Bell Ringing

The easiest way to help from early November through Christmas Eve is to ring a bell at one of our iconic red kettles, raising the funds that change lives all year long. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries. Sign up online to bell ring.

Don’t see an opportunity here for you? Call us. We’ll find a place for anyone who wants to help.
