Salvation Army Needs Bell Ringers

Advisors, Counselors and Teachers:


The Salvation Army is in need of Clubs or Groups to help with the Red Kettle Christmas Bellringing.


It's a fun way to earn community service hours, and possibly make it a friendly competition.


Bellringing begins late November and runs through December 23rd, with no Bellringing on Sunday. Shifts are generally from 8 am-10 pm. Students can take a hour with a friend, and the group can do one day or more, depending on the number of students involved. Minimum age to ring is 16 years old.


Please contact Melida McManness at 816-968-0372 if you and your group would be interested in being a Bellringer this season.
