Boy Scouts no longer receiving funding from Walt Disney Company

By: WJAC Web Staff

HARRISBURG -- The Walt Disney Company announced it is ending its financial support of the Boy Scouts of America.

Disney said it is ending the support due to the BSAs policy against allowing gay scout leaders.

Disney said the funding will end Dec. 31.

Disney did not provide direct funding to the BSA but donates to numerous troops in exchange for volunteer hours completed by Disney employees.

A Boy Scout spokesman said the group is disappointed by the decision.
