United Way of Blair County President Kevin Davis Places his head in the Sand Regarding the Boy Scouts of America

January 19, 2005

Kevin Davis, President
1216 Pleasant Valley Blvd
Altoona PA 16602

Dear Mr. Davis:

While your response to my letter of January 10 was prompt, your equivocations failed to address the issue of funding the Boy Scouts.

One of the critical needs of the community is "Nurturing Children and Youth."

Undoubtedly, BSA deems itself eligible in that category. How can you possibly fund an "area" without giving money to organizations? I would really like to understand how that works.

Furthermore, United Way's non-discrimination policy (as stated in the website) is crystal clear that you must "ensure that each organization" funded " maintains a policy of non-discrimination."

It would behoove United Way of Blair County to claim the moral high ground by refusing to contribute to discrimination and civil rights violations perpetrated by Boy Scouts of America.
