The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve, when the red kettles are packed away for the season. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night (learn more about how kettle donations become help for those in need).

We need thousands of volunteer bell ringers this Christmas season. You can help when you sign up online for a bell ringing shift. You’ll receive a confirmation email with your selected shifts to confirm that your registration was received. To sign up by phone, or for any questions, please call our Twin Cities bell ringing hotline at 651-746-3519.
