Bell Ringers Needed!

The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Volunteers can be the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.

How your kettle donations add up

When you volunteer to bell ring or give at a red kettle, you help improve, and even save lives. The money dropped in a kettle goes right back into your local community.

How much of an impact can you have?

Well, four hours of time ringing at a Salvation Army red kettle raises about $120 in donations. So where does that money go? Good question!

Every day of the year The Salvation Army provides basic needs, housing, youth services, rehabilitation, and counseling and spiritual care to people in the communities we serve. The Salvation Army is also often the first to arrive and the last to leave during times of disaster or crisis.

To Volunteer to be a Bell Ringer please contact Annette Finch or Michelle Figueroa at  585-589-5605
