VOLUNTEER Red Kettle Ringers

The Salvation Army is known for our famous Red Kettle Bell Ringers throughout the Christmas season. They ring bells at locations all around the community as participants in our largest fund-raising effort of the year. While this fund-raiser happens only during November and December, the money raised goes directly toward keeping our programs running year-round. Programs like our Food Pantry, that feeds the hungry in our community; our Boys & Girls Club, that keeps your children safe in the afternoons and summer months; Pathway of Hope, that works to break the cycle of poverty in families in Durham. Join us as we work to Do The Most Good in Durham by ringing a red kettle with your family or organization. Check back soon for our 2017 location list!
