A recent study by BMO Private Bank found that wealthy Missourians will individually donate less than the national average in 2013. Despite this, the study also found that the donations are on the rise.
A Missouri man was accused of stealing donation displays that collect money for the Children’s Miracle Network. The man stole the money from places in Lee Summit, a town in western Missouri.
A woman from Lexington, Mo., a small town east of Kansas City, reported in a Letter to the Editor that members of a charity in Missouri took off the price tags of donated clothing and wore the clothes themselves. She encouraged readers to follow up on donations to avoid this situation in the future.
