Throughout the Christmas season, there is one sound that can be heard above all of the hustle and the bustle. As The Salvation Army Bell rings, it reminds us of hope, redemption, and new life. It is hard to imagine Christmas without the sounds of these small, tin bells ringing.


Times change. People carry less cash than they ever have before. Just like stores and retailers are having to change their approaches to ensure that they can continue to do business, it's important for The Salvation Army to adapt, too!

We need your help, more than ever, to ensure that the sounds of the Christmas season include this familiar tone. We need your support to Keep the Bell Ringing.

50% of Americans say that they carry cash less than half the time. When you put cash in any our kettles, we help to support change through the programs we offer year round in the community.

While there will always be the thrill of holiday shopping, 79% of Americans say that they prefer to shop online. With fewer people shopping in person, there are less donors for our kettles.

There are many ways that you can Join the Fight for Good and help The Salvation Army continue to make change in the lives of those most in need throughout your community.
