Not after a local expose on several people who beg daily downtown. One guy made nearly as much as I did at the time. My next door neighbor runs a small food pantry. I donate there and have volunteered my time there. These are people with sincere needs. My uncle's philosophy was that if they ask they must need it more than he. He always kept a separate pocket to hand out. I used to think that way and carry cash for that purpose, but not anymore.
