Bell ringers facing more restrictions

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Red kettles and bell ringers are back out in front Bellingham stores, but it’s not like it used to be.

The Salvation Army’s Major James Lloyd says some stores don’t allow them at all and others have cut back the number of hours they can be there.

Play James Lloyd on need

This year’s goal is $170,000 dollars and is less than last year’s goal.

Lloyd says the good news is that people in Whatcom County tend to give a great deal.
