Could it be possible that

Could it be possible that some of these services were donated? When I was a dental technician in the Navy, we used to donate services such as exams and dental hygiene instructions at health fairs all the time. As a matter of fact, there are things a community can do for itself to reduce some of this FREE stuff that you complain about. In Virginia where I live, the local TV station hosts a Stuff-The-Bus school supplies drive every year. They partner with the school boards and grocery stores to arrange to have a bus park in the stores' parking lots. People donate school supplies and get to meet reporters. The TV station also partners with dry cleaners in the fall for it's Coats-For-Kids project. They collect new or gently used coats and distribute them to kids whose parents might not be able to afford them. That's how you get around the precious taxpayer's money issue. Simply ask the public to contribute it's spare time and resources. Those who don't mind will contribute. Those who gripe and complain will do that, and those who are need will be helped.
