Ringing a bell for the Salvation Army is a fun and easy way to support your community!

Jessica has been ringing bells in the Twin Cities for several years. Giving back in this way has been a tradition in her family that began with her father, Roger. Up until he passed away in 2018, he dedicated countless hours to bell ringing throughout his life.

“He is the one who got us hooked on bell ringing,” Jessica said. “He had an abundance of enthusiasm that endeared him to the communities he served.”

The Salvation Army needs your help! There are more than 300 red kettle sites around the Twin Cities metro area, with about 100,000 hours of bell ringing to fill now through Christmas Eve.

The Twin Cities Salvation Army serves 149,000 people every year—providing food, clothing, shelter, youth programs, and other vital services, all of which are funded by kettle donations. They’re hoping to raise about $2.5 million in kettle donations before Christmas. Jessica hopes that many other people will join her this Christmas season.

“In spite of our busy and unpredictable schedules, we have continued to bell ring each year because we have repeatedly seen just how compelling our presence next to a red kettle can be.”
