Christmas Bell Ringer

Come ring our bells this Christmas and help The Salvation Army make a BIG difference in your community. We have nearly 200 bellringing sites throughout Metro St. Louis. Sign up is easy - go to RegisterToRing.com and select the location and date of your choice. There are sure signs of the Christmas season: Christmas tree, lights, and pretty ornaments; Christmas music playing; people generally in a cheerful and generous spirit; and the ringing bells of The Salvation Army bellringers outside of stores across the nation. The Red Kettle campaign began in 1891 and continues today as The Salvation Army’s largest public fundraising campaign. Nearly everyone is welcomed and encouraged to volunteer to ring. Individuals, families, students, corporate employees, church groups, service clubs, social organizations, scout troops, friends, the list is endless. Bellringing is open to anyone who wants to donate their time and have a rewarding experience. If under age 16, volunteers must have a parent or guardian present with them while ringing. Ringing bells can be more fun when you recruit others to help. Co-workers, family, and friends are always welcome to assist you. It also teaches them the importance of volunteering at a young age.
