Bell ringing for Salvation Army

Join Toddlers and Kids on a Mission 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:  Metro Market in Shorewood.  The exact entrance location will be emailed prior to the mission.  Event will take place the 10:00am-6:00pm on Saturday, December 15th.  Families can sign-up for 30 or 60 minute shifts.

Cancellations: Please contact asap in the event of a cancellation so we can add waitlisted families to the event.

Participant Cap: Up to 16 families.

Registration: Available Here

Age range: All are welcome!

Materials:  Just bring yourselves! Red aprons and bells will be provided.

Questions: Please contact Kim Robinson with any questions.  We will send you an email to confirm registration and touch base before the event.
