Help! Have submitted valid portal 3x

Hi folks,

Even though I describe this non-profit and it has a sidewalk, it keeps getting denied for being a general store with no pedestrian access. I will keep submitting it as it's legit. But does anyone have any advice? Here's the supplemental information provided (do folks actually read the supplemental info?):

"SCCLS, a non-profit charitable corporation, has given millions of dollars of FREE Civil Legal Aid to the community for 25+ years. Are CHARITY headquarters valid candidates? If they have cultural significance or have done something significant for the COMMUNITY."

    It simply doesn't meet the Wayspot Criteria. Just because something is "non-profit" or ran as a charity doesn't mean it is an eligible wayspot. For example, a Goodwill store or a thrift store ran by the Salvation Army is still ineligible and would be rejected as a generic business.

    @TheFarix so where is the guidance on what actually qualifies as a non-profit charity worthy of a wayspot? What parameters does one reference?

    YMCA & YWCA are generic businesses but fortunately their wayspots are approved.

    SCCLS is based in this region without franchises and not found anywhere else in the world. It has provided millions of dollars of free legal help to marginalized folks for more than 25 years in the areas of housing law, family law, government benefits including Social Security disability, elder law, education law, and consumer law.

    YMCA and YWCA meet the criteria because they are popular spots where locals gather. They also fall under the criteria of public spaces that encourage walk and exercise. Their non-profit status isn't what makes them eligible. A Goodwill store of a Salvation Army affiliated thrift store is not eligible as wayspots either, even though those organizations are non-profit charities.
