Christmas Volunteer Opportunities 

Bell Ringers
We've made it easier than ever to become a bell ringer! You can now sign up online to volunteer as a Red Kettle bell ringer! Use the link below to register, and then choose your location and time. You'll receive an email confirming your registration and another once we have approved your location choice.

The online system automatically notifies volunteers (either by email or text message) 4 hours before their ringing time. To receive a text alert, you must indicate your cell phone number plus the carrier, or you can receive an email notification as a reminder.

For groups, please call the office (239-278-1551) to set up your group's online profile. After that, your volunteers can go online to sign up at your location.
