"Problem you know the ones are you could start managed properly can turn into depression it could be the worst things and so they're really hurt people to use telemedicine to talk to people find a therapist knows all the things you would do an internal situation not normal harms in some part people need to make some pretty tough choices that they've never done before such as mental health treatment now is a good part of your diet if you are you're something you're feeling on a constant basis every day I would we would we encourage people to not let it go sharks sharks who can help now yeah yeah and it is wonderful of your staff by the way for what they're doing I went to the grocery store yesterday and I was thinking how wonderful and brave it was for everybody who was working there and what they were doing so that I could go in and shop so it's much appreciated but it does bring that anxiety as well for the for the people who are there shopping so are you using methods of spacing them out as they go in that kind of thing yeah we're doing what you see a lot of value we we put more people on the floor we trust people six extra parts yeah we lost people to step back from some of the the check in counters and we've actually created Berrier so they have to stay a certain distance away we have not gotten to the point where we need to limit traffic inside the store naturally slow down a little bit but it is certain point but if we get to a place with a killing people is going to we want to help people with all sides come in one time but so far no we always heard the news shorter hours a little bit so now we're open from nine to six Monday to Saturday and then open from eleven to four on Sunday and we're doing that at all we have our state one campus and we just allows us to look at what time in the morning to clean socks the staff don't have to be here the staff with the doing out there coming in at six in the morning leaving at hand and then calling back again at five in the afternoon yeah what ships are really really tough for doing an amazing job with I'm just really proud of how much effort they put into it and just couldn't ask for better people know they sound amazing for sure the folks that are coming in and doing the shopping is one thing how are you doing this sort of consulting to help people you know fill out the unemployment forms and that kind of thing is this is that's a different section correct yes so we're you know we have just another part of the building on the reporters are Michael Richmond center the caller crisis center and we are in the computer lab there we had to spread out the computers a little bit so there's all the distancing of corporate above a large flat screen to do since he came from a little bit from a distance two people using a computer lab people are able to use the phones there are of course if the cleaners down every time someone in charge of the we're trying to do as much as we can remotely you can call in to make an appointment the teleconference with them as well so we work well we're shifting complains you know we go to a small group of people there but they're doing incredible work and they've been finding new and creative ways to help people every single day I'm always amazed at the new techniques for finding and when you're able to answer questions quickly here's something I've been wondering about and you know I don't know if you want to go there but I'm just curious about how all of you service agencies and nonprofits are still out there doing so much wind Hey you can you can have your fundraisers and that kind of thing so how are you keeping it all together I think that organizations that were organized to begin once are going to do very well during this time an organization that works are gonna really suffer and you're right now I'm very proud of our organization really good system here and what's happened is we've actually had an increase in donations from people are nothing major but we actually know we are our goals for March we're almost ready to hit our goals for April and the cost of so you know we we're we're seeing people reach out to us it might norm normally wait till the end of the year contribution and they're not doing that and dance we'll call you to check in with our own donors and volunteers how they're doing and I think that the relationship that we have with people all going for so many years that they understand the need and without even having to ask where we're getting people to step up to the plate and those people that twenty five dollar contribution they're making hundred dollars right now the people in order to thousand dollar contribution again five dot com right now and every time I get one of these on board some waters in art art art Europe a little bit it's just so amazing during this time of the federal court everybody you have people willing to step up and expand the company's consolidations your current or former biggest partners complete care has really stepped up for us we've had some amazing work from some of our partner because your family and that's really where the majority of its comparable individual people and I think that when you have charitable organizations that rely on individuals that's where they're gonna have support I will let people know that they can go online to United against poverty dot org to learn more about you and maybe make that kind of a contribution what about your volunteers again you can have as many volunteers so how are you making do with that well you know we have a program where you know groups think about volunteer but all the mechanical and for obvious reasons I don't think they feel safe and clean environment and but we are individuals of state volunteering cedar knolls that will come out on their own and in concert with it we have a lot of volunteers that are on the house floor court mandated service reporter in mobile no offense is where the heart goes on to our service and many of them are coming up you know that we're going now we have a little part of they were laid off so but that that will run out of time and we're gonna have to start doing a call asking people to consider coming on volunteering opens a stocking the shelves and bagging groceries and stuff because about sixty to seventy employees our grocery list and so we're we're really relying on volunteers but the scope of work why don't you go ahead and let people know in addition to the things we talked about anything you'd like them to know about your mission and how things are going right now and maybe even share story if you will your mission is to help inspire and empower them with some of those cells from place of poverty health officials said you know we want to put ourselves out of the that's ideal for all organizations for work you know our our model years upon her hand up as opposed to a hand out that's why we ask for a truly giving process so we don't give it away for free where I think it would make a small contribution for it it's a very small contribution but I need a call because we created a greeting card process for everybody and that's what we have over thirty five thousand members that are part of this program I think that it's you know we're trying to do is also partner with every other social service agencies in communities where we can help right now