Christmas Kettle Campaign

Volunteers ring the bell outside the listed store locations. This may be done individually or in groups of 2-3 people. You may sign up a large group under one name and rotate volunteers for a full day. If you list your organization when you register, there will be a sign at the kettle when you arrive that recognizes your organization, turn the sign backward when your group has completed all shifts. A minimum of 2 hours is required.

Volunteers need only to arrive at the kettle, and ring the bell. Kettles, aprons and bells will be delivered to each kettle site. You may leave at the end of your reserved shift, kettles are locked in position and will be picked up when the drivers make their rounds. Remove apron, place the bell in the pocket, and hang it on the kettle stand. You do not need to wait for the next person or the driver to arrive, please do not move the kettle stand. Please do not smoke at the kettle, if you take a break to smoke please remove the apron provided.
