Ring Bells to Help People Stay Warm This Winter.
When it gets cold, the Salvation Army will have warming centers open. Please, help them do this and so much more...here's how to volunteer to ring bells!
When you ring the bells, you're helping people right here in the 507. The money that goes in the kettle stay here, for all sorts of Salvation Army programs...

- Utility Assistance
- Employment Assistance
- Clothing and Household Items
- Transportation Assistance
- Medical Assistance
- Seasonal Services
- Veteran’s Assistance
- Pathway of Hope for Families
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER?
You can take just a couple hours one day at one kettle, or get some friends together and take a whole day of ringing. With two you you ringing per shift, the hours go fast, and you feel great after!
If you have a tight neighborhood association, post it on the neighborhood's Facebook page, then call around and fill up a day. After, one of the other homes could host a hot cocoa and movie celebration!
To sign up, click HERE (or the picture above). Then on the left side of the Salvation Army page, just tell 'em what date, what city, and where you'd like to ring.
Simple. In, out, no mussin' about.
What about music? Great! Christmas music on a boom-box, singing, a guitar, a harmonica...bring 'em and remember, little kids are super sweet and really get people to donate.
No pets tho, please.
The kids'll soon be off for a couple weeks, and games are a great way to have fun together.
