VILLA RICA, Ga. -

A group of Shriners in Villa Rica are upset after being told to stop collecting money in the streets.

Bill Hathaway, who is with the organization, has been going to the same intersection for two years. He says the money he collects is for children's hospitals.

According to Hathaway, a city councilman told the Shriners he 'doesn't want them out there collecting.'

Several Shriners packed the city council meeting on Tuesday in hopes to continue collecting for the charities.

FOX 5 will bring you more on the story tonight at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
