ARC is American Red Cross. I admit that I have personal bias against them, but remember that they are a business as are most charities. The Wounded Warrior sales meetings are not uncommon in non-profit businesses.

I'm not saying ARC doesn't do any good, I just prefer to make my donations to other organizations.
