This makes me sad for humanity.
The problem is that in many cases these tickets would be just given to friends and family of people in the organization, not the ones who could use it. They probably should have advertised tickets at whatever the closed pool admission was that was the reason for the promotion, say $5 to 10. If you advertise FREE lots of people will come that really could care less except that it is "free". If money was the reason these neighborhood pools were closed , then donate the proceeds to help them get reopened.Yep.
While I commend the construction company for wanting to do something for the community there were probably better ways to implement this that didn't involve a first come first served free for all.
For instance, they could have reached out to local support organizations, given them the tickets and let them distribute them to the people as they saw fit. Those organizations would know better how to handle the distribution.
