NBC2 News Online - Local charity accused of discrimination

NBC2 News Online - Local charity accused of discrimination: "LEE COUNTY� One of Southwest Florida's most respected charities, the Nations Association, has been accused of discrimination against African Americans. The organization has been helping those in need for more than two decades. They rely on donations and money from the government to serve the needy. Because of the allegations of discrimination, the government is withholding $20,000 from the charity.
At the Nations Association, they pride themselves in serving people of all nations.
'We deal with everybody here,' said Reverend Israel Suarez of the Nations Association.
Suarez runs the charity. His 26 years of service in Lee County haven't gone unnoticed.
'My job is helping people,' said Suarez."
