Salvation Army Bell Ringing

December 2 @ 4:00 pm - December 17 @ 6:00 pm

Join KIC as we partner with the Salvation Army of Milwaukee County to participate in their long-standing holiday tradition of ringing bells to fill the red kettles. This year, the need has increased.


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


For children of all ages to engage with community members and spread joy and kindnesss. 


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 can create a large impact.

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.
