Geez, I thought United Way had parted company with the Boy Scouts decades ago. It was followed shortly thereafter by a campaign to not give to UW, and instead give to the Boy Scouts directly.

I recall it was a big success, with the Boy Scouts getting a lot more money than usual, and UW getting all whiny that their donations had plummeted.

This happened in PA years ago. Husbands work insists donations to United Way. So we have designated directly to the local Boys Scouts. They have to send the money there if it is designated to a specific organization by the donor.
