During the holidays, volunteers are always needed to ring bells at our red kettle locations around Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee Counties. It's a fun and easy way to give back and support our programs that serve local families in need.

Timeslots for individual bell ringers are generally two hours but you can choose as many as you like. Simply go to www.RegisterToRing.com and enter your zip code to find locations near you. Volunteers are permitted to bring their own stool, if needed. Groups of 2 or 3 ringers are welcome. Ringers can also sing or play instruments. Be creative!

Church groups, clubs, businesses and other organizations can schedule one or more days of bell ringing and receive recognition for their group. Typically, an organization will create five 2-hour timeslots or 10 1-hour timeslots to fill a day with their members. Each organization booking a full day receives a sign on their red kettle as well as recognition on Facebook and Instagram.

For more information on bell ringing, contact Volunteer Coordinator Kim Johnson at 772-288-1471, ext. 202, or kim.johnson@uss.salvationarmy.org.
