Make Sure You're Giving To Reputable Charities

It is the season for giving, but you need to make sure that before you give, you know exactly where the money is going.

Unfortunately, some people take advantage of the holiday season.

But with reputable organizations like the Salvation Army, you know most of the money you give stays locally. So, before you give this holiday season, make sure you ask yourself some important questions.

Capt. Lola Maldonado, of the Salvation Army, said, "You need to ask 'How long has this organization been here,' and 'How much money stays locally.'"

Since the Salvation Army will not be having their yearly Thanksgiving feast. Monday they were busy handing out debit cards to families, so that they can buy a Thanksgiving dinner.
