We’re thrilled you are interested in being a bell ringer this Holiday season!

Having volunteers help with bell ringing allows us to provide even more resources for the hungry, hurting, and homeless of Northwest Arkansas. Change collected at area stores as part of the Red Kettle campaign stays local and specifically helps the hurting, hungry and homeless in our community. Below are a few details to help you get ready to ring.



Bell Ringing Dates, Times & Locations

November 10 – December 23
Monday – Saturday: 10 am – 7 pm
*some people and groups adjust times earlier and later (e.g. 8:00 am – 8:30 pm).

Locations: We have bell ringers in 50 different locations throughout Northwest Arkansas.

Please consider serving a minimum of 4 hours.
If we can schedule you for a 4-hour block, this makes coordination all around easier for people picking up and dropping off kettles throughout the area. If you are unable to do 4 hours, we understand and are happy to work with you – just let us know
