Salvation Army Bell Ringers Not Allowed at Fleet Farm

UNDATED  (AP) – Shoppers won’t find a Salvation Army red kettle outside Mills Fleet Farm stores this year. The company has decided not to allow the charity’s bell ringers to collect donations outside its stores.

Co-President Stewart Mills Jr.  says the company will make a donation to the
Salvation Army and has supported the charity in past years, but allowing bell ringers could open the floodgates to others who want to use the company’s property.

Some shoppers say they understand the move, and will still make an effort to give at other stores where bell ringers are collecting for the cause.

Mills Fleet Farm is based in Brainerd.
