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.
