Requesting Donations from Businesses

I hate requesting donations from stores for things for the youth ministry. People don't return my calls, they leave me hanging - wondering about whether or not they're going to respond, and I generally feel like a second-class citizen. I figured that i was still entitled to good "customer service" even if i wasn't really acting as their "customer," but i guess once i'm not a source of money i'm not important anymore.

In all fairness i should add that after i wrote this, i discovered that the particular business i was frustrated at this time had, indeed, sent me a letter around the time when they said i should be hearing from them. We had actually misplaced it and found it 2 weeks later. But this is not the only time i've been frustrated.
