Ring Bells at Christmas - Go to www.registertoring.com

Nearly half of our annual budget is funded by your contributions to our annual Red Kettle Campaign in the months of November and December. You can make a difference by ringing a bell at one of our 60 Red Kettles around the greater Des Moines area. Bell ringing shifts are usually two hours, and we ring bells every day except Sundays and Thanksgiving Day.
