BELL RINGING LOCATIONS

36 SITES and 9,345 TIME SLOTS to chose from!

Be part of the traditional Christmas landscape as a Red Kettle Bellringer.
If you and/or organization enjoy being around people and are outgoing and personable this is the volunteer opportunity you are looking for!

As a bellringer you may select a specific location(s), date(s) and a minimum two hour shift where you will ring an old fashion-style school bell and extend Christmas cheer to customers who deposit pocket change into a red kettle as they entering and exiting local businesses.

Bellringing runs from November 7th to December 24th, Monday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Some bellringing locations maybe located out-of-doors. Children under 16 years of age may ring bells with adult supervision. There must be one adult for every three children.

Proceeds from bellringing stay in the local area and will help provide the funding for food, housing and energy assistance, emergency aid and other services throughout the year to those requiring our support.

EMERGENCY SOCIAL SERVICES (ESS)

The Salvation Army Emergency Social Services Program bridges a gap for families and individuals by meeting their emergency and basic needs while they are working through their temporary financial crisis.

After assessing clients’ needs, Salvation Army caseworkers provide and assistance package to help clients during temporary setbacks. Part of that package may include referrals to other agencies, which have forged partnerships with The Salvation Army.

Services, based upon available funding, include assistance with mortgage/rent payments, utilities, clothing, groceries/meals, disaster recovery, funeral expenses, furniture, prescriptions and spiritual counseling.
