Yes. This is the fundamental point of corporate business. Some would argue it’s not sad, it’s just what ‘business’ is, and maybe it’s better that the charities get something rather than Google getting it.
The charity I volunteer at gets all sorts of stuff from the supermarkets. They get some benefits in return (it’s good PR, it boosts their staff’s morale and they can sometimes send us stuff which would otherwise disrupt their workflow or which would cost them to dispose of), but if it were to significantly dent their bottom line then I suspect they’d stop doing it.

We have gone from 130+ per day pre-covid and car parking wars, to about 15-20 and no one on a Friday with two kitchens between them!
We are looking to sell the place and re-purpose it in the meantime
Our office block is worse since COVID, seems the London types have moved in and still like to get out of the house. Thankfully the crackhead block I’m working in is mostly stolen bikes and car park empty. We actually lost a member of the admin team at said office because they couldn’t park their car conveniently. No one likes to park near the met office
the other person won’t get a word in with that filibustering twat.
Well, now we know one of the things he’ll be doing if he fails to retain his seat next year.
