Dunbar Marching Band Scam

via the Eckington Listserv
It seems some kid is going around collecting funds for the band, but it seems Dunbar no longer has a band.
I've pretty much gotten cynical when it comes to mealy mouth kids and fund raising. I don't truly believe they are raising money for their school or football team. I may give out of pity or explain that I only give to the kids who live on my block, sorry.
When I want to do charitable giving I have lots of choices and I have a higher preference for those who I can somewhat hold accountable.


Interesting. Several kids have been hitting our house and others on our block for at least 3 years asking for donations for the Dunbar Marching Band. They always have clipboards and sign-up sheets, and when I've asked them what instruments they play they always have a ready answer. Sad, if it's all been a scam.

Although Dunbar's website still shows marching band as an activity: http://www.dunbardc.com/teams.html
