This is Apogee Retail LLC, a for-profit "Charity Collection" company. *They are not a charity.*

They sell the items they collect in for-profit "thrift" stores. Don't fall for their scam. If you listen to the entire pitch they give you, they mention their name towards the end of the call.

Sublimely satisfying when I check my call logs and realize these people get blocked every time!

This is the national child center pickup to certify that you don't know how to donate on your own, yes? Terds!

That's right, Orzo resells what is allegedly donated for charity, for their own ends.

This company has called me before and I have asked them to remove me. They do not. They let it ring 3 times. Shows as unavailable. They call on a Sunday evening.

True charities are failing left and right and here we have a for-profit outfit milking those trying to improve things for the less fortunate.

I have NEVER made a donation to them, and I have very politely asked these folks repeatedly to remove me from their calling list. They still call.

They call and hang up after 3 rings. Guess you better run to the phone when an UNAVAILABLE a-s-s-h-a-t calls.

NCC has a load of phone numbers they call from. It is a shame that they don't put NCC so it shows on caller i.d.
I have donated to them before but only when NCC shows up on caller i.d. They should know by now that it has gotten
to the point that people do not answer their phones when a name does not show up on i.d.
