Salvation Army Bell Ringing

December 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Kids Impact Community as we partner with the Salvation Army of Milwaukee County to join their long standing holiday tradition of ringing bells to fill the red kettles.

Purpose: We will be joining the Red Kettle Mission as Bell Ringers. Bell ringing is a long standing holiday tradition across the nation. Children of all ages, along with their parents, will have the opportunity engage with community members by maning a red kettle and ringing a bell.  Donations support more than 80 programs and services in Milwaukee County, including the Salvation Army Toy Shop, the Backpack and School Supplies Program, Coats for Kids, Christmas Family Feast, the Emergency Lodge and two food pantries.

Impact: Though conversation, good cheer, singing (not required) and bell ringing, children will experience how their actions help fill the red kettle and bring smiles to community members. They will also see that many  small donations create a large one and everyone’s contribution makes a difference.

Activities:  Families will socialize with people passing by, offer cheerful holiday greetings, sing carols (if you like) and ring the red kettle bells. This is a very fun and joyful family activity.

When and where:  Saturday, December 16 from 4-6pm at Winkie’s , Monday, December 18 from 9-11am at Winkie’s and Friday, December 20 from 4-6pm at Pick ‘N Save, Glendale (6969 Port Washington Rd).  Families can sign-up for 30 or 60 minute shifts.
