How can you and a group of friends, family or co-workers help the Chicagoland community this holiday season?
The Salvation Army always has opportunities to volunteer throughout the year, but need is greatest during the holiday season. Thousands seek refuge from the blistering cold of Midwest winters, while many families want nothing more than a nourishing holiday meal together. You can help them – and with only one hand and two hours. How? Be a Bell Ringer.
In just one day of ringing you could raise hundreds of dollars! Most volunteer Bell Ringers raise $31/hour on average.
Here’s some ways a few hours of kettle bell ringing can impact those in need in Chicago and the surrounding burbs:
- $40 allows The Salvation Army to provide 1 month of diapers to 4 moms
- $88 can offset the cost of a night of shelter and a meal for a family
- $166 provides 3 meals a day for a week to a senior citizen
- $240 brings music lessons to a child for a whole year

You could potentially raise $5,000 this holiday season when you set up a team kettle. Contact us for more information on getting started: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-218-8998.
