Online registration now open to ring for Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign

(ABC 6 News) – Online registration is now open for time slots to ring bells for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

Anyone can sign up to ring a bell at Red Kettles across Rochester, Byron, Stewartville, and Chatfield between November 12 and December 24, 2021. The Salvation Army is hoping to recruit volunteers to ring for 6-8,000 hours in the six weeks before Christmas.

The annual Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army’s largest annual fundraiser, resulting in one-third to as much as one-half of all the dollars they need to serve struggling individuals and families for an entire year.

“Volunteers who ring bells raise as much as $100 an hour for people in need,” said Major Bob Mueller, Corps Officer of The Salvation Army in Rochester.

“I truly don’t think people realize how much of a massive impact bell ringers have on the people we serve. It’s inspiring and we are so, so grateful to the people who give of their time.”
