Volunteer today! Be A Bell Ringer

Register to Ring Bells with The Salvation Army

The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Volunteers are 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.

Who can bell ring? Anyone! Want to learn what bell ringing is all about? Check out our bell ringing video below.

Registrations are open September 15 - December 24.

Select a location below or sign up early for other Christmas volunteer opportunities

If you have questions or would like to set up special groups or competitions, use our contact form or call 773-205-3574.
