With the Christmas season right around the corner, The Salvation Army is once again looking for volunteers to ring bells at red kettle locations in Quincy, Hannibal, and the surrounding area. Kettles with silent bells (unmanned) historically bring in fewer donations than kettles with bells. Volunteers can sign up online at for shifts as short as two hours, they can “Adopt-A-Kettle” for a day, or they can register to virtually ring using the same website.

In addition to volunteer positions, paid positions are also available this Christmas. Paid positions are considered part-time, temporary, and shifts are available from the first day of kettles starting Friday, November 11 and lasting through Saturday, December 24. Applications for these positions are available at The Kroc Center, located at 405 Vermont Street in Quincy. Applications are also available at The Salvation Army Family Store in Hannibal, located at 200 Steamboat Bend Shopping Center.

The hours for bell ringing are Wednesday through Friday 11am - 7pm in Quincy and Hannibal and Saturdays 9am - 7pm.
