Here is a Public Aid (PA) post..eneded up being locked by cafemom admin.
Know i myself would have been a little upset that she was wasting in order to gain a few cents, However, I myself have at one point had the link card and no job it was for a very short period but..I did a similar thing I purchased milk in a glass bottle (something i know my kid would drink) and the bottles deposit was 1,50 each i saved them up and when i needed diapers, baby wipes or Birthday or Christmas present i returned them...but i used the contents of milk purchased and never used the money for something that did provide for my child ( At the time I was a single mother full-time college student and let go from my job due to store downsizing.) everyone that gets assistance does not stay on it, want to be on it,etc..in my case i was alone in this world with nobody to help me.
its one thing to ask for help,its another to take it and its even another to abuse it... some people do abuse it while not everyone,PA is suppose to be a hand up(Help) not a hand out people need to remember that.
