Overflowing donation boxes may not always be a good thing.

St. Joseph's outreach better get over to this box, it is overflowing. The great news is that there must be a lot of good-hearted people out there that want to donate their old clothes to people in need. Perhaps this has positive implications for the economy.

The bad news is that the contributors can't read the sign that says not to leave stuff outside of the box, and that the outreach program hasn't been by to get it (I left a message on their machine). I don't think that they should refuse donations from apparently illiterate people, but accepting them seems to make the job a little harder.

Maybe it is all for the best. This guy, changing his oil in the parking lot, was able to use some of the open bags to get rags for his task.

Circle of life.
