Salvation Army Seeks Volunteer Bell Ringers

The Salvation Army needs volunteer Bell Ringers for their Red Kettle Fundraising Campaign. Year after year community members, students, businesses, families and individuals volunteer thousands of hours towards this great cause. Their goal is to raise $120,000 for their local programs and services this Christmas Season. These funds will provide diapers and wipes through our baby pantry, rent and utility assistance, gifts under local Christmas trees, opportunities for kids to attend summer camp, free music lessons, and much more!

Bell-ringing is a rewarding and a highly effective way to get your group of friends, family and co-workers involved in helping The Salvation Army continue serving our community. Signing up is easy; Just follow the instructions below to register.
