Volunteer to Ring the Bell

For many, the first sign that Christmas is near is when The Salvation Army bell rings out cheer! You can be a part of that magic by volunteering to ring the bell this Christmas.

What do you do when you volunteer to ring the bell?

  • Smile and be welcoming and friendly to all who pass by your kettle
  • Ring the bell to generate donations into the red kettle - and ring it with spirit!
  • Sometimes you may need to answer questions about the Angel Tree or other Christmas activities. Don't worry! We will provide you with a cheat sheet with everything you need to know.

Who can volunteer to ring the bell?

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You may bring children who are 8 years old or older with you

What should I wear?

  • Christmas is a festive season! Feel free to wear holiday-themed shirts, hats, and accessories. We will provide you with a Salvation Army apron to help you represent The Salvation Army brand
  • It's a good idea to wear comfortable shoes, as you will stand for long periods of time
  • Please refrain from wearing shirts or hats with controversial messages or images
