Christmas Volunteer Opportunities 

Bell Ringers
We are truly fortunate to have a group of merchants willing to let us set up the Red Kettles at their store entrances. We are also blessed to have a number of volunteer groups, individuals, families, and businesses to help us ring our bells each year. Without their collective help, we would not be able to provide Christmas Cheer to thousands in need each year.

Would you like to volunteer as a bell ringer? Find a location near you, then call (239) 278-1551 to set your schedule and begin ringing.
