Elena Tresh FoundationSkimming and Misappropriations

This charity is a huge ripoff. We tried for months to get help from them for my sister's child. The lady on the phone would make promises and have us fill out forms and then never call us back.. We would leave message after message and no one ever called back. The one time we did receive a call, they were asking us to make a contribution. they use the same family as their spokespeople over and over again to raise money. We live near the charity office and when we went to one of the fundraising events, Jenny Tresh was so drunk or high that she couldn't complete a sentence. Her staff rolled their eyes when she would walk away after barking orders like she was a queen. She sure wore flashy clothes (entirely too young and unflattering for a woman of her advanced years and falling figure) for a charity keeper. Talking to other people in the charity community, it became very quickly apparent that she gives small charities a bad name.

    This charity seems to have a lot more complaints than anything else. It sounded like such a good charity and the picture of the sweet little girl who died. Disgusting that the family makes a living off of their poor deceased daughter. We witnessed it ourselves and this "charity" is a complete scam. I guess that is IF they really had a daughter that died. Very tragic that they take money from people who have good intentions.
