Bell ringers needed near you
In most locations across the Midwest, the easiest way to help from early November through Christmas Eve is to ring a bell at one of our iconic red kettles.
Make a difference with every ring
Michael volunteers to ring a bell at a Salvation Army kettle every day from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve. He knows that his smile and warm greeting encourage passersby to give more generously. His kettle along raises nearly $10,000 each year - all because he gives his time.
Volunteer bell ringers, like Michael, are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises the funds to sustain our programs all year long. The Salvation Army relies on money raised in red kettles to serve more than 25 million people in need every year.
