One thought on “It’s International Corporate Philanthropy Day! [News, 2.23]”

  1. “The head of the DHHS, Uma Ahluwalia, said her department closely monitored the services offered by Centro Familia and added she believed that ‘the intent of the program was being carried out.'”

    That’s quite a response to such a huge number of missing dollars. I’m not sure I see the connection between missing money and the program’s intent.
