Every request is considered but please understand that the volume makes it impossible to answer or even acknowledge every solicitation q. I received a Call on Tho Telephone from a person soliciting a $15 donation to Tho boys Home fund which the caller said was being sponsored by the . Law enforcement officers Assn. I asked if they could mail me More information and within a few Days i received a form indicating the payment would also entitle the donor to a Florida vacation. It made me wonder How much of this Quot donation Quot actually went to Tho boys Home and How much to promote some real estate sales in Florida and Why the association is sponsoring something that appears to be misleading on the surface at least. Mrs. . A. The better business Bureau s newsletter of april 28 reported that the Man in charge of soliciting by mail and Telephone a could not divulge the percentage of his collections that would go to boy s Home and How much to the fund they also stated that a Check with state authorities in Raleigh indicated the Campaign was not registered or licensed there. Chief Laurie Pritchett says the n. C. Law enforcement officers Assn. Is a statewide association with a membership of about 4,000 officers. The association is attempting to build a boys Home at Lake acc maw and this was one Way that they were trying to raise Money for the project. A local police officer and a representative from the vacation company had to sign All checks and this information is turned Over to the n. C. . When the vacation company failed to get a state solicitation permit the officers association dropped their sponsorship or connection with the Florida vacation promoters. Of the $15, 40 per cent was earmarked for the boys Home project and 60 per cent went to the Florida vacation promoters. Pritchett says they have heard from people who have already used the vacation and reported they enjoyed the trip which they considered Well Worth the Money. They therefore feel that this particular land promotion is on the up and up. Just so their baby does no to go out with the Bath water done to stifle your charitable inclinations of you want to support the project and forego tile Bonus. The department made no pitch but we re sure they a Welcome contributions sent to the association in care of the chief of police. Food needed q.
