Volunteer Bell Ringer Opportunities

Did you know that your time and donations can provide miracles for our neighbors here in Allen County?  Two hours of your time can help stop a family of four from going hungry for one month through our Food Pantry.  Four hours of your time can help keep a family in their home for another month.

Volunteers are needed to help ring in the Christmas season at area kettle locations.  Consider ringing as an individual, a family, a company, a school or a church.   We have a variety of locations and times where volunteers can ring.  Some of our volunteers dress up in Christmas hats, sing songs, play instruments and show their Christmas spirit.
