. I don’t recall ever seeing them in Forest Hills (which makes me think, what ever happened to that “ANIMAL RIGHTS!” lady?), but they were certainly all over Manhattan for many years. Apparently, they were not giving the money they collected in those jugs to the homeless. I think most New Yorkers probably figured as much. After all, you kinda thought a legit charity would’ve come up with a more trustworthy looking container than an inverted water jug after all these years. Didn’t ya?
