SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Spokane Guilds' School Foundation said city ordinances in Spokane and Spokane Valley have limited some crucial fundraising events.
Fundraisers like the "Kids for Kids" Penny Drive and regional firefighters' "Fill the Boot" have been restricted because of a 2010 ordinance in Spokane Valley and a 2012 ordinance in Spokane. Both of the ordinances prohibit the solicitation or collection of money from city streets.
The Spokane Guilds' School Foundation said the ordinances have limited access to Penny Drive donation sites in the county. They originally had 18 sites for the fundraiser and now they are down to 13 which is a 28% decrease.
The foundation will have donation drop-off sites throughout Spokane County on Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
