A Salvation Army officer rings a bell

Bell ringing for good is almost here

Event Details

Date: November 16 - December 24, 2018

Time: All day event

Venue: Twin Cities Area Cub stores and Mall of America

The iconic red kettles have been dusted off and are ready for their holiday debut. They will first appear at Twin Cities area Cub stores and Mall of America on Saturday, Nov. 16. We’re starting the season strong with a $20,000 match to all kettle donations on this day, thanks to Cub.

Tune into KOOL 108 to hear a playlist of your favorite Christmas tunes as you run errands and make a stop at a local kettle. Kettles will debut at additional stores and locations near you later in November. They’ll be on the streets through Monday, Dec. 24.

Bell Ringers Needed

We need thousands of volunteer bell ringers this Christmas season. 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, or shelter an individual for a night.

You can help when you sign up online for a Twin Cities bell ringing shift. You’ll receive a confirmation email with your selected shifts to confirm that your registration was received. To sign up by phone, or for any questions, please call our Twin Cities bell ringing hotline at 651-746-3519.
