Kars4kids Applauds NY State Car-Donation Investigation


kars4kidsNY State Attorney General filed a lawsuit seeking to shut down Feed the Hungry and announced an industry-wide investigation of car-donation charities.

“Kars4Kids applauds the gubernatorial candidate’s investigation,” said Yehudah Meth, a spokesman for the national not-for-profit organization. “Indeed, we think it’s long overdue. The Attorney General’s office is doing its job. The end result will be the elimination of illegitimate organizations who give a bad name to the car-donation process.

The investigation didn’t come as news to Kars4Kids-only the press release lumping it, unfairly, with other organizations.

“Kars4Kids was served nearly half a year ago, on January 13, 2010, and we fully cooperated with the investigation,” said Meth. “We gave the Attorney General’s office everything they asked for and we expect that will be the end of it.”

As a result of the Attorney General’s investigation, a lawsuit was filed charging that Nicholas Cascone, Jr., the director of “Feed the Hungry, Inc.” (“FTH”), solicited vehicle donations that were supposed to fund humanitarian causes and then kept the proceeds to enrich himself.Kars4Kids has received no notification of a lawsuit or any further actions.