when you're done donation site anybody that wants to donate clean bars supporting the homeless shelters in the we have some really good ones coalition for the homeless in downtown Orlando you're reading rescue mission in men and women's programs on television are harbor house the program is also current Stanford the rescue mission there all the needs of both of those things cleaned up by the results of the mother working twenty four hour operations there so we have a base on the part of people donated cleaning supplies here everything composed rags bottles and spray bottles and whatnot we got those down to the shelter but we haven't seen as much of a donation that regards I think that could cause a lot of people holding on to their stuff understandably birds we we do need more donations for the shelters are not part of our mission as an organization is to be a computer to try and help other nonprofit organization before the United United will probably come from we're just trying to help out wherever they are and make sure that we can provide some type of service or support every social service agencies in the community somehow helping low income individuals what are you hearing from those individuals what stories have you heard from them about their situation right now a lot of people unfortunately are being laid off you know they're in good spirits in there there you're staying with their families they're taking care of themselves the people that I worry about are the ones that are already on the streets the shelters are pretty full and we have a woman here all all all all color Valerie for me you know she doesn't have anywhere to go and so she's been coming out you are sitting on a on a park bench here during the day she's been trying to volunteer and consumers who are she works with the buy orange for us which is harder than here in your your your personal appearance of bush's solutions where we would go to the basket for we're trying to help her everywhere we can't are you talking about are the story of one day people who it usually has a chronic illness and that's the case with our arms they are struggling to make a decision on the moving a lot of support sometimes chronic illness the physical many times mental sometimes in social disappears but usually the Clintons and severe mental illness and the market is in terms of people between everyone wants a current and support there's a lot of also support groups out there our whole synonymous for cardinals groups and you know we have been supportive of those groups in the past but many of them are lacking a place right now in the in the gathering processing and I think that you know everybody's going to come up with new ways to do that whether it's the teleconference or you know find spaces working spread out with a hundred people so we're we're getting over a cold about about that as well you're not gonna be able to your drive all the way over from what your what you for sharing and they know when they come over the shoulder it's a very small step bringing higher formally there's younger people and told them when they come to help stock up here this is the only type of food that they can afford and they're always really nice to search me out when I come on campus and one you know just something for you and we can have a conversation with Elizabeth birch trees and her and her vehicle hello friends without other people come out you know that they've shared with the government in a very long to get here there's concern among some of the only affordable food for thought I want to say that you have been letting the community know about the poverty issue for a long time now in fact the organization changed its name United against poverty to underscore the issue of poverty and central Florida there will be lessons to learn.

"Well I don't even know what that was he was gonna ruin fundamentally change the character of this nation that doesn't even make any sense the voter does that give you these people don't realize that the people that you elect are merely reflections of the electorate that's all that is they are merely reflections of the electorate period so we are supposed to have my surgery but I don't know if he's gonna be joining us or not because we can't get a hold of it as we got us we got em marches on Marjorie who is the head of black on the matter he also finally it's all is I don't know how long it's taken for him to finally speak it's the fact that he spoke at C. pack on the issue and I like that he shook up the room because I think that the issue needs to be shaken up because for awhile honestly it kind of felt like you know everybody gives lip service about guns they give lip service about second I'm not right yes yes you know it's like you say yes the way we love Jesus we love god I would love for it but then when it gets down to like really serious issues there and then there's a little bit of a drawback and like I like I was saying was some of the stuff like with the stopping for stuff that Bloomberg was promoted on like how are you going to go off on red flags class that then you're gonna go and support does it doesn't make any sense but March is on the phone with us now and it's good to talk to you my friend I was so glad to see you up on that stage I mean first thanks for having me Dana and second I looked very very handsome on the stage I have to be honest about that you you dress up nice in is that's the first I've ever seen in a suit a trick everybody because we're BG employees all across the street every that was eight you and you did a great job and you were really well received which I buy was a I mean I I'm glad you brought us such a really energetic message about this I got to ask your opinion on now that well it looks as not decided yet but for all intents and purposes it might be but Joe Biden got the endorsement of Beto o'rourke that we will hook to whom we affectionately refer to as the el Paso furry but they don't work as you remember he was the he was the guy out there saying hell yes we're gonna take your A. R. fifteen yes we're gonna we're going to do a quote unquote buyback of all of this stuff yes we're gonna I knew a lady will come in and force you to hang your firearms over how do you feel now that that looks like it better work looks like he's going to be the after the lack of a better way to put it Joe Biden's gun controls are if Joe Biden's the nominee and he's going to have him as part of his I guess it's part of his team what how's it make you feel it makes me feel like the reality that we present a black guns matter for two years which is but America has to get involved in this fight with a conservative and liberty minded folks to galvanize that support that flight because just because you know they don't give out or or or or maybe Michael everybody gets out that doesn't change the fact their money the fund raising capability they're all going into whoever's going to get that nomination and more than likely if it's looking like Joe at this given moment and at any given moment you can you help president Obama I think that they're going to pull an emotional heartstrings and more so now we need to merge the conservative message Selena urban America because that's exactly what they're going to take that message exactly what are going to go target exactly who is