I don't know why Giant selected this area. This area is not where people can truly afford to give - but they do. I live here, I know. Giant would do more people, more good, if they parked a truck in Mitchellvile or Largo. Where the county's highest net income resides! (Giant you can DROP off a delivery back here in Hyattsville. I, for one, would be truly greatful!) This, once again, proves people who don't have it, are kind in remembering those who are worse off then themselves.

many of us in this area -- hyattsville, university park, college park, etc. -- can indeed truly afford to give, and many do give generously. there are plenty of needy people in largo, and plenty of well-off people in hyattsville.
