Help the Salvation Army ring in this holiday season by donating time or money to those in need. Whether you’re organizing a fundraiser or ringing a bell, you can be one of the nearly 1.5 million volunteers.

“I like this charity because they really walk the walk,” said Brenda Cannon, a volunteer bell ringer. 

Bell ringing is all about seeing the kindness of strangers willing to give. You meet new people who are happy to donate and strike up conversations.

“We always have such a good time playing music and talking to people,” said Ashley Secrets, a volunteer bell ringer. 

There are many ways to give hope to families and individuals experiencing hardship. If you are interested, you can help by donating a meal, providing financial assistance, asking friends and family to donate, hosting a fundraiser and even donating your old car. But don’t forget, help is appreciated at all times of the year, not just around the holidays. You can give the gift that keeps on giving by setting up monthly automatic donations. 

If you don’t want to give online, there are chances to donate literally around every corner. From angel trees at your local Walmart to bell ringers outside popular stores, there is no shortage of opportunities. 

The Salvation Army truly cares about the people they help as well as their volunteers.
