Washington charity misleads

I want people to know that the Washington “charity” Search & Rescue Charities has no connection to Placer County Sheriff Search & Rescue despite their using an Auburn mailing address and soliciting in the area. I make a yearly donation to Placer County Sheriff Search & Rescue because I admire their dedicated volunteers and think it’s important they stay well equipped for community needs. Katrina Kane of Placer County Sheriff Search & Rescue confirmed that this Washington organization has no connection to them and has made no contribution to their group. I am concerned that Placer County Sheriff Search & Rescue is losing much-needed funds because people are being misdirected. In this time when we have fewer dollars for our charity donations, it is very important to make sure they go to the reputable organizations we intend them to. Alice Clark, Auburn
