We are launching our Red kettle drive on November 20th and hope you can help on the drive!! 


What is the Bell ringing Kettle Drive?

The red Kettle drive is a fundraising opportunity to raise funds to help families in need in our community.

Where does the money raised in the red kettles go, and how is it used?

The Salvation Army raises funds to support our local services. There is no national fundraising in The Salvation Army. Funds raised in each community are dedicated to best serving the people in that community who are recovering from many kinds of personal disasters. 

What types of services might that be? 

Christmas services include toys for needy children. Throughout the year The Salvation Army provides specific programs to aid the poor and needy such as food, emergency financial assistance, youth recreation, and development programs. 

Who do I contact if there is a problem with my kettles?

There will be a paper on your kettle with the contact information for our kettle coordinator. 

What time do I arrive in advance for my day?

Please be on site ready to ring bells at least 10 minutes prior to your assigned time. 

Is there a dress code for times when I am ringing the bell?

As an official bell ringer for The Salvation Army, you will be given a beautiful(!) A stylish (!) red apron that says "volunteer" on the front. We want people to know you are with us. And you will be given a bell to ring, of course!