going to lock up first only firearms is urban America is all that you close the mereka so I I think it's funny we do the means and everything Gilbert drops out all this other stuff listen dear god of already fundraiser they can give that money to whoever they want to give it to the gift however you want to give it to one thing that the left has that we haven't been focused known as much as they have unity even if they do they they they look completely insane however when it's come together not to take the freedom to execute very very well so I think everybody should be very aware of that yeah and I think that's a good point I mean it's one thing to note any of it people can can joke about it laugh about it but you know really a had the elections are not all certain I mean you could be doing great the polls one day but then you know I mean we're still pretty far ways out from November a lot of stuff can take place and just as I mean I I never thought that my Bloomberg was going to get into the race the way that he did do you think that his involvement in an S. and and the primary those out now but there was a lot of discussion on on stop and frisk and I know that you know in some instances on the right there are people who are divided on it and I always rejected the idea that you are that you can that you can't somehow criticized the policy and still support good law enforcement but does it make sense to you that if they feel like it's the same formula with red flag law when when you look at stop and frisk because they they mean you're reducing the evidentiary standard to just reasonable suspicion from probable cause isn't that one of the things that we are criticizing were concerns red flag laws marsh absolutely we I mean it looks like people can't you know you you got to be very very intellectually like okay on it as well as consistent the reality is that how it plays out what someone said the panel will flow one of Bloomberg's guys want from every town the field today and and basically he was saying well we don't know it's actually it's stop question and frisk the reality located on a piece of paper that I would sound like but the reality of how it's executed especially in urban America if you say to a law enforcement officer sometimes I mean I'm talking about the corruption of law enforcement Baghdad the cryptographic this whatever but that those small amounts of god Hey man I'm I'm cool did not I'm I don't the description and or you know I really kind of don't want to talk right now then even that gives up pick you know presented as well why don't you let me do my job and how to execute it like it's been shown to its affected negatively and we had this thing called the Fourth Amendment I guess they're like advance was this kind of high up on the list too and I think that what happened when when you can get that off in the area where people have like a Bloomberg will justify old ninety percent of the criminals look like that when you can convince people that falsehood right wrong or indifferent you can convince people that Paul could you make an entire community look or feel like you know what the minute thing isn't actually human right for you if you actually are like Dennis and to a certain extent that is going to extreme it resembled the red flag law and and and that same way it well look this guy didn't you know open the door up at three o'clock in the morning well I mean what if you have died the reality is there's a reason why we have a constitution the bill of rights to the reader again the earlier statement we have to like the work we're doing it like a man I need a firearm safety in conflict resolution but also you know you got to get people in the urban areas millions tens of millions of people and you know maybe four or five cities you might be talking about twenty million people this is a voting block that has to understand this reality because the people that were up against or no right can also lead to a very day already entrenched the PR they've been able to spend for decades already there we have to step this up most effectively very quickly and like you said November but you know it's a far way out but it'll be here way before you know yeah I was happy to see that people are finally realizing at least when when when discussing it in in the commentary surrounding the debates that people actually finally woke up to the fact that this is a gun control tactic so people I mean and and and I know that when he was when they were debating on CNN or MSNBC that was kind of glossed over but thankfully elsewhere people were calling it out for for what it was it was it was a gun control tactics do you think that that may that may be the times have have shifted I just thought that when I look at how much Michael Richmond Virginia and this is the guy who I mean he funds the criticism against you March I mean he funds are to stop this feel like the tides are changing a little bit I mean where do you feel in that in that big and that big fight I mean obviously we're always gonna have to push back against that but in this latest endeavor how secure do you feel in in in this fight and the push back in Virginia and elsewhere that you've seen are we are around the corner we at that point yet you know we're not a day I do feel that the you know much more push back from our side to the other side I don't think we're around that corner yet I think that they they got so cocky with their aunt and arrogant they did just went for north and it's just like you know to help Mary it's going to help order like it doesn't even matter they played a cell phone that way because fortunately five many years people run around going yeah I think they're trying to like take guns and you know the beginning everybody like come on bro U. S. not what it is nobody's thinking about taking a gun then they come out right and say so but they're actually help helping us by being so arrogant and so when people around especially in urban areas going right now if they think this is not okay did you see a Richmond lobby day B. C. twenty thirty thousand people descend on the city you see people going dude you're you're you're do push of the F. B. sixty four are you doing blackface left the got a Klan robe the advent of social social media as well as the admin of you know two years then you have people so far a lot like god like Kim Blanchard who were black new trainees thanks fifteen twenty years ago you know and it's like oh they actually worse so I don't think that we've turned that corner because we can't get cocky however I do think that the tactics that they're using they're not a claim they're done and it's a lot easier to to point out I mean again bagel hello you're we're gonna take your guns that that's an arrogant statement your fans and so they even down so even on the Bloomberg are you just going to get four primaries is going by the way is the people on the left colleges like forget Bernie twice in a row we gonna cut him right off twice the contradiction of being exposed to people all over the country maybe even the world I'm hoping that you know the son of the president of Brazil at the back and I'm discussing things with him and it's like the entire world is watching Virginia right now and our response to it the fear that I had is they won't know how to fall back take.

