Rescue Encore LLC started this petition to Purple Heart Foundation and

Rescue Encore offers low-cost Pet First Aid & CPR certification to the public and we use all of our income to train Police Officers, Firefighters, and EMS personnel at no cost to themselves or the department.  Our Pet First Aid & CPR training supplies were stolen by Purple Heart Foundation's contracted service providers, GreenDrop, on December 12, 2019. Instead of taking two labeled bags of clothing donations, their driver unlawfully removed the training supplies from our property.  They refuse to admit any wrong-doing even though we have presented them with video footage of the items being removed from our property. When questioned more than three weeks later, their driver lied and said that we left all of our valuable training supplies outside on the cold, wet driveway instead of inside of our climate-controlled garage.  Written instructions provided when donors schedule a pickup state that UNLABELED ITEMS WILL NOT BE PICKED UP.

GREENDROP ADMITS THAT THE DRIVER TOOK ITEMS THAT WERE NOT LABELED FOR DONATION.  They also admit that they removed four bags from our property when the scheduled donation indicated 1-3 bags would be ready for pickup.

They refuse to reimburse us for the cost of the training supplies, stating that "donations aren't usually labeled anyway."  When asked for contact information of their General Counsel's office, so that we may forward a police report for review, a supervisor named Brenda hung up the phone.

Our pet rescue classes are taught by highly trained EMS instructors that volunteer their time because we believe that our pets are our family members.  We are registered as a for-profit training organization, but our budget operates as a non-profit.  We cannot replace these supplies without asking for donations, and we do not feel that it is appropriate for the public to pay the bill when GreenDrop has already admitted that they removed four bags of training supplies, NOT MARKED FOR DONATION, from our property.

People supporting this petition believe that The Purple Heart Foundation and their contracted GreenDrop collectors need to reimburse Rescue Encore LLC for the cost of the stolen property, $712.63.

For more detailed information, including a photo of the items being carried off our property, please visit the review posted on Facebook by Rescue Encore's owner, Mark Driscoll.

GreenDrop is contracted by American Red Cross, Purple Heart Foundation, National Federation of the Blind, and St. Vincent de Paul to pick up charitable clothing donations.

TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD:
Call GreenDrop at 888-944-3767, Option 2 and tell the manager, Brad Kennard, that you will not support GreenDrop's organizations until they reimburse Rescue Encore for the stolen training materials that their driver took.
