yeah, the charity does NOT come from organizations
It ALL comes from the people
organizations just manage it
in the US they are often PAID to do this
(in canada too sometimes I think)
What is "charitable choice"?
So-called "charitable choice" provisions have been put forth as a solution to the very real problems associated with delivering social services to America’s neediest citizens. "Charitable choice" provisions require the government to give religious institutions an equal footing when it seeks bids and grants contracts for the private-sector provision of government-funded social services (such as providing food or job training). The opening of this process to pervasively sectarian institutions (churches, synagogues, mosques) is deeply troubling because many "charitable choice" plans have been put forth without adequate safeguards to ensure that religious activity, including proselytizing, is not a part of that service delivery.
This is a major departure from previous practices. While it is true that religiously-affiliated organizations (such as Catholic Charities) have traditionally received government funds to deliver social services, government regulation—safeguards—have always ensured that such organizations do not integrate religious activities into their delivery of government-funded social services or discriminate in hiring staff to provide such services.

The only religion in the "out of the cold" program I volunteer at is we say grace before supper on an optional basis.... some religious types would just love to proselytize here, but that's all they get
