Occoquan, Va., is giving Salvation Army bell ringers a safe haven to raise money.

Mayor Earnie Porta let bell ringers collect for the red kettle campaign all over town Friday night.
  
Mayor Porta extended the invitation after Giant Foods announced the company is limiting soliciting to six days a month for just four hours at a time.

The Salvation Army says half of the of $1.3 million raised by local bell ringers last year came from kettles outside Giant stores.
