The Salvation Army asks the community to volunteer to help the bell ring at their Red Kettles at local stores. Bell ringers will be stationed at King Soopers, Safeway, Walmart, and Sam’s Club stores in Loveland, Hay’s Market in Berthoud, and Scheel’s and Hobby Lobby in Johnstown Monday through Saturday from Friday, November 18 through Christmas Eve.

“Bell ringing is a fun holiday volunteer opportunity,” said Olga Duvall, Loveland Service Center Director. “People of all ages, abilities, and skills enjoy ringing bells and spreading Christmas cheer. 100% of funds raised stay in our community and allow The Salvation Army to help people all year long”

A two-hour shift can raise $100, enough to provide groceries for one family or help an elderly resident with medical equipment. You can sign up for your Bell Ringing shift HERE or call 970-699-8380.
