Ring-a-ling! Third-graders Ring the Bell for the Red Kettles

Ringing for the Red Kettles

The sound of the Salvation Army bell ringing is not just the sound of the bell, it's the sound of helping others in need.  Each November through Christmas Eve, the Salvation Army of Des Moines collects donations through its Red Kettle Campaign in the community and online.  Volunteers ring bells near the kettles in hopes that passersby will open their hearts and pocketbooks to contribute a donation to be used to help those in need when they need it most.

As an annual December service project, Mrs. Brown's third grade students volunteer for an afternoon of bell ringing and singing at multiple Salvation Army Red Kettle locations within our local community.  The students and their parent volunteers help spread holiday cheer, hope, and help make a difference during the holiday season.   

St. Augustin Catholic School is very proud of our students’ dedication to serving the community and would especially like to thank the parent volunteers who accompanied the students on location.
