New Leader at Salvation Army Gives Advice for Dealing with Panhandlers

Facebook

Major Tim Grider was recently assigned to the Salvation Army in Lubbock.  In an interview for this station’s the public service program, This Week in Lubbock, Grider was asked about the best way to deal with panhandlers.  His response:

“When we just give money to someone who’s standing there with a sign, does anyone stick around long enough to see what happens with the money?  This is what you should do.  Say, ‘Instead of giving you money, how about I buy you a meal.’  Or, direct them to an agency in the area who has the resources.  Every day we feed.  Every day we shelter.  And there are other agencies besides us that does this.”

You can hear the entire interview at 6 a.m.  this Sunday on KFYO.
