When Rankin Paynter visited a Kmart that was closing its doors in Winchester, Ky. he got an idea: Why not buy the store and donate it to charity?
"What I see is people coming in my store, needy people sell their stuff," Paynter said, who owns a jewelry exchange business in Winchester. "It's bad nowadays. I just told (the clerk) let's just give it away to charity."
Six hours and four cash registers later, Paynter was the proud owner of a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of merchandise, all of which he donated to Clark County Community Services.

Well, I would of just donated it to the people who are wandering around the street aimlessly, Donating it all to a community center depends on if some workers aren't crook themselves or if they actually give it to the people who do need it. I don't trust community centers. People who do need it are the ones on the streets.
