Description

The National Kidney Foundation of Ohio sends trucks into Central Ohio neighborhoods to collect used clothes and household items. People who donate their belongings belived that they were going directly to the Kidney Foundation. But the WBNS-TV investigation found that the entire operation was run by a for-profit thrift store operation, and it turns out the Kidney Foundation charity only received 90 cents for the entire donation from each household pickup.