R. N. in Columbus Ohio you're on the air with constant contact hi congressman mark you're one of my favorite congressman largely because you talk about defense spending and see if it's something that I've been trying to reduce since I was in the army way back in the seventies and have you talked with the progressive carcass about what since they can have you tried to convince them and I I I know there's some pretty good movies that would be a good to help them decide there's one called command control which was about the he hiking to missile disaster in Arkansas but I don't know where it's at I think there's a lot of things that we could use help convince people that we're we're just out of control on defense spending but what have you done thank god you're here remember if I if I if I may ask you remember well built and William congressman William Proxmire and he was from Wisconsin as Golden Fleece award are you old enough to remember that I I'm familiar with it I didn't know him but I yeah I I've heard of it he I mean every it he was a Republican as I recall and every year he came out with his Golden Fleece award and nine times out of ten it was the Pentagon that he was given a two and it was you know he'd be out of the five hundred dollar toilet seats in the nine hundred dollar hammers all this kind of stuff and just every year he created outrage by laser focusing on one single example that was matter to the entire mass back to you well David thank you for your kind comment in terms that you brought this up I will say you know I let this effort on trains dime we're cranes and was forced to add to reimburse the federal government sixteen million dollars and what they were doing is buying small subsidiaries supplying parts to the defense department and jacking up prices almost ten thousand percent well it was so outrageous that as you put it even Republicans were outraged with what was going on and fleecing the the country so you seen for collectors huge bloated defense budgets but also abuse by contractors and monopoly contractors to David's question I have talked to colleagues about it I've made the point that most people are sick of these endless wars and they're sick of bloated defense budgets that aren't helping them that our competitiveness would be much better off and we'd be much better off as a country making more strategic investments in education and infrastructure and healthcare in broadband that would do more to improve people's lives in a bit Tamara position America in the twenty first century and I said you know there there you never used to be this pair.

N. in Columbus Ohio you're on the air with constant contact hi congressman mark you're one of my favorite congressman largely because you talk about defense spending and see if it's something that I've been trying to reduce since I was in the army way back in the seventies and have you talked with the progressive carcass about what if it's they can have you tried to convince them and I I I know there's some pretty good movies that would be a good to help them decide there's one called command control which was about the the technician missile disaster in Arkansas but I don't know where it's at I think there's a lot of things that we could use help convince people that we're we're just out of control on defense spending but what have you done thank god you're here remember if I if I if I may ask you remember well built and William congressman William Proxmire and he was from Wisconsin as Golden Fleece award are you old enough to remember that I I'm familiar with it I didn't know him but I yeah I I've heard of it he I mean every it he was a Republican as I recall and every year he came out with his Golden Fleece award and nine times out of ten it was the Pentagon that he was given a two and it was you know he'd be out of the five hundred dollar toilet seats in the nine hundred dollar hammers all this kind of stuff and just every year he created outrage by laser focusing on one single example that was matter to the entire mass back to you well David thank you for calling concomitant I'm since you brought this up I will say you know I let this effort on trains dime we're cranes and was forced to add to reimburse the federal government sixteen million dollars and what they were doing is buying small subsidiaries supplying parts to the defense department and jacking up prices almost ten thousand percent well it was so outrageous that as you put it even Republicans were outrage was what was going on and fleecing the the country so you seen for collectors huge bloated defense budgets but also abuse by contractors and monopoly contractors to David's question I have talked to colleagues about it I've made the point that that most people are sick of these endless wars and they're sick of bloated defense budgets that aren't helping them that our competitiveness would be much better off and we'd be much better off as a country making more strategic investments in education and infrastructure and healthcare in broadband that would do more to improve people's lives in a bit Tamara position America in the twenty first century and I said you know there there you never used to be this pair spare.
