New Albany, In. (WDRB) -- New Albany officials want to stop roadside collections for charities.
City council votes tonight on a measure that could eliminate how some charities operate. Some city officials say bright vests and orange cones aren't enough to keep volunteers and drivers safe when collecting money.
The New Albany City Council wants to ban fundraising groups from collecting donations on public streets. According to New Albany's Public Works Board, 18 fundraising groups did roadside collections last year. Many used busy intersections like the one at State and Elm Streets.
Sometimes the groups make as much as $2,000s in a single day. This decision could cripple some organizations depend on this type of fundraising. The Salvation Army's Stephen Kiger says "for us, five or six thousand dollars will just evaporate. We've got to find that money somewhere else."
But critics say roadside collections are dangerous for the charities and for drivers. Councilman Dan Coffey believes charities should go back to more traditional types of fundraisers such as car washes and cookouts. He says sometimes people just throw money in a bucket and often don't know what the money is going towards.
The new ban on roadside donation collection passed a first reading in a 5-3 vote earlier this month. A final vote is set for tonight.
