Door to door solicitors for United Soldier Outreach operating in Shoreline

Shoreline resident Nicole Brink-Dingler reports that a group calling themselves United Soldier Outreach is going door to door in Shoreline, asking for money for soldiers overseas.

This group moves from state to state. An article in KXON Investigates, of Austin, Texas, "Police warn of group claiming to raise money for soliders"  says that the solicitors take cash, have no valid permits, and no legal existence that the reporter could find.

They were operating all over central Texas. Now the same people are in Shoreline.

Other than political doorbelling, or local businesses, solicitors in Shoreline are required to register with the city. Every solicitor is required to carry a valid City of Shoreline permit.

If they don't have it, call the police 206-296-3311. Shoreline Police like to know who is operating in their territory. Provide a physical description (height, weight, gender, race, clothing) and what direction they were traveling.

And don't give them money.
