Would you stop supporting a charity because a conservative radio station also supports it? [View all]

A friend told I should no longer support Katarina's Club because conservative radio station KFI also supports them. I saw a news report about 8 years ago that a chef in Anahiem was feeding kids who lived in motels and they talked to some of the kids and before Chef Bruno partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to feed these kids they were earing meals from convenience stores and vending machines. That bothered me so I have been supporting them ever since.

They have expanded the program to get families out of the motels by paying the move in costs for them for apartments.The radio station raised over $1.3 million and over 80k pounds of pasta and sauce in a fund raising drive.

I told my friend that my support wasn't contingent on who else was donating but on the work the charity does.
